The hope that lies before us // 05-12-23

“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.” Hebrews 6:18-19 NLT

In a world of uncertainty and confusion where nothing feels very stable anymore and so
many people are losing hope, what we need is something strong and trustworthy that can anchor us. That hope that lies before us is the hope of salvation bought for us by Jesus, it’s the hope that His sacrifice on a cross really did pay for all the wrong in my life and your life that has kept us separated from God. It’s the hope that through Him I am forgiven and made right
in the eyes of God, saved from condemnation and made alive to experience life in all its
fulness. It’s the hope that I now have an eternity to look forward to with Him free from pain and suffering and death. Without Jesus there is no hope but with Him we can look forward with great expectation! Lord, thank You for Your promise, for the confident hope that I can have in You. May that hope fuel my faith today and stir my heart to action as I keep my eyes on You. Amen 👆🏼😊
