Our Hope in God
V.19 “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”
The hope referred to here in this verse is the hope we have in the Promises of God. Promises He has made and kept throughout Scripture. Promises of love, grace, mercy and blessings. We as God’s children and followers of Jesus are also given this hope.
This amazing hope is given to us so it can be like an anchor to our faith, holding it as the verse says, “firm and secure”. God does not want us to doubt him. He has given us his word, the Bible, as a constant reminder of his faithfulness. As we read it, we will grow in the knowledge of his goodness and love, keeping our faith firm and secure.
Loving Father, thank you for your Word and the messages of love and hope that you speak to me through it. Help me by your Holy Spirit to use them to strengthen my faith in You and your Son, Jesus Christ my Saviour. Amen.
