ANCHOR IN THE STORM
Hebrews 6:19-20 (19) – We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. (NIV)
Let’s look at the story of Job, who was very wealthy. There came a time when the devil tempted him so much that he lost everything. In fact, at one point, Job’s wife advised him to curse God and die, yet this man held on to God and got multiple-fold restoration. In the same way, I decree in the name of Jesus that your trial and ridicule will end with praise.
Another example can be found in Daniel 3, where Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow to an idol and were thrown into the fire. Nonetheless, these men hung their anchor on the Lord and were saved. Hear this! As you make heaven your source, you shall prevail over any form of affliction, in Jesus’ name.
Beloved, whatever situation has overwhelmed you, know that the trying times are for a purpose. Gold never becomes pure until it passes through the fire. This means that your current experience is refining you for a glorious future. Hold on and refuse to give in to temptations; instead, let Christ be your anchor that clings to the solid rock (God). As seen in our Bible reading, if you surrender and trust in Jesus, He will make you strong, secure, and steady. He will never let you down!
Hymn: Will Your Anchor Hold — Priscilla J. Owens (1882)
1. Father, I release my heart and life to you. Please be my anchor in the good and trying periods.
2. Lord Jesus, please turn my trials into triumphs (mention).
1. Evil arrow of sudden sickness and sorrow, go back to your senders!
2. Oppression of darkness in my life, home, and community, scatter!
3. Father, my hope is in You. Please arise for my sake tonight. Tell God your desires!
