We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain
Happy Tuesday! This devotional is dedicated to all of us at this time. Yesterday I was so frustrated with the news of the restaurants and gyms starting to close again.
I know that it’s the safest thing for everyone, but in my own selfish way, I wanted to see the gyms continue to stay open. I have lost 10lbs, and I didn’t want to stop.
I realized I was throwing a mini tantrum, and I took a step back, and I thought about the bigger picture. I thought about what this verse truly meant. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul.
I love that the verse talks about an anchor. Think about what an anchor does. It keeps the boat from floating away with the current. So remember, we have an anchor of hope. His name is Jesus. Don’t get swept with the current of the news. Don’t feed into the fear and the anger. Just continue to go with the motions of the ocean, yet remember you are tied down. Your anchor is Jesus and his word.
He gives us hope that right now, he is working on our behalf.
Jesus, we trust you! We lean on you. Thank you for being an anchor in our life. No matter how rough the waters may seem, you are in control. We thank you for being a constant figure of love, hope, and strength in our life. We love you and honor you. In your name, we pray, Amen!
