Our Anchor Holds

There are so many things going on in this day that seem confusing and troubling to me. I have to admit that I don’t understand the protests, the mixed signals about social distancing, the condemnation toward gatherings of some groups while praising of other large groups that gather, etc. We are told that the coronavirus spreads one way, and then they come back and say that this is inaccurate. I am so confused about all of these things. Yet some things are crystal clear to me: this world is full of evil, God is good, Jesus is coming back, and my mission is the same.

My God is a solid rock, a refuge in times of trouble. He is my salvation and hope; therefore, I will not fear but live my life by faith and keep on keeping on for Him. In the midst of sickness, He is my healer. In the storm, He is my calmness. In the midst of evil, He is my standard of righteousness, and I give my vengeance to the Lord. Friend, please don’t let the noise of this world drown out the voice of hope from Christ. Don’t let the scenes of rioting and violence distract you from seeing the goodness and protection of God. Allow your faith to be the anchor that holds you steadfast in His love, ministry, and mission. No matter what you see, hear, or feel, God is the same today as He was yesterday. Look at this wonderful verse:

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me”  (Hebrews 13:5-6). 
Remember: "faith over fear!"
