Assurance

Last night I meditated on the word “assurance” from Colossians 2:2.  Assurance is that anchor of truth deeply imbedded in your heart that cannot be shaken by any circumstances.

Hebrews 6:18 says, “…we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.”  Verse 19 says, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast…”  Our mind, will, and emotions are anchored by truth.

Consolation in the Greek is paraklesis.  Strong’s says: the paraklete is a strengthening presence, one who upholds those appealing for assistance.  We know the Paraklete who is the Holy Spirit.
