Each day we awaken within the mist of the unknown. Sometimes we do so with fear and anxiety; but in our culture, we generally feel safe and prepared for our daily routines as we look forward to the small joys that will unfold. We are not concerned about unexpected events. When we leave for work or school or the grocery store, we expect to return home safely, perhaps tired, but well and in one piece.
However, when the winds of adversity rise and the seas turn rough (as they are now), we need stability. We need an anchor. The New Testament book of Hebrews reassures believers that in their time of need not only is God’s present but He is their source of confidence. He holds their future in His Sovereign hands……
“….Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls…” (Hebrews 6:18-19)
