Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Take Refuge in the LORD

August 25th, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK -In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is to take refuge in the Lord.

Psalm 34:8 invites us to “taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”

Throughout the Bible, we can see references to God as the protector and provider of our soul.

Proverbs 18:10 describes God as a strong tower. The righteous run to it and are safe.

According to Hebrews 6:19, we have an anchor for our soul, firm and secure, because of our hope in Jesus.

And Jesus described Himself as “the good shepherd, who laid down His life for the sheep.”

In God’s grace, we find the goodness of God and a secure place for our soul.

Taking Refuge in the LORD is a vital step to a Radiant Faith that makes a difference in our world.

Word of Encouragement-Anchor

June 16th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Word of Encouragement is “Anchor.”

An anchor is a device that holds a ship in place. It is especially useful during a storm, to give it stability.

During the writing of the New Testament, an anchor became a symbol of hope for believers.

Hebrews 6:19 says, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”  Our hope, security, and strength come from having a relationship with Jesus, where we follow Him as Savior and Lord.

God’s love is strong and secure. His promises are true and trustworthy. We can rely on His love and trust His Word. Then, when the storms of life bring turbulence into our world, the grace of God will be the firm foundation that keeps hope in view.

Find encouragement in knowing Jesus as the anchor for our soul in the Year of Endurance.
