Hope ... and Anchor of the Soul (Hebrews 6:18-19)

Today’s scripture: Hebrews 6:18-19

What is an anchor? What does it do?

An anchor keeps a boat steady in the water. It keeps it from drifting out to sea. It keeps the passengers safe, knowing that they will stay where they’re supposed to.

We, too, have an anchor, an anchor for our souls: God cannot lie.

God is truth. He cannot lie.

And if that’s true, and I believe it is, then we can have great hope in Him.

We can have hope that we won’t drift away from His perfect plan for us.

We can have hope that we will be kept safe.

We can have hope that we will remain “sure and steadfast” as we continue our journey in Him.

When the sea around us is stormy and the world spreads its lies, we can have hope that God is truth and that He cannot—He will not lie.

Have you been living in the storm of lies? Remember that God will never lie to you. Remember that He is your anchor.
