So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose,
He guaranteed it with an oath,
So that by two unchangeable things, in which
It is impossible for God to lie,
We who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul,
A hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,
Where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
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!
God reached down in love and rescued Cassandra from her sin at the age of 21: changing her life, purpose, and focus forever.
