Hebrews 4:14-6:20, Ezekiel 35-38

Hebrews 6:18-19 – We, who have fled for refuge, might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul.

Lord God, in this world where everything changes as soon as I get it figured out, where my phone or my computer is constantly getting updated, and it still doesn’t work quite right. In this world, things are constantly in flux and on the move, where families rarely stay in one place, in one house, in one city, for their whole life or career, and there is hardly one home in which the family grows up and stays.  In this world, where everything is constantly changing, there is one place, Lord, and one Person, Jesus, where I can find an anchor for my soul and an anchor for my life.  You are that person, Jesus. Your Word is that place, Lord God.  And I am thankful for you and for the anchor and stability that you give me. You are sure and certain.  Your Word is constant and true.  Your love is faithful and new every morning.  Lord, thank you for this certainty, for this sure and certain anchor for my soul.  Yes, thank you for this anchor for my whole life.  You and your Word keep me grounded and close to my eternal home for my entire life. Thank you, Lord God.  Amen.
