AN ANCHOR OF YOUR SOUL

David Nix

Tuesday, 1/15/2013

"I am the Lord Jesus, your Messiah and tender shepherd and I give unto you words that are to be placed within the Words of the Latter Rain and they are words of hope, love and power. There is great power in walking in obedience and righteousness for my light shall fill those who walk in all of my ways for I am nigh unto the man who seeks to please me. Days of trial shall come upon all nations and people of the earth and in those days of testing only those with the steadfast hope of my salvation shall stand. Do you not see why I have given you so many words about surrender, obedience and righteousness? Hope grows in the obedient heart and in the pure heart that stands fast in holiness. You must hope in my salvation to stand when dark days are upon you, but how can you hope if you do not believe? Belief grows in obedience and obedience gives power unto understanding. See the power of the words of truth written in Hebrews 6:17-19  ‘Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:  (18)  That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:  (19)  Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil.’ The hope spoken of in these verses is built upon the absoluteness of our promises. You must know that our Word is sure and you must believe in my spiritual inheritance and in my covenant blessings. Hope is to be your anchor, but hope must be in me and in my Father for hope in anything that is not eternal shall not stand. Men place their hope in their own wisdom and power or in the wisdom and power of others. It is good to love and it is good to trust, but men often fail when hard times come so your anchor of hope must rest in me and in my Father. You must hope in my faithfulness and in the surety of my Word.

 

Read the words of Psalm 89:1-8 and see that there is none upon the earth that shall be an anchor of hope unto you as my Father and I. Psalms 89:1-8  ‘I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever: with my mouth will I make known your faithfulness to all generations.  (2)  For I have said, Mercy shall be built up forever: your faithfulness shall you establish in the very heavens.  (3)  I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, (4) Your seed will I establish forever, and build up your throne to all generations. Selah.  (5)  And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord: your faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.  (6)  For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord?  (7)  God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.  (8)  O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto you, or to your faithfulness round about you?’ We are your sure defense and your strong tower for we are everlasting strength and eternal power and in our light and in our presence you can have hope that will not waver.

 

Hope will grow in surrender and in trust. Do not fear to give me your life for in my hands you are safe and you shall know peace. All men are in my hand even if they walk through life in ignorance, but the power of hope is in the power of knowing. When a man knows that all blessings are from my hands, when he knows that all life is held in the hands of my Father, then he will know that his life and all life upon the earth is within our control. I use the word control for in this you find the barrier unto hope. Most do not want to relinquish control for men feel helpless and vulnerable when they have no control. In this you also see the power of our hedge of light for with our hedge of light we place a man where we desire and we keep him within the place of our desire until we decide to let him go. Why must you maintain control of your life when all life is held in the hands of the Great I AM? All power is given unto me and I have control over the lives of men for man was created by my hand. If all is within our hands how much do you truly control? In complete surrender and in absolute obedience you shall find freedom. Hope will not come without surrender for in all that you seek to control you must rely upon your own strength to maintain. If you seek to fight your own battles then you must maintain the ability and strength to do so. What man is stronger than one who realizes that his power is nothing compared to mine and one who rests in the helplessness of knowing that he is dust before me?  Men never want to be helpless, but those surrendered unto me are not helpless, for their hope is in me and I am their help and salvation. The power of helplessness is not found in weakness, it is found in knowing that you are weak and that I am strong.

 

What man can overcome all things without me? I do not desire you to be helpless, for helpless men lose hope, I desire you to rely upon me for all things. Do you not see my beloved, that in surrender you go from helplessness unto strength? There is no greater hope than that found in complete surrender. In me you have hope, in me you have all power and the strength to do all things. Let hope be an anchor of your soul, but do not hope in your own strength and power, hope in the strength and power found in me. When you are completely mine, you are truly free and you are truly in control of all adversity and trials. Control and power are found in complete surrender, for when you give me dominion of all things, my dominion gives you power over all things. Hope in my absolute faithfulness and in my absolute power and love. My love and my will are perfect and I am ever with you. Find rest in me and find perfect peace in surrender for I am your hope and I am your salvation. Look unto the words of hope found in Psalms 35:1-9, ‘Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.  (2)  Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.  (3)  Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am your salvation.  (4)  Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.  (5)  Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them.  (6)  Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord persecute them.  (7)  For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have searched out for my soul.  (8)  Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.  (9) And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation.’ I am your strong defense and I am your hope and your salvation. Let your hope in me be as an anchor unto your soul.”
