Our hope is secure and immovable, anchored in God, just as a ship anchor holds firmly to the seabed.
To the true seeker who comes to God in belief. God gives an unconditional promise of acceptance. When you ask God with openness, honesty and sincerity to save you from your sins, He will do it. This truth should give you encouragement, assurance and confidence.
The thing about anchors is that to be effective, they must be attached to something. There is always a connection: a rope or a chain. They aren’t wireless and can’t be connected to Bluetooth. That connection is every bit as vital as the anchor itself. It doesn’t matter how securely that big hunk of metal is wedged into the ocean floor – if you’re not tied to it, it’s not the least bit helpful. The chain matters greatly.
The wonderful thing about the anchor of the soul is that it, too, comes equipped with a mighty chain. Hope has a rope: the Holy Spirit.
Before entering God’s presence in the ascension, Jesus promised to send His spirit to be our Helper. He is our great rope that cannot be frayed, the one who has lashed our hearts to heaven.
Through the Spirit we have an everlasting guarantee, a down payment on the life that is to come. He is the proof that there is more in store and the death is not the end.
In times of overwhelming sadness, your anchor should strengthen you, but you should also be encouraged by the chain.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, JESUS, has entered on our behalf. he has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizidek”
