So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, (as it is written) “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” - Hebrews 10:35-37
I'm confident that you have saved me for all eternity. I am confident that you are watching over my life too. In my faith I want to serve you in every relationship, every social setting and in every way. But even with all my confidence and devotion, evil is right there with me. I am tempted to doubt. I hear messages from the world that you are only an invention of people for a crutch. I am tempted to live for myself in the moment and quit serving others. It helps to know you're coming back soon to call me to account with all people. It keeps me honest and on my toes. Please keep speaking to my soul through your Holy Spirit using your word, so I do not throw away my faith and spiritual blessings for a life of self indulgence and unbelief. Give me the perseverance to make it all the way to the door from earth to heaven without wavering. And make me an example and strength for others by the way you sustain me through every trial. I depend on you to get me there.

Hang on to God under every pressure and he will lift you out of it at just the right time.
