Heb. 10:38,39 Now the just shall live by faith; but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition...Perdition is a word we don't use on a day to day basis, but in this verse, it has a powerful meaning. It means something so ruined and rotten that it is decomposing-a stench of decay. Faith pleases God. We, as believers are called to live by faith. Faith is taking God at His Word and acting upon it. It's with our hand of faith that we reach out and take all that God has promised. It is vital to feed our faith daily, upon these precious promises, with a steady diet of God's Word. Declare this over your life today - I will remain steadfast in my commitment, and nothing can sway or move me to change my mind. I refuse to give up any of my God-promised territory! My faith is tough, resistant, persistent, obstinate, and stubborn. My spirit man is strong and tenacious and I refuse to draw back!
