We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, Hebrews 6:19.
There are three elements to hope. First, hope anticipates change and fills the souls with anticipation. Secondly, hope is assertive and meets pain head-on. Hope requires active involvement such as prayer. Lastly, hope is related to God’s love for us and His ability to make our life anew.
- When you are anchored to hope, nothing moves you. The storms may come but your anchor is down. Your life circumstances may fill you with worry, anxiety, and stress. Sometimes there are no logical reasons to have hope. God is not limited to earthly things. God would not have allowed it if He wasn’t going to use it for your good. Say to yourself, “I may not see a way out of this but I know God does. I know God can open doors no man can shut.”
- When you are anchored to hope God will make things happen in your life. Don’t pull up your anchor or you will drift into self-pity.
- When you are anchored to hope you are tied to it. You can’t go far, your faith will kick in.
Do you have your anchor down? Are you expectant that you will beat an addiction, that your family will be restored? Do you expect to be blessed? Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts give thanks to your God that the answers are on the way.
If you are anchored to hope, God will restore back double of what you have lost. Have hope that great blessings are on the way.
May God’s peace be in your hearts. Love, Sarah
