You may not think of “holding fast” as an aggressive weapon in your spiritual arsenal — but it is. In this month’s edition of The Teaching Legacy of Derek Prince, we learn how “holding fast” protects a most valuable possession: our confession. This principle is vital for us, especially during times of personal pressure in our lives when it seems, as Derek says, that “all the powers of darkness are turned loose against us, tempting us to let go of our confession.”
In this fourth segment of our six-part series, “Twelve Steps to a Good Year,” Derek begins with Step 7: Let us hold fast our confession without wavering (Hebrews 10:23), and concludes with Step 8: Let us consider one another.
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” Hebrews 10:23.
The actual Scripture verse for Step 8 says, “Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24). Honestly, that is exactly what you do for us. Your friendship, prayers, encouragement and financial support inspire all of us here at DPM to carry on the work of serving you and distributing Derek’s materials all around the world. We’re so grateful for your participation in all that we do.
We hope you will draw deeply on the truths in this installment of “Twelve Steps to a Good Year.” And please let us know how we can be of further encouragement to you.
All the best,
P.S. Thank you again for all the ways you “consider” us in our work here. We want to return your kindness by inviting you to download Derek’s free message, “God’s Last Word: Hebrews 10:23-34.” It includes some helpful additional teaching on Steps 7 and 8 covered in this letter.
