“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 6:19-20

Security

I’ve spent a lot of my life as a worrier. I’ve worried about what people think, what might happen, what has happened, what I’ve done, what others have done, and the like. I know that it is sinful and even that makes me worry. But today I felt in my spirit, enough is enough. It’s time to live in security. It’s time to step out in the fullness that God has for me.

Secure in the Father’s love for me. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Secure in His provision for me. “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

Secure in His protection for me. But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one” (2 Thessalonians 3:3).

Secure in His deliverance for me. “The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all” (Psalm 34:19).

Secure in His forgiveness for me. “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:8-9).

Several years ago our ladies did a Beth Moore study on the Tabernacle. I often remember her tying a large rope around her waist and the other end was tied to the “anchor” within the Holy of Holies. That anchor is Jesus. He holds me within the veil. Oh, how that makes my heart sing.

Cornerstone

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name

Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior’s love
Through the storm
He is Lord
Lord of all

When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
My anchor holds within the veil

“Dear Jesus, thank You that You are my anchor. You make me secure. Please forgive me for those times I’ve worried. Continue Your work in me. In Your name I pray, Amen.”

    Yes! When is our “concern” actually the sin of worry! Amen! Thank you for the wonderful scriptures also!
