A Steadfast Hope…Anchored In Him

Because God wanted to show his unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. Jesus has entered there on our behalf as a forerunner, because he has become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 6:17-20)

When chaos encircles and threatens to drown us in its murky depths…may we call out to our Creator God who spoke into the darkness, separated the seas from dry land, and brought order from disorder.

When the fever pitched voices of worldly ideologies ring loudly in our ears…may we cry out to our Merciful Protector, who sheltered righteous Noah safely in the flood, and preserved a remnant of those who trusted Him.

When we wearily await the outcome of God’s work in our lives…may we, like Abraham, trust our Faithful Father, recount promises as numerous as grains of sand on the seashore, and recall His steadfast love.

When we face insurmountable obstacles that impede our paths…may we look to our Omnipotent God, who divided the sea for Moses, to provide courage to pass boldly through danger with our feet firmly planted on solid ground.

When it seems that peace is just outside our grasp…may we, like David, follow the Good Shepherd as He guides us beside quiet waters and restores our souls.

When we fear outcomes that are beyond our control…may we, like the disciples on the boat with Jesus, see clearly how the Maker of the wind and waves is sovereign over even the most tumultuous storms.

When we are enticed to quench our thirst with the world’s fleeting pleasures…may we, like the woman at the well, drink deeply of the living water provided by Christ our Lord.

When faced with temptation to plant our anchors elsewhere…may we remain securely fixed in Him, our only steadfast hope.
