My husband and I mDe a delivery the other day to a shipyard, a place where they build ships. We have made these types of deliveries several times. I am always in awe of the size of some of these vessels. And almost always at the entrance there will be an anchor near their sign. Again I am struck by the size.
The purpose of the anchor is to be let loose from the ship when the Captain wants to slow, stop or hold the ship in place.
It drops to the bottom of the sea and grabs hold of the ground underneath. It keeps the ship from drifting away with the rolling tides.
God tells me that hope is an anchor for my soul. Can you picture that? Having this godly hope, the assurance of things hoped for, is the anchor that keeps my soul from drifting away with the rolling tides of day to day life.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 NASB)
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast, (Hebrews 6:19a NASB)
Are you anchored in Christ?
