Wednesday Words to Live By – Hebrews 6:19

Hebrews 6:19

New Living Translation (NLT)

19 This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.

I saw this product in a magazine last night and immediately it caught my eye.

The “Philosophy” statement didn’t sit right with me so I instagramed it and wrote “This should read, where there is faith there is hope.”

Do you agree with that?

Anyway, I was reading Hebrews 6 this morning and I really love the picture of our hope being a trustworthy anchor that the verse gives. According to  Wiki “an anchor is a device, normally made of metal, that is used to connect a vessel to the bed of a body of water to prevent the vessel from drifting due to wind or current.”

No matter the storm, the anchor is designed to hold the dinghy/boat/ship in the position where it’s Captain had strategically sailed it to. Just because the anchor is there, it doesn’t mean the vessel will not have movement; it will rise with the tide and most likely it will get washed around by the waves. But you can bank on the anchor; your ship will not go anywhere.

That, my friends, is hope.
