Anchor of Our Soul

For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. Hebrews 6:13-15

 

When God called out Abraham and made him a promise that his descendants would be more numerous the stars or the sand on the shore, it seemed impossible since Abraham was almost 100 years old and childless. However as we need to understand , God does not lie, Gods does not go back on his promises. What God says is going to happen we can guarantee it will happen

 

Now we might not know how its going to happen or have all the details. But remember God is sovereign and in complete control of the world. As Abrham kept being led through barren land, he must of thought “Where am I going”? “What in the world is God doing”? However by faith Abraham obeyed God

 

For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: Hebrews 6:16-17

 

God made a covenant with Abraham, just as Christ made a covenant with us! What is a covenant? Its like a contract, its a promise, its a guarantee that God has made. The only difference is God doesnt break his promises! 

 

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Hebrews 6:18-19

 

How can we be assured that we are saved, because its impossible for God to lie. Those who are saved with Christ, have an anchor for their soul. God is not dangling a carrot in front of you, leading you along

 

If you are Born Again through Christ, you are saved! We have blessed assurance in the blood of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
