"Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."
God has gone through great lengths to be clear about his hope for us. This verse states this in a very intense way. Spend a lot of time reading this verse over and over and think about what it means to you. If you were to write to God in response to this verse, would you speak to him with the same conviction and dedication in acceptance of his hope? Would your thankfulness match the writers enthusiasm?
Prayer: Pray that every day we get closer to understanding and accepting God's great hope for us and that it would transform the way we view and live our life on a daily basis.
