Hold Fast To What Is Yours

11 I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. ~ Revelation 3:11

Jesus told the Church in Philadelphia to hold fast to what they had so that someone else wouldn’t take their crown from them. So many of us take this warning from Jesus as a warning against someone taking the crown of life from you, but that’s not Jesus’ warning. Paul said that he was certain that no one could remove us from the love of Christ. Therefore, no one could take or seize our salvation from us. Jesus was warning us about someone else taking our blessing, promise, etc. from us. So often, the Church holds on to the false hope of que sera, sera, but this isn’t Biblical. We all have promises, blessings, and favor given to us from the good LORD above, but unless we hold fast to them, unless we claim them, they won’t be given to us.

Moses was a man that was slow of speech and tongue; never is there a claim that he received his healing. Moses was called to go before Pharaoh alone, but Moses allowed his doubt and fear to get the better of him, and his descendants have long since been forgotten. Aaron, who wasn’t a part of the original plan but obeyed as the LORD called, seized Moses’ gift. It was Aaron’s descendants who became the priests and high priests of Israel. His descendants received the legacy that was initially intended for Moses’ descendants.

Your blessings, promises, and God-given favor aren’t just going to fall into your lap. You have to hold on to it by being obedient. You can’t allow any stronghold, whether it be fear, shame, doubt, anxiety, anger, grief, etc., to keep you from being obedient to God because you may just very well miss your good gift from your good Father in Heaven.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Hold Fast To What Is Yours.
