- Unbelief will keep us from Heaven -

Hebrews 3:1Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said:
“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

When going through suffering we must guard our hearts against unbelief.

'But I believe!'  I can hear your voices protesting. . . but belief is not just a statement of fact or a one-time confession, we need to pursue it with constant action on our part. Trust me, as I stated (was that back in April?) We must not lose heart and become unbelieving by complaining, grumbling, growing weary to the point of giving up. (Gal.6:9)  We must be thankful for the things God has done, great and small. (Phil.4:6 and Ps.126:3)  He is in control and He will bring it to pass in His time, not ours.  (Isaiah 40:31)

To stay strong, we must exercise our spiritual knowledge in doing what God has taught us through His word.  It is essential that we let God's word dwell richly in us.  Read (or listen to), meditate, ponder, memorize, and sing it throughout the day. (2 Pet.1:5-9)

God knew we needed this reminder, or He would not have written it here.  So, my dear sisters, I exhort (strongly urge, emphatically plead) that you read God's word, understand what He is asking you, and do it with all your heart.  

Today may be all we have; this moment, this time, the present, to do what we must do.  Do not procrastinate in giving your lives to living totally for the One Who gave His all that we might have life, abundantly and eternally.
