WHO IS YOUR ANCHOR?
Ships in a harbor are often times anchored so they do not float away. The anchor is made of iron or some heavy metal and securely keeps the boat from drifting away.
In life who keeps you anchored? Is it something temporal or is Jesus your anchor? Do you occasionally "drift off course" and find yourself doing things or saying things that you know in your heart are just not right?
Hebrews 6:19-20 (NIV) says 'We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.'
Are you firmly and securely letting Jesus anchor you? Is something else "weighing" you down? Now is the time to cast off things you know will drag you off course. What is better, to be adrift in the "seas of sin" and uncertainty or to let Christ hold you in place?
PRAYER: Today Lord I choose to let you hold me firmly in place. When the seas of life try to wash me out into rough waves Lord I choose to hang on to you. In Jesus' name.Amen.
