Is the current metaphor for your life “a feeling of being tossed about on stormy seas without an anchor”? I hope my Biblical thoughts will help you set your anchor in the hope that God is holding out to everyone.

Hebrews 6:17-19 tells us when God wanted to prove for certain that His promise to His people could not be broken, He made a vow. God cannot tell lies! And so, His promises and vows are two things that can never be changed. We have run to God for safety. Now, His promises should greatly encourage us to take hold of the hope that is right in front of us. This hope is like a firm and steady anchor for our souls. In fact, hope reaches behind the curtain and into “The Most Holy Place,” into the very presence of God.

God doesn’t want us to live in an atmosphere of fear and frustration, but in an atmosphere of hope! We must not become distracted. We must keep our eyes on Jesus, who leads us and makes our faith complete. He endured the shame of being nailed to a cross, because He knew that later He would be glad He did. Now, He is seated at the right side of God’s throne! Are some of us forgetting that He is still there on the throne, and that the blessed Holy Spirit is still right here with us? The Holy Spirit has not been preparing us to lose heart, or to lose the battle with the devil.

Keep doing what you know is right. We, God’s people, refuse to have our hearts influenced or dampened by the world’s darkness. In this season of testing of hearts, determine to pass the test. Set your anchor in God. In the words of the title of the old hymn, “My anchor holds”.
