We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. – (Hebrews 6:19a, NIV)
This hope is like an anchor for us. It is strong and sure and keeps us safe. – (Hebrews 6:19a, ERV)
We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God Himself. – (Hebrews 6:19a, TPT)
God is our hope that secures our soul when all seems unsteady around us. He is our anchor in rough waters and keeps us safe through the most severe of storms. The Lord is strong and secure, even when our circumstances would lead us to believe otherwise. Just as calm waters and blue skies appear again after even the most tumultuous of storms at sea, so too does hope return as lessons are learned, while He calms the storms in me. May we hold fast to hope in He who is our anchor, strong and secure; as He has an unbreakable hold on our hearts and lives and will not let go.
We have hope secure,
It anchors the soul;
For it’s strong and sure,
It’s God in control.
The place hope is found,
Is trusting in God;
He is safe harbor,
Each course that we plot.
Hold fast to the hope,
That anchors the soul;
It’s firm and secure,
And in Him, we’re whole.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are the hope that anchors our soul, firm and secure. Thank You that we can trust in You and You are strong and sure to keep us safe in You. Forgive us for seeking security anywhere other than You. Teach us to trust You more, as You alone are the One who is the anchor for our soul when waters grow rough from life’s storms. Show us how to love those around us in a way that helps set stability where things are shaky and points people to You, the anchor for our soul. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we cling to hope in You, the anchor of our soul. Amen.
