The Anchor That Holds Firm

Many up and down the Eastern coast of the US have suffered through this Hurricane and the suffering of the Pandemic, even when we suffer the pain of death we must remember God is with us. He understands the pain we go through.

The writer Peter tells us to put everything in God’s hands in order to be exalted, that is to say, in order to know what God has in store for us. Because we are his children he cares for us.

1 Peter 5:6-8 “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

God tells us in Isaiah 45:6-7 “That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.” That he is the all mighty and things happen because of him. The writer of Hebrews tells us that God is always with us. Heb.13:5-6.

When Paul was writing to the Romans he said. He was persuaded that nothing could stand between God and his servant .Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded, that neither death, or life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

In Shakespeare’s play “As You Like It”, act two, scene seven, he says all the world is a stage and all the men and women merely players. He goes on to tell about the different stages of life and the different walks of life. No matter how one chooses to describe the stages of life and its challenges we must remember that God is our Anchor and He will look after His children.
