the curtain, where Jesus, Who went before us, has entered on our behalf.
Read Hebrews 6:16-20
When the waves and storms and challenges of our lives seem to want to swamp us, we need look no further than to the One Who has promised to never leave us or forsake us as long as we seek Him and His will in our lives.
The disciples learned to trust in the promises of Jesus even after He was killed. They thought the ministry that He had promised had come to an untimely end. They returned to their former lives, supposedly defeated and without a future.
But the Lord had promised to return and return He did. He fulfilled all that He had promised and more. What the apostles received was far beyond their greatest dreams.
We see our dreams shattered, our families fractured and disease prevail. We look up to the Lord and cry out in pain, "Where are You? Why have You forgotten us?" We look out around and feel deserted. We can't see or feel Him
That is when we need to hold tightly to the anchor that is Jesus. We can't see the anchor beneath the waves but we know it is there. Our ship is held firm by what we can't see. We hope in the solid anchor that steadies us in the storm.
We can't see the causes of the storm that is raging around us, nor can we see the battle between the enemy of our soul
and the Savior of our soul. Whether the causes are self imposed or the enemy is, like Job, taunting and tempting us, we know that our Anchor will not allow us to drift alone. He is our rudder and our anchor throughout the storm. He has
paid too high a price to let us be destroyed by the storms that buffet us.
Hold fast to that anchor and watch for the calming of the crashing waves around your life. They may end suddenly or they may slowly dissipate like a hurricane. But our Redeemer has promised a harbor of safety and a City of Refuge. And we know, without doubt, God cannot lie like man can lie. (verse 18)
