God Is My Anchor T-Shirt
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and entering into that which is within the veil; Hebrews 6:19
Picture what an anchor is and what it does. It prevents a ship or boat from drifting due to wind or current. An anchor serves to remind us of a ship secured in a storm or a rowboat fortified against tide drift. In the words of Priscilla Jane Owens in her hymn Will Your Anchor Hold:
“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 us steady and secure in any storm. God is our anchor. Jesus is the anchor that secures our place in eternity.
Faith in God and in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, is the main anchor we must have in our lives to keep us anchored during times of social turbulence and wickedness that seem to be everywhere today. If we cling to anything else in this life, we will become adrift.
Our faith in Jesus Christ keeps us from becoming “like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind” (James 1:6). As believers, we have “hope as an anchor” that is safe and secure because it is anchored to God’s steadfast Word and God’s everlasting, dependable character. He is faithful, and His promises are true.
Trust in Jesus as the anchor for your soul!
