“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;” Hebrews 6:19Text — Hebrews 6:13-19
An anchor is the heavy object that is tied to a ship that keeps it secure to the bottom of the sea. An anchor provides a firm foundation and security. In our Bible passage, the word “anchor” is used as a symbol to represent God and our faith, that which keeps us steadfast and gives us hope during trials and storms of life.
We need a strong, unbreakable anchor for our souls.
Jesus is that Anchor. Connection to Him is our only hope. As the world goes through the experience of strange diseases like Covid-19, economic problems, insecurity and others, we can hold tight to His promises. He promises never to leave us or forsake us, He is our Protector, He is our Strength when we are weak, He is our Shepherd, He loves us and longs to hear our prayers.
Hold on to the Anchor of your soul. Spend quality time each day to study and meditate on the word of God so that your faith in God can grow. Also spend time with God in prayer. Jesus is the Anchor of hope for those who accept and trust Him. He loves you and will hold you tight when you are confused, lonely and troubled.
