What’s Holding You?

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.  Hebrews 6:19 (NIV)

People today try to float without an anchor.  They have nothing to hold on to for peace through storms.  Think about what happened recently with the hurricanes in our country.  Christians are the only creatures on earth that must have hope to survive.

Hope is only as good as what it is attached to.

If you’re holding on to people, bank accounts, accomplishments or success—Good Luck!  People leave, stock markets crash, and life is full of setbacks.

Only God offers real hope.  Hope has real power when it’s anchored in the one true God with real power over death, sin, and despair.  Christ must be the anchor we put our lives deep into.

So what are you holding on to? What is your hope in?  When life’s storms come, what are you locked into?

Anchor your life in Christ today.

Prayer: Dear God, Thank you that You offer us to hold on to You with all the faith we have.  For some Christians, maybe their faith is strong and they’re holding tight…but for other people just learning about God, maybe their faith is tiny, like a mustard seed.

The Bible says that with just a tiny seed of faith, we can be saved through Christ Jesus.  Dear God, with all the faith I have, I put my hope in You.  Life is unsettled at times; I choose to hold on to You through all the ups and downs.  Thank You God, for holding on to me.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
