Have you had your Joy Juice today? The hope of Christ anchors your soul and fills you with His joy.
Hebrews 6:19 is a source of strength when we are going through a storm. The New King James Version says it like this:
" This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,"
Let’s examine the words: HOPE, ANCHOR and STEADFAST. The steadfast love of our Father keeps us anchored as we find hope in Him.
· Steadfast: that means unwavering, faithful, constant. How beautifully that describes our Heavenly Father’s love!
· Anchor: We use the noun “anchor” often when we are speaking of a boat or a ship in the water. An anchor holds the vessel in place and keeps it from moving away from its desired location or position.
· Hope: Biblical hope is not an escape from reality. It doesn’t let us drift along without a destination. When our hope is based on God’s Word and His promises, it will give us direction.
Our faith in God is like an anchor, holding us ‘in place’ so that He can lovingly direct our course. That should remind us of the hope that is always available to each child of God.
Hold steadfastly to The Anchor and find hope and joy in the Lord.
