When the storms of life come and the weather rolls in we start jostling around in our little boat realizing we are in some serious trouble. Worry and panic are not the best helpers when we are afraid of drowning. Before long we are crying out for help to anyone that will listen, even the darkness as if it could surrender to our pleading.
It is during these times we need to be reminded that Jesus is the only anchor for our soul. I don’t have to walk in your suffering, and you don’t have to walk in mine, to grab a hand and drop that anchor of prayer until the storm passes. The moment that connection happens, in rushes the calming of the seas, the ability to get on top of the crashing waves, and hear the solutions from Him that will relieve the fear of being swept away. His love is the only anchor for our soul.
“We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat which sits in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold, and where Jesus, our forerunner, has gone in before us. He is now and forever our royal Priest like Melchizedek.”
Hebrews 6:19-20 TPT
“One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s get in a boat and go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set sail. Soon Jesus fell asleep. The wind rose, and the fierce wind became a violent squall that threatened to swamp their boat. So the disciples woke Jesus up and said, “Master, Master, we’re sinking! Don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” With great authority Jesus rebuked the howling wind and surging waves, and instantly they stopped and became as smooth as glass. Then Jesus said to them, “Why are you fearful? Have you lost your faith in me?” Shocked and shaken, they said with amazement to one another, “Who is this man who has authority over winds and waves that they obey him?””
Luke 8:22-25 TPT
