"For when God made the promise to Abraham,
since He could swear by no one greater, He
swore by Himself saying,
'I will surely bless you, and I will surely
And thus, having patiently waited,
he obtained the promise."
God is faithful. Be strong in the Lord. Stand, and having done all to stand, stand. Do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
