What does it mean to hope in God during an uncertain and frightening season?

13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” 15 And thus Abraham,[b] having patiently waited, obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. 17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 6:13-20

    I loved this format! It was so refreshing to see your face and hear your voice! Thank you for this encouragement. I really felt what you said about us never losing our salvation, but each day we have a choice whether or not we hope in Jesus. I am dropping my anchor today, in the midst of uncertainty. He is my steadfast. Thank you, Beth!

    I hope you are doing well, Sister.

    Love, Alex G.

  2. Love this, Beth. I grew up singing an old hymn “My Anchor Holds” and this reminded me of it. Praise God that he is our sure and steadfast anchor, who will return for us some day!! It is good to see your face.

    Love to all the Brooms,

  3. Loved this message and definitely enjoyed the video format so we could see and hear you at a time we don’t get to do that each Sunday. The image of an anchor has been deeply rooted in the ways the Lord has encouraged and steadied me in the last 18 months, starting even before losing mom with the challenging months surrounding my company’s acquisition. But I hadn’t thought about the choice we make to drop our anchor daily by choosing to hope in him. As I had previously reflected on it, the anchor was already there holding firm and steadfast. I had skipped the step of dropping it. 🙂 So I’m grateful that your video gives me an added layer related to the anchor to chew on and process.

    Thanks for seeking to be an encouragement!
