“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;”
Hebrews 6:19 KJV

Priscilla Jane Owens wrote one of my favorite hymns “We Have an Anchor”.  “We have an anchor that keeps the soul Steadfast and sure while the billows roll, Fastened to the Rock which cannot move, Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love.”  I’m so glad these words are true and that we are anchored in Jesus.

Henry Lake Gilmour wrote another beautiful and heart touching hymn about our precious Saviour “The Haven of Rest”.  “I’ve anchored my soul in the “Haven of Rest,” I’ll sail the wide seas no more; The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep, In Jesus I’m safe evermore.”  Jesus is our Haven of rest.

Have you anchored your soul in Jesus?  You may be saved but do you trust Jesus?  A pastor used this illustration in a sermon.  The pastor said “Do you know we have more faith in a chair than we do in Jesus?  When we sit down in a chair, we don’t wonder if it will hold us, but we don’t always trust Jesus”.

How we must hurt Jesus and break His heart at times.  May God help us to trust Jesus with everything.  Have you answered the call to serve Him?  Jesus gave His life’s blood for you.  What have you given to Him?  I urge you to not only give your heart to Him but also to give your life to Him.
