Faith. To not shrink back and be destroyed (Hebrews 10:39)

"But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls." - Hebrews 10:39

The tricky part about this is that in order to say with confidence we are of those who have faith, we have to actually have faith. In order to believe we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, we have to actually not shrink back.

All things are possible through the Lord and I'm convinced the only way we would ever be people who qualify for this verse is through Him.

But imagine being someone who has faith. I mean REALLY has faith. Imagine trusting the Lord so much you pray for people for healing with full confidence the Lord will either heal them or has a greater plan. When I pray for people for healing I ask ahead of time in my head why the Lord might not want to answer this prayer. I doubt because so few of the people I lay hands on are actually healed. Yet I'm supposed to pray.

I want to persevere, not shrink back and be destroyed but preserve my soul. Lord make me this man.
