Hope As An Anchor
Pastor Fredi Vega
This confidence is like a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain of heaven into God's inner sanctuary.
Four reasons that we can have hope as an anchor of the soul...
#1.) Holy Spirit’s Presence
#2.) Obstacles Present Opportunities
#3.) Prayer Connects Us with God
#4.) Expected Future
2 Cor. 4:8-9, 17-18 says...(NLT)
We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit.
We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going…
For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever!
So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen.
For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.
And forever is a long, long time.
“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the presence behind the veil.”
