We Have an Anchor
Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,
When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
When the strong tides lift and the cables strain,
Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love.
(Excerpt from hymn, We Have an Anchor, by Priscilla J. Owens and William J. Kirkpatrick)
We Have an Anchor in These Dark Days!
More and more it seems that everywhere you look, upheaval and strife are on the rise. Anger and fear war with each other for dominance in the media, and cultural norms grow more twisted and extreme by the day. It would be easy to think that the whole world has gone mad and to worry that the maelstrom will sweep you up, too. How perfect then is the timing of the Holy Spirit to remind us that we have an anchor!
“When the devil gets you down, the temptation is to want to give up and say, ‘Just take me home, Lord.’”
Martha Kilpatrick, We Have an Anchor
We Have an Anchor is the answer to the daily onslaught of the enemy, whose only aim is to tempt us into unbelief by keeping our eyes on the darkness and our ears tuned to the stranger’s voice. But as Martha so passionately points out, we are not loose leaves tossed to and fro with every strong wind. “We have an anchor that keeps the soul…” And we need to know what that anchor is. Have you figured it out yet? The answer is not as obvious as you might think and may surprise you!
