“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” – Hebrews 6:19
Those who are steadfast and hold firmly to the Lord are blessed because of His faithfulness and their obedience. “For the call themselves after the holy city, and anchor themselves upon the God of Israel; The Lord of hosts is His name.” (Isaiah 48:2) With our hope and trust firmly secured in Jesus Christ, we can weather any of life’s storms.
Other false religions claim to offer hope akin to ours, but those quickly fade in comparison to Him, our Rock. “For their rock is not like our Rock, as even our enemies concede.” (Deuteronomy 32:31) “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides You; there is no Rock like our God.” (1 Samuel 2:20 “For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?” (2 Samuel 22:32)
Even when the going gets rough, remember that keeping Christ as the foundation of our faith is the most important aspect of our walk with God. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)
