I have come to the conclusion that we all need some type of encouragement from time to time and a friend is not always present to give it. We know that Scripture is filled with hope BUT there are days in which we don't know where to look for that nugget that will trigger our joy. Charles F Stanley Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta has been teaching biblical truths for over 45 years and his consistency has gained him great trust within the body of believers. JESUS OUR PERFECT HOPE is his most recent contribution to the family of faith which presents those nuggets of encouragement we all need.
I have been given and I have obtained for review many daily devotionals over the years. I have kept some but did not really read most of what was inside, I don't think that is the case with this devotional.
Even as I read today's words: "An Anchor In The Storm" it was something I needed to be reminded of. As I read the lesson, comments, that followed the Scripture for the day, November 19, it became clear to me how to adjust my thinking. The words of the day answered my prayer.

"Jesus, help me to act in obedience, focus on You, and embrace Your Word so my faith can stay strong. Amen."

The prayer reflects the lesson which supports the Scripture reference which solidifies the confession:
"My hope is in Jesus because He is trustworthy."
This is one of the better devotionals and one that I will keep on my desk, unless it is on my nightstand.
