Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise
the immutability of his counsel,
confirmed it by an oath:
That by two immutable things,
in which it was impossible for God to lie,
we might have a strong consolation,
who have fled for refuge
to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, Hebrews 6:17-20
The key to a hope in my Christian life is the Anchor of my soul. Thinking on truth...I have a refuge to a strong encouragement so I can hold fast to the hope or confident expectation that is set before me. A hope where Jesus has already gone on my behalf.
I may not always see the anchor, but He gives me the chain to look at!
Was it providential that a sweet young friend from a former church would have called me 3 months ago and asked to come to visit for a week during her spring break? The very week my little Zachariah was called home to Glory? What a comfort to have her when I was physically weak!
Was it providential that we had Tom and Caren Fuller to preach for our Bible conference? The very Sunday after the Lord took Zachariah home? What a comfort to have friends to show comfort from the word of God and to take Michael's place in the pulpit?
Was it providential for my parents to be able to find a helpers for Grandma and for dad to not be too busy to come and help officiate our little service?
When I see the chain that is attached to the Anchor, and I think on Truth...God's Word...I am reminded of God's love for me and the strong Anchor He is in the time of trouble!
