The Anchor of Hope

“We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat which sits in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold, and where Jesus, our forerunner, has gone in before us. He is now and forever our royal Priest like Melchizedek. (Heb 6:19, TPT)”

“Even amid the smoke of strife, the mists of misfortune, the tornado of trial, the billows of blame, the welter of war and tides of trouble, ‘We have an anchor that keeps the soul, steadfast and sure while the billows roll.’ Christ as our Anchor is weighty in authority; therefore stable and strong. He is heavy in honor; therefore steadfast and secure. And he is mighty in majesty; therefore supreme and serene. The entry of Christ on our behalf into the heavenly sanctuary has ratified all the promises of God in perfect righteousness, re-established our relationship to the Father in permanent reconciliation, re-instated our forfeited authority in a prevalent regency, and has registered our redemption from ruin by His pertinent resurrection. Our hope is centered in the divine purpose, which was purposed in Christ before the world began, unto our glory. Christ came to fulfill that purpose; wherefore He is the Anchor of Hope.(A)”

Pray

“Father God I thank and praise you because I have hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding my soul to you (Heb. 6:19, TPT). An anchor is an instrument that holds in security and safety when danger and disaster are threatening. Father you again use a material figure, and its function, to personify a living and lasting reality. Messiah Jesus you are strong and steadfast; therefore, this chain of hope is securely fixed to you, the One who never fails. Jesus, I praise you for being my Anchor of Hope because you have created a new consciousness within me concerning things to come. Anticipation is awakened within me to look and labor and long for a better country, a brighter city and a more blessed community than can be realized here on earth. Messiah Jesus you are the unanswerable evidence of my ultimate entrance into an immortal society, because as Forerunner, you are already there (Heb. 6:20). You have created in me a passion for a higher friendship, a belief in the happier fellowship and a faith in the holier family, the household of God, of which you spoke of as ‘My Father’s house’ (Jn. 14:1). Speaking through The Apostle Paul you declared, that you in me is ‘the hope of glory’ (Col. 1:27), this hope supplies me with the energy to work hard and an enlightened expectation. Even amid the smoke of strife, the mists of misfortune, the tornado of trial, the billows of blame, the welter of war and tides of trouble, I have an anchor that keeps my ‘soul, steadfast and sure while the billows roll.’ Anchor Jesus you are weighty in authority; therefore, stable and strong. You are heavy in honor; therefore, steadfast and secure. And mighty in majesty; therefore, supreme and serene. Your entry, Messiah Jesus, on my behalf into the heavenly sanctuary has ratified all the promises of God in perfect righteousness, re-established my relationship with Father in permanent reconciliation, re-instated my forfeited authority in a prevalent regency, and has registered my redemption from ruin by your pertinent resurrection. My hope is centered in the divine purpose, which Father planned for you to accomplish before the world began, unto my glory. Thank you, Jesus, for fulfilling Fathers purpose; therefore, making you the Anchor of my Hope.(B)”
