Like a ship lost at sea, tossed around by crashing waves and heading in unknown directions with every storm,
life can leave us feeling confused and beaten up over and over again if we don't have something to keep us anchored.
We try to find anchors in our careers, but sometimes jobs are lost.
We try to find anchors in our friends, but in their humanness they often let us down unknowingly.
We try to find anchors in our families, but tragedy strikes and the glass covering our family picture frame is forever shattered.
So how can we find an anchor in an uncertain, ever-changing, often scary world?
Hebrews 6 says that God has given both a pledge and an oath, and that these two things are unchangeable.
He promised that those who receive His promise can be perfectly sure that He will never change His mind.
This means that since He promises Heaven for those who accept His Son as Savior, then Heaven is a guaranteed future for Christians.
Because of this promise, Hebrews goes on to say that those "who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us."
When we have this hope, listen to what we have for our souls...........
"This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.
It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary."
I don't know about you, but I need a sanctuary.
I need a quiet place to know I am in the presence of God.
I need peace.
When storms hit, which they will, know that God has promised an anchor.
Hope leads us all where we long to be.
Into God's presence.
If you're needing Him today, know that Hope can lead you there..........
and keep you there.
Through every storm, every fear, every question, every tear.
Jesus led the way, conquered death, paid the price, and set us free.
When He came, He became our anchor.
That's why He's called our Savior.
He saved us.
Turn to Him today.
