Anchor and Hope in Jesus Christ
Anchor and Hope
A classic Hymn has these lines penned on its chorus:
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll
Fastened to the Rock that cannot move
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love!
In today’s life, we are challenged in so many storms of life. Small or big, these turmoils shakes us and wants to break us physically, emotionally and spiritually. No wonder that we read on the newspapers, on the internet, and social sites about broken families, broken relationships, and worse, broken lives ending in tragic death because of depression, hurt, and bitterness. How can we as Christians face these storms of life? Are we planted enough that our roots gone really deep? Have we anchored our lives that is sure enough not to be swayed or broken?
Today, dear friends, brothers and sisters, let us be encouraged to take hold of the Anchor that is immovable. A sure Rock of foundation. Firm and secure. That Person is our Lord Jesus Christ! Rest in this blessed assurance today. It’s great to have a friend like Him. He wants us to go to him and and ready to help us carry our burden, hurts, and pain. He carries the weight for us as long as we let Him. He gave us Hope even people around us or circumstances says it’s over! The enemy can throw to us enormous storms, discouragements, failures, but hey, we have an Anchor and Hope in Jesus Christ! God and His Word provide the steady anchor and sure foundation. God does not lie, He never change, and He never fails when He said: “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal” (Isaiah 26:3,4).
Thank You Jesus!
