It’s what God supplies.

He tells us it’s an anchor. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19.

Some days I just need to hear that—don’t you? To know that in the midst of our bad day, bad news, raging hormones, feelings of isolation, sickness…whatever the news for the day that we didn’t want or expect, we have hope.

It anchors us.

It’s solid.


Psalm 40 tells us that not only does God hear us when we call, but He pulls us out of the shaky place we are and sets our feet on a rock—a solid place to stand.

He is that rock. And he holds us firm. It is where our hope comes from.

God has us in His hand. He loves us. Everything around us is under His control—we don’t have to sweat it, just leave it at His feet and let Him wrap His arms around us. In His very embrace, we find rest. Peace. Hope.

So when the day is raging around you, let Him anchor you.

Hold to His hope and be secure in Him.
