According to Merriman dictionary ANCHOR means:
- a heavy device that is attached to a boat or ship by a rope or chain and that is thrown into the water to hold the boat or ship in place
- a person or thing that provides strength and support
Jesus provides us strength and support. He holds us in place, securely grounded in so that when we cannot be moved or be shaken. Jesus is our anchor! He’s the ever present help in times of need. Our hope ought to be on Him and Him alone. The world cannot give you the same fulfillment as Jesus can. False hope is all around us, the quick fix it methods I call Band-Aid methods never last long. Those who stand for nothing will fall for anything – James Madison. If Jesus is not your anchor who are you leaning on?
I am anchored in Christ…securely grounded in Him. He is the one that provides strength, support, holds me in place and keeps me from going off course. In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light and song – many of us know this old classic song.
He is my rock and solid ground. He is the one that holds me together, the one I run to and remain anchored in. Because of Him I’ve been adopted to Kingship and have an inheritance and identify in Him. Though the world may be full of troubles, though storms may come and season’s change I remain anchored in Him. Jesus is my way of life.
Let Jesus be your lifeline, your anchor, your solid ground and your source for everything your need. Nothing can ever take His place no matter what the world says. In the end, only one will remain stand: JESUS.
