DEVO 07.29.22


"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)


- Do you need hope this morning?

- The Greek definition of hope means "to be intensely expectant, to be confidently looking forward to something you fully expect to happen."

- What are your expectations and what are they anchored in?

- This verse says that "this hope is an anchor for our souls."

- An anchor is something that holds an object firmly in place.

- An anchor keeps you from drifting.

- Hope can keep our soul - which is made up of our mind, will, emotions - at rest through the storms of life.

- When the waves are crashing against you, and you're in the middle of the storm, the anchor of hope keeps you at rest.

- That hope keeps you from drifting off into troubled waters.

- The greatest battle you will face is the battle in your mind.

- Battles are won and lost in your mind.

- If the enemy of your soul (Satan) can get you discouraged then he can begin to win the battle.

- Have you prayed and believed God for something?

- Maybe its your health.

- Maybe its a relationship.

- Maybe its your finances.

- Maybe its for a friend or loved one to come to know Jesus Christ.

- Has your head starts telling you there's no way this is going to happen?

- Hope is the expectation that will anchor your soul and straighten up your thinking.

- Hope will keep you at rest, firm and steady, when your mind is being bombarded by thoughts of giving up.

- Our Hope is in the Lord, the Creator and sustainer of ALL things!

- Jeremiah 17:7 says, “blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence.

- Remember all those times God answered your prayers and performed miracles in your life.

- Remembering those impossible situations He brought you out of will cause hope to rise up on the inside of you and anchor your soul!

- You have to make your mind, will, emotions line-up with what the Word of God says.

- You have to tell your soul to have hope, to not give up, and to trust God!

- He is your Healer.

- He is your Redeemer.

- He is your Restorer.

- He is you Life Giver!

- He is your HOPE!

- Thank God this morning that we have the "giver of hope" on the inside of us.

- As long as you have hope in God, you have an anchor for your soul.

- Have a great Weekend!
