A Strong Anchor

Stories have been told about the only thing that saved the lives of the people aboard a ship in a storm was a strong anchor. But, there are also stories of those who perished when their anchor did not hold.

Luke and the Apostle Paul were aboard a ship that was tossed by a raging storm. Luke writes in Acts 27:29, about the actions of the crew, "Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight."

It is written, "The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knows them who trust Him." (Nahum 1:7)

What, or who, are you depending on to hold you in your storm? Is it God? Or, is it a particular person? How about money?

If you are a Christian, God is your anchor and salvation can be found in no other. Jesus said, "I do not pray that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from evil." (John 17:15) This is a promise that God will be our anchor in the storm and that He will keep us in His care.

Ray Boltz is one of my favorite artists, and "The Anchor Holds," is one of my favorite songs by him. It is a great message for those who are in the midst of a storm in their life. If you have never heard this song I encourage you to find a copy and take a listen.

In times of fair weather we have comfort of knowing our anchor is there. But, in the storm, our faith is tested and we must continue to know that our anchor is still there. Sometimes, to remember the strength of our anchor, we need to feel the strength of the storm.
