Today Reminder - 23 May 2012 (Hope)

My prayer for you for today is that you will know God’s promise brings hope and this hope is an anchor for your soul, in Jesus name.

Hebrews 6:18-20
So God has given both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Hope - Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. Every day of your life Jesus stands before the Father brining you before Him, and pleading your case. He is the hope that we need and the anchor that holds us. He leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary where we are free to talk to God and seek His presence in our lives. How amazing is this gift that we received that allows us to enter into God’s sanctuary and freely talk with Him. How fortunate are we to be able to bring all our problems and worries to Him and He will guide us and help us giving us hope in what lies ahead. 

This hope that God gives will give us more confidence in everything that we do, because we know God will always keep His promise. He will never let us stand alone and He will never ignore our cries. Therefore just like a ship’s anchor keeps it in place against the multitude of waves that crashes into it, we must hold on to the anchor that is Jesus as the waves of this life crashes into us. 

My dear friend, the hope that lies in Jesus is far greater than the hope that the world has to offer. In Jesus we will face many difficult and tough situations but we will never be alone nor will we be tempted above our abilities. Hold on to Him and do not give up and keep yourself firmly anchored on Him and I pray that His hope and strength will encourage you every minute of your life.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers
