Where are you Anchored?
Before meeting Christ, I was Anchored in the rough seas of sin.
This Anchor, pulled me down, as the waters of sin rose, filling my heart and mind.
My thoughts and actions, were no longer my own. I was controlled by the carnel nature of man.
Prideful, Pitiful, and Powerless, my addictions, (the true loves of my life), were in control.
BOOZE, BROADS AND TOBACCO. (An unholy trinity).
I was lost in the Swift currents of destruction. Soon to drown and die.
Then a true Miracle ocured, I recognized the knocking at my heart, to be Jesus.
It wasn’t the first time I felt His gentle nudge.
No, as the Lord had said to Abram, come out from among them. I finally obeyed and walked with the Lord to a new land.
I asked Jesus, into my life. I begged for and received forgiveness, I became blameless and accepted in the beloved.
My Anchor no longer held me down, it now lifted me to the heavens.
The weight of sin and death, was gone. I could see, hear, think and love, both in Spirit and Truth.
I hungered and thirst for more. For the Righteousness, Peace and Joy, of the Holy Ghost.
I found it.
Life wasn’t perfect, troubles still surrounded me, dogged me, at times tempted me. But…
I WAS ABLE TO OVERCOME, by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of my Testimony.
I submitted myself to God, and resisted the devil, and he fled.
There are two Truths to live by and trust.
1: IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE.
2: FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.“
Hebrews 6:18-20 (KJV)
“That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
We can now, and should enter into that Holy Place, we will find Mercy and Grace in our times of need.
