Hebrews 10:39 ” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.”

The gist of this Scripture is repeated in Habakkuk 2:3-4 where it says, ” But the righteous will live by faith.  And if they shrink back, I will not be pleased with them.”  We all claim to have faith and trust in God…but do we really?   Shrinking back is hesitation and self-doubt that we can really do what God is calling us to.  Sure, we can believe for great miracles in someone else’s life…but when it comes down to trusting God in our own, we falter.  Self-doubt can effectively stop any Kingdom work the Lord has for you…for when you hesitate, you’re essentially telling God you don’t trust Him.  We are to live by faith, believing that if God calls us to something, He will equip us also.
