Under Pressure 4: Disappointment & Unfulfilled Desires - Jon Furman

Hebrews 11:13-16 & Psalm 37:3-6

Proverbs 13:12 (NLT)

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.

Hebrews 11:13a

All these people died still believing what God had promised them…They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it.

When we see a resolution or possible solution, we find ourselves flooded with hope.

Hebrews 11:13b-15 (NLT)

They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth. Obviously people who say such things are looking forward to a country they can call their own. If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back.

Hebrews 11:16 (NLT)

But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

The reward for a Godly life is the presence of God in your life.

“A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they shall never sit.” – Greek Proverb
