Embrace Hope as Your Anchor

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast and which enters the presence beyond the veil” (Heb. 6:19; NKJV). 

- This is the season of Advent. Advent means, the coming of…, or the coming to…! It is a season of hope. A time of anticipations and expectations. This is a time that we will see God honor His promises to us.
- If we are hoping (Anticipating, expecting) for a thing, we cannot look back, but we must look ahead.
- Hope never looks back, it always looks ahead.
- Expectation is our determination to see God bring to pass what He promised.
- Anchors are more effective when they are thrusted into raging seas.
- Anchors drag along the bottom of the ocean until they grip an immovable object.
- An anchor is only as secure as that to which it is fastened.

At Advent, our ultimate hope must be in Jesus and His promise to us of everlasting life!

Take Action:

1. Trust in the Lord to keep you steadfast when you are in the turbulent seasons of life.
2. Turn over to Him all of your burdens. He can work them out.
3. Trace back to that dwelling place. That is where your hope is sure and steadfast.

Points of Reflection:

1. The rope of your hope is safe in Jesus—Be anchored in Jesus.
2. The rope of your hope is safe in Jesus—Be assured that if you are connected to Jesus, there you will find safety (That is your dwelling place).
3. The rope of your hope is always steadfast in Jesus—Nothing can compromise what Jesus has established. Nothing can separate you from His love. STAY IN HIS GRIP!

Jesus wants to be your anchor in the storms of life and He longs for you to be connected to Him! Hope! It is the one thing you cannot live without! When your hope is in Jesus, you will be secure, safe, steadfast and confident in Jesus!


Lord, help me to remain steadfast and secure in you, when the storms of life are raging. Give me sufficient grace and strength to hold fast until my soul is secured in you. I am confident that as long as I am in you, nothing can snatch me from your grip. Thank you, Lord, that my hope is anchored in you; and my soul is anchored in You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
