would you agree that one plus GOD equals a majority? put GOD on my side and i’ll take on the world – me and GOD. so i never have to fear.
hebrews 6.18-19 (gnt) says, we who have found safety with HIM are greatly encouraged to hold on firmly to the hope placed before us. we have this hope as an anchor for our lives.
notice the word “anchor.” you know what anchors do, they keep you from drifting. but back in olden days when they had these giant sailing ships they also had storm anchors that even when they’re out in the middle of the sea in the middle of a storm they would drop these anchors that would steady the boat.
you need something in your life when you’re going through the crisis, the tragedy, the experience that shakes you up, the storm in life when some road wind catches you off guard and you need something to stabilize your life. what are you going to put your trust in then? some little trite saying from a self-help book. that’s not going to help you very much. you need a hope that’s deep and strong and lasting. and JESUS says the anchor for our souls is when we put our hope in HIM and we’re not blown away.
have you ever read the last chapter of a novel to relieve your suspense before you finished it? “he gets the girl… the good guys win.” i have read the last chapter of this book, the bible. in fact i’ve read the last book. we win! we lose a few battles here and there but ultimately we win. his protection relieves my fears. GOD has promised to help you.
i need to never be worried.
just a thought from the front porch…
