Hope, Our Anchor

Hebrews 6:19-20 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

shipstormThis morning, I praise the Lord for the hope we have in and through Jesus Christ. Our soul is like a ship, sailing through testy and at times tempestuous waters of life. But with Christ, and the hope we have because of Him, our soul has an anchor – one that is “sure and steadfast.”

It’s a wonderful life with Christ on this side of eternity, but when sorrows, anxieties, fears, and storms come, I praise the Lord that He is my hope, my anchor, and the “health of my countenance” (Ps 42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.). Might we “set our hope in God” (Ps 78:7) today, for it is that hope that will keep us anchored, and faithful, until the day He calls us home!
