As Christians, our anchor is in the love of God. An anchor is the tool dropped in the waters that keeps the ship in position from moving astray. In this season, where is your anchor dropped? There may be turbulence on the water’s surface, but there is calmness deep down where the anchor is resting. As God’s child, we should rest & be grounded in the love of Christ regardless of the turbulence of life. It may be rough on the surface, but because of the faith & hope you have, nothing can move you (Romans 8:35-39).
The devil’s intention for you is to question the love of God towards you. Don’t give him any chance. God has great plans for us. He alone has the final blueprint of our lives (Jeremiah 1:5; 29:11). We may have ‘knocks’ but they are to beautify the final plan of God for us & intensify our testimonies. It is not in God’s plan to destroy or harm us in any way.
Our anchor in challenging times – nothing should move us from the love of God:
Know your identity as a child of God & hold onto that belief In spite of the situation, know that you are loved by your Heavenly Father (Romans 8:15-16; Psalm 139:14; Matthew 7:11) Sometimes God allows certain things in our lives to prove & test us (Deuteronomy 8:2-3; Job 1:9) but He is watching & rooting for us, not allowing them to overwhelm us (1 Corinthians 10:13; Psalm 46:1). You can only glory in tribulation if you know Who you are laying on. Tribulation causes us to persevere, our character is built & our expectation is sharpened (Romans 5:3-5; 2 Corinthians 1:3-5). Be of good cheer (Romans 8:28; 1 Thessalonians 5:18)! Nothing is impossible for Him (Matthew 19:26; Isaiah 54:17).
Affirm the fact that God did not allow His Son to die for nothing God sacrificed His best for us for we are precious in His eyes (John 15:13; Romans 5:8). Know where your anchor is dropped; it should be hooked on love. In tribulation, you display love, for Christ is living His life through you (Galatians 2:20).
Know that God’s appointed time is perfect God values building our character through tribulation so as to handle the blessing that He will eventually give us.
Nothing should be able to move you from the Father’s love, if you know how wide, long, high, deep it is (Ephesians 3:18)
