We Have an Anchor Part 4: God, Our Anchor

     For my fourth and final article in this series, I will be summing up what was talked about in these previous articles. If you haven't been able to read the previous articles, I'd like to encourage you all to go back and do so. 

     Hebrews 6:19 says, "We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain." I'm sure you're wondering, "What do the previous articles have to do with the fact that God is our anchor?" Well, after studying, we know that God, our anchor, is the most powerful being, who always keeps His promises, and who never lies. Our Anchor is perfect, and wonderful, and powerful. We can believe and have faith that God will keep His promises always. Our Anchor is God, who created everything. Isn't that wonderful? But what does that mean? What does it mean that God is our anchor? Well, I'll explain that.  

     Have y'all ever been in a boat? I have, but I was like, two years old, so I don't remember it. But assuming you know how boats and water work, you'll know that water isn't like land. No matter how heavy of a boat you have, no matter how sturdy, the water can still move under it, and move the boat without even noticing. If a boat doesn't have an anchor, then it's pretty useless because you'll end up somewhere where you didn't even intend on ending up. That's why we need an anchor. We need a good, strong anchor so we don't drift from the Word of God, and so that we don't have to worry about getting off track as long as we have God in our lives. He is our Anchor, and without Him we would drift so far from where we intended, and we wouldn't even realize it.  

     Today I would like to encourage all of you guys to always remember Who our Anchor is, and just how powerful He is, and to encourage you all to never drift away from what the Bible teaches.
