S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
The author of Hebrews speaks to the matters of our soul. He says “We Have This Hope” for our soul. The hope which we “Followers Of Jesus” posses is a hope that is firm and secure. In other words, it’s reliable, and it will not fail us in the most trying of times.
Often, King David lamented by saying, “Why are you so downcast, oh my soul? Put Your hope in God!” I believe our souls envelop the issues of the mind. So often the battle in our lives is for our mind and our thought patterns. If we’re not careful, thoughts can creep in our mind that are deceptive and unruly and have no origination in heaven. These thoughts, if not cast down, become detrimental to our emotional health. You’ve perhaps heard the line, “His thoughts were racing!” That line is not usually used to describe the victory a person was about to have, instead “his thoughts were racing” is used to say he was worried about what might happen after the poor choice he had made. But Jesus, because of His sacrifice on the cross and subsequent resurrection from the grave, has paid the price for ALL of our poor choices! So right now, early this AM, before your thoughts begin to race, remember that you and I believe in Jesus our Lord and because we do “We Have This Hope!”
Thank You this AM for this HOPE that I have because of You! Thank You that this HOPE is so reliable I can corral my thoughts again today. Amen
