The Anchor of our Soul

November 11, 2016

Hebrews 6:16-20 NASB … For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. 17 In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. 19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, 20 where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

We have an anchor that keeps the soul,
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love. —ODB -Owens

To avoid drifting away – stay anchored to the Rock!

We’ll be steady in the storm if we’re anchored to Christ the Rock.


Let hope anchor your soul in the solid Rock. Jesus is the anchor that will always hold, firm and secure!


Jesus, in the face of all kinds of trouble and uncertainty, help me to have a confident hope that is anchored in Your unfailing love for me.

Ears to Hear

January 2, 2016

Ephesians 1:15-16 NET … For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you when I remember you in my prayers.

From NetBible Eph 1:15-16

  • because I have heard of your faith & love = Paul’s prayer can be made for his audience because he knows that they are true believers.
  • Faith in the Lord Jesus and love for all the saints = reasons to give thanks=> very similar to Col 1:4

From NetBible Col 1:3-5
NET … We always give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 since we heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you have for all the saints. 5 Your faith and love have arisen from the hope laid up for you in heaven, which you have heard about in the message of truth, the gospel …

  • Thus the phrase “Your faith and love have arisen from the hope” is literally “because of the hope(of salvation in Christ).” The perfect tense “have arisen” was chosen in the English to reflect the fact that the recipients of the letter had acquired this hope at conversion in the past, but that it still remains and motivates them to trust in Christ and to love one another.
  • So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. –Ro 10:17
Thank You Father that faith in Christ comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Continue to let this faith in Christ and love for the saints grow. Continue to open ears to hear and follow what Your Spirit is saying.

More Than You Can Imagine!

May 30, 2015


No eye has seen
No ear has heard
No heart has perceived
All that the Lord has prepared
All that He has made and keeps ready
For those who love Him
Jesus Christ …

He is able to do
More than you can imagine!

He is able to do the impossible! – Lk1:36-37

Praise You Lord Jesus – You are able to do more than we can imagine. You are able to do the impossible! Today, help us to get a glimpse of what You have prepared and made ready for us. We love You Lord Jesus!

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 AMP
9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]
10 Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny].

Ephesians 3:17-21 AMP
17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

Faith Triumphs in Trouble

November 2, 2014

Romans 5:1-5 NKJV
Faith Triumphs in Trouble

5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

When you are going through the rain
Let the “Son”shine of God’s love be poured into your heart
It’s then that His rainbow of promise will appear.

Trust in the LORD and His promises
Hope in Him and you won’t be disappointed!
