~Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
One does not need to look far to see the blessings God gives to us every day! Making it a daily habit to recognize these blessings is a good place to start! Looking at nature is a good way to start. There is much of God’s blessings in His creation. He gives us something to look at on a daily basis which should cause our hearts to meditate on His Goodness.
Even though you are stricken with sickness or the storms of life, you are able to say that your Anchor, Jesus Christ, is steady! I found this quote from an unknown source and thought it was so appropriate!
“To realize the worth of the anchor we need to feel the storm.”
I think of our precious Saviour being our anchor. Can you picture this in your mind’s eye? The Lord has given us wonderful “pictures” to describe His character. He holds our salvation — He keeps us stable during the storms of life!
~Hebrews 6:19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
Our Anchor is both sure and stedfast! Noah Webster defines stedfast as:
1. Fast fixed; firm; firmly fixed or established; as the stedfast globe of earth.
2. Constant; firm; resolute; not fickle or wavering.
Our Saviour is our Anchor – it is up to Him to keep our salvation. This same Saviour can surely keep us through our storms!!
Therefore, the more storms you have been through, the more blessings you have to recognize in your life. The storms reveal our Anchor and, as a result, creates a grateful heart!!
