Strong encouragement and a sure refuge.
It’s not flowery or poetic or Instagram worthy, but these truths have been, and continue to be, deep wells of safety and, more importantly hope.
When relationships are unsure, He is certain.
When financial plans plummet, His refuge will not fail.
When anger, hurt, or sadness envelopes on all sides, the anchor of the Lord will hold steady.
Regardless of what I do, or don’t do, the ways I live out love, or the times I love myself more than others, nothing will change the hope I have in Jesus.
See, my God cannot lie.
And He has promised safety for me.
Not a safety within this physical realm, though He often provides exactly that, but a safe harbor for my heart forever.
There is no “alone” with the Lord.
There is no “I’m too far gone”.
He is sure.
He is certain.
His anchor for every soul entrusted to Him will hold firm and secure no matter the storm!
Grab your Bible, a journal and pen,
and open your heart to bask in the presence of the Almighty!
1) Read through Hebrews 6:13-20 out loud today twice. Slowly. Linger over that verse (or verses) that stick out to you, slowing and listening as God’s Spirit speaks to your heart! Choose 1 or 2 to write out on notecards and post them around your house – then post a picture of your reminder cards on Instagram or on our Facebook Community Page. Take the weekend to memorize these and forever hide them in your heart!
2) We are so excited to share this hand-crafted Spotify playlist! We created it as we prayed over *you*. Put this playlist on repeat this weekend and be reminded of the rich truths God has shown you this week in Pause 3!
For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater to swear by, he swore by himself: 14 I will indeed bless you, and I will greatly multiply you. 15 And so, after waiting patiently, Abraham obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and for them a confirming oath ends every dispute. 17 Because God wanted to show his unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. 20 Jesus has entered there on our behalf as a forerunner, because he has become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Embracing God’s fullness in our lives is rooted in scripture and memorizing His word is vital to our continued growth and depth with Jesus. Tap and hold from your mobile device to download this week’s verse and make it your phone’s lockscreen!
