Hope in His Power: Anchor of the Soul
Hebrews 6:17-19 (NKJV)
17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. 19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,
How often do you turn to God’s Promises to stand upon? His Promises never fail, He gives encouraging Words in His perfect timing, and His Word is truth. Too many times as we journey through life, we have areas of comfort to lean upon that are not from God. Comfort that does not always last or it may be comfort that gives false hope.
We get our true comfort and peace from the power of God’s love. His Scriptures show us results of people who have had struggles and His love was there for them. We see comfort in the Scriptures of His promise that He listens, cares, and when we seek His will He answers in His perfect timing. We must spend time with Him to recognize when He is showing us things that make a difference. We must be drawn to His love by spending time in prayer and in His Word to know we can overcome any storm when we are anchored in His love.
So, spend time with Him in prayer and in His Word daily and allow Him to show you His power and allow His love to be the anchor of your soul.
Too many times I turn to other things when I need Your comfort and direction. Please forgive me where I have failed in this area. As I draw near to You through prayer and in Your Scriptures help me to see Your truth and help me to know how to stand upon Your Promises. I thank You that Your love never fails.
In Your Loving Son’s Holy Name I pray, Amen.
