Then, fearing lest we should run aground on the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern, and prayed for day to come. (Acts 27:29)
There will always be storms in this life. We will, for example, be hit by financial tempests more than financial windfalls. We are just as apt to be flooded with trials as we will be showered with blessings. Nevertheless, as Isaiah said, “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” Therefore, no matter how your ship of life is being tempest tossed, hold firm with the anchors of Christ, the Word, the Spirit and the promises of God, and pray for day to come. With Christ, all of our problems are temporary. The greatest majority of them can be solved though wise counsel. Most will be taken care of by the course of life. They are, “such as is common to man.” In Christ, every trial, problem, hurt, loss and the like will be overcome in a place called heaven. Again, when the storms of life come, and they will come, hold fast with your anchors and pray for the morning.
