In our spiritual lives, we must make sure that our hope – is attached to the RIGHT anchor that will keep the ship of our lives from being tossed and torn by the storms of this life. This anchor is the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our hope in the Lord is truly the anchor for our soul both in good times and in bad. We have felt disappointed and life has seemed rough many times but we have been given in Him a precious hope that will continue to sustain us.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.” ~ Hebrews 6:19
We believe God for many things and many times feel let down. But more than believing for a specifics we believe in God. We can’t predict what is going to happen next in our lives. We make our plans and if they don’t pan out as we intended we can’t lose hope. Hope for our future, hope for what God has planned for each of our lives. Even if adverse circumstances overtake our lives we can’t give up, we can’t lose our hope and our joy.
It is what keeps us standing firm in troubles. If we stop hoping we can expect that our lives will be miserable indeed. There are no guarantees in this life that trouble will not come, and that we won’t be disappointed. What we can do is continue to hope in God and His miracle working power, and His incredible wisdom, and trust in Him. We can expect good things from God but we cannot expect to custom order miracles and command Him.
So I ask you: Where is your hope? Have you placed it in the things of this world: your husband, children, money, job, ministry, approval of others which are imperfect, temporary and will fail you? Or have you tied your “rope” to the only anchor that is sure and steadfast, the living Hope, the perfect One who never fails and is coming again soon to receive His Bride?
Have a wonderful day as you hope in the anchor for your soul.
