Holding on to what God Has Promised
“…We who have fled to him for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before us. Now we have this hope as a sure fast anchor of the soul…”(Hebrews 6:18-19).
A good sea captain knows he must drop the anchor when he wants his boat to stay steady, anchored in a certain place. We must throw out our anchor and to stay where God has placed us.
When things get tough, like Hebrews 6:18-19 says, we take refuge in Him. We run to Him for strength and encouragement so we can stabilize and stay steady when things get tough. When we run to Him, He teaches us how to remain steadfast. As we obey His instructions, He strengthens and encourages us by His Spirit. Take refuge in the Lord and you will be steadfast, unmovable, and anchored as you hold on and wait for what He has promised you.
