"We have this anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus,
who went before us, has entered on our behalf."

Hebrews 6:19a

Hold Onto the Rope Tightly

God is always with you. I'm sure you have heard Him referred to as the Anchor. Just as a ship holds a ship steadfast, so will Jesus hold you firmly in times of trouble. Because of Jesus, you can believe all He promises. He will never leave you. When you are His child, you can pray to Him and know He hears your prayers. Expect Him to care for you and trust in His Great love for you. Hold onto Jesus and know that when you belong to Him, He will never let you go.

We can have hope that what God says in His Word is true. We can believe Him because God cannot lie! He has given us the Bible so we can learn about Him and about His Son, Jesus. We can be sure that God is with us all the time, and He is never surprised. He can do anything by His mighty power. We can be sure He is always the same and will never change. God is perfect. His love is perfect. When we give our hearts to God, it is Jesus that holds onto us forever!

Joshua Jackrabbit is holding tightly to the rope. He is trusting his friend, Cami Cub, to pull him up where he will be safe. He knows Cami loves him and cares for him. Cami will not let go of the rope because she loves Joshua. Joshua will not let go of the rope because he trusts Cami to keep him safe.

Jesus will not let go of us because He loves us. We should trust in His love for us and not let go of His promises. When we obey God's commands we are holding onto Him. God gives many blessings to His children when they agree with Him and decide to do things His way. A blessing is something good that happens to you. Can you think of any blessings God has given to you when you have done what God says is right?
