A while ago I was opportune to watch a ship being moored, the ship swayed to and fro up until the anchor was set in place after which there came that calmness associated with a ship well anchored.
As I observed the entire process, I couldn’t but ponder on how our lives could benefit from the calmness, stability and confidence that would come from a soul anchored on the Solid Rock which is Christ.
While staring at that ship the Spirit dropped a song in my spirit –
“Tis’ my lot to lean upon the Rock
To lay my strength on that which never fails.
I’ll always crave for my Anchor that’s so sure
My Solid Rock, which makes me bold”
Having Christ as our sure anchor insulates us from the instability that comes naturally with the world and helps us keep our focus on what truly matters in our lives.
Some keys to having a secure connection to our Solid Rock:
“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 6: 19,20).
Beloved, whatever you do, make sure that you are hooked up to the greatest anchor
