What is the source of your strength, and where you place your hope? In other words, what anchors you in this life? From a jet ski to the largest container vessel, without an anchor to secure the boat position when necessary, the passengers, crew, and cargo of any size ship are at risk.
Faith in God grants you access to Him through prayer and worship, and lets you tether your life to something much more meaningful than what this world has to offer.
Hebrews 10:23 says, “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”
A life lived in Jesus doesn’t guarantee smooth sailing, but you can set sail confidently knowing you will rise victorious from the mighty waves when God is your captain. Set free your burdens by offering them to Jesus in prayer, focusing instead on growing your faith through studying the Bible and serving others. God commands his fleet to do more than toss about in the wind—He has a far greater purpose and a plan for you.
God asks us to invite others along on the incredible voyage of faith. Spread the Good News of Jesus’s love for us, and the future available to those who believe in Him. Our lives are sometimes stormy and uncertain, but we can hold unswervingly to our faith, and to a God who promises to be faithful.
