We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
If our hope is anchored in Jesus, when we go through storms we can be confident that we will remain connected, safe, and secure. Whatever storm we face we can trust that Jesus will never leave us and our hope is never misplaced.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that he is faithful. God never changes his mind, he never forgets, and his Word is true. Even when it feels like he has forgotten us, have faith and remember his timing is never late.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
My love for God and gratitude for his mercy and goodness inspires me to share his love with others. Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father would be glorified. We need to do something, help somebody, invite someone, if not us, then who will?
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
We all have days when we wake up and feel like we just can’t face the day. Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the king and straighten your crown. Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at his feet and receive mercy for today.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
When times are tough, when you are struggling, or when things in your life seem stagnant, don’t give up and don’t lose your confidence in God. Wait without giving up, you only fail if you quit, do what God asks of you, finish your race strong, and you will receive what He has promised.
so that by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge would have strong encouragement and indwelling strength to hold tightly to the hope set before us.
The Bible tells us that God cannot lie, His promises and oaths are unchangeable. Therefore, we can believe and be confident that if God has made a promise we can count on it and not only can we count on it, we can live our lives by it.
