Sometimes the world holds out hope for us, giving us a reason to believe that tomorrow will be better, and sometimes the world yanks that hope out from under us. However, the God of heaven never disappoints us, for He shows us the hope that our souls need,

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6.19–20). 

In the previous sentences, the writer explained that God gave His counsel and His oath pertaining to the blessings we have in Jesus, allowing us to lay hold of the hope that He has set before us. Then the writer said that hope functions as an anchor for our souls.

Questions:

  • What has been the anchor of your soul?
  • If it has not been the promises of God, has it disappointed you?
