Hope is the anchor for our souls. – Hebrews 6

From my reading in Hebrews 6 in the One Year Bible New Testament.

If God said it, you can take it to the bank!

God’s promises are 100% true. He never lies. As Christians, we have HOPE that is based on the trustworthiness of God himself.

“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.” Hebrews 6:18-19a

Our HOPE in Jesus is the anchor of our souls.

An anchor keeps a ship from being blown and tossed by the seas. Our HOPE in the promises of God is what keeps us grounded.

James 1:6 says that in prayer those who doubt are like the waves of the sea going back and forth. We must MAKE A CHOICE to anchor ourselves in God’s precious promises. We must choose HOPE!

So hold on to HOPE!

God will not let you of you, so don’t let go of your HOPE in Him. Run to Him for your refuge. He will never go back on is Word.

Have you been anchoring yourself on the HOPE of God’s promises?
