Sunday we sang “Cornerstone” by Hillsong. To say that the song spoke to me is a understatement. My mind did not fully comprehend the words I was singing, but my spirit sure did.
Over the week I have continually meditated on what it means to say “My anchor holds within the veil”. Who or what is my anchor? ……. Well the Lord of course! But really is He, or do I just really really hope he is. After so much “life” has happened I can say HE IS. Yes there are moments that I have to say “remember who your anchor is”.
So I know who my anchor is, but what is my anchor. What is my description of “anchor”? Well the definition is :something to hold another thing securely. Synonyms are: comfort, defense, fastener, foothold, grip, hold, hook, mainstay, pillar, protection, safeguard, security, stay, support. Not only does this sound true, it feels true.
I have a complete understanding of “anchor” now, but what does it mean for that anchor not just simple hold me, but to “hold me within the veil”. I could go on and on about the veil, but that will be the subject of its own on a different day.
The veil is the place of the holy of holies. Guess what, I get to enter into it! I did some thing that gave me that privilege. I ask Jesus to be Lord of my life, my whole life. He took my life and gave me his eternal life and by grace, his grace, I am held in the holy of holies.
I’m not holding my anchor, my anchor is holding me. He is not holding me over a cliff either. He is holding me in the most sacred place where his glory shines all around me. He is holding me in a place where the impossible is possible. He holds me in a place that the world only dreams exists.
Hebrews 6, what a great chapter. I read it in every translation I could. As you read it just builds and builds. Hebrews 6:19 “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;”……………..I have not just been singing a song that has a great tune and feel good words. My spirit has been singing the promise of the Lord.
