We Have Hope ~ Sunday Devotion
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19 (NIV)
Is your faith the anchor for your fitness?
This hope is life in Christ, the promises of God and His salvation.
It’s easy to say that my hope is in Christ. He is my anchor. He is my Savior, and I serve Him. However, if we take a step back and look at all of the areas of our lives, will we see that each one is set firmly on our faith with Christ as the anchor?
For a long time, my pursuit of health was not anchored to my faith. Maybe other areas of my life were, I was a Christian after all, but my fitness was one area I didn’t trust Him with. When it came to that, I ventured into the sea of diets, gimmicks, and quick fixes. For some reason, drifting from one diet to the next seemed better than trusting the Lord with this area of my life.
I placed my hope in the promises of people who didn’t even know me and my body. Instead of placing my hope and trust in the One who created me, I looked to others to whom I didn’t even matter. I was simply another customer buying their overpriced false promise for a thinner body.
Now, I have hope in Christ in this area of my life. He is the anchor for my fitness, and He can be yours too. He’s so much more interested in you and all that matters to you than anyone else. You’re not just a number or another dollar to Him. You are loved. You matter.

Diving into God’s Word and learning how to apply it to my fitness is how I learned to anchor this area of my life to Him. Use these tools so that you too can have hope in Christ and be firm and secure in His love and care for you.
