Tenaciousness can carry an negative connotation at times. Someone being considered tenacious can be linked to being rude, aggressive, and without care and concern for others. Isn’t it amazing how the Lord can turn whatever He desires from negative to positive for His glory? Let’s consider this verse:
“Inasmuch then as we [believers] have a great High Priest who has [already ascended and] passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith and cling tenaciously to our absolute trust in Him as Savior].” Hebrews 4:14 AMP
The amplified version of Hebrews 4:14 exhorts believers to cling tenaciously! Let us cling tenaciously to our absolute trust in the Father! Let’s be firm, aggressive, and without care or concern for the things of the world when it comes to trusting in our Father! Let’s be unwilling to yield or compromise when it comes to holding to our confession and our faith in the Lord our God.
The world will want to define you as foolish, naive, and silly for clinging to Someone who you cannot see, touch, or feel. This world will want us to loosen our grip and grab on to the tangible and the destructible. The Word gives us that warning:
Be tenacious for our Father! Cling to our Creator! This concept of clinging requires focus, strength, patience and love. Your firm grasp is power! Your faith will move the mountains of your life, if only we can remember to cling tenaciously.
Be unwavering in articulating about the power of the Lord our God. Be passionate about demonstrating the love of God through Jesus Christ. Be immovable about declaring the goodness of God.
Sisters, let’s cling tenaciously to the very One who saved us from the brink of death. Let’s cling to our Savior.
Peace and Blessings
