What comes to your mind when you hear the word “anchor”? 

I usually thing of water, boats, and ships.

Secondly, I think of grounding, security, and weight.

I think of attachment and protection and safety.

I think of immovability.

I also think of storms and severe weather.

Anchors essentially keep vessels from going adrift. How the anchor is crafted and where its planted play significant roles in the outcome of that vessel too.

Some anchors are crafted to claw in or dig into the bed of the water. Some are extremely heavy and due to that heaviness, they keep the vessel in place.

Why are anchors used in the first place? To keep a vessel in one place, and to combat strong wind and currents that want to move the vessel from its place.

Today we explore the depth and weight of our “anchors”. With that in mind:

How firm is your faith?

How deeply rooted are you in preparation for the future winds of life that are guaranteed to hit?

Are you digesting the Word of God, allowing it to transform you and build you?

One such way to strengthen and anchor our souls is through cleaving to life verses.

Listen in to find out:

– What a life verse is
– Why you need one
– And, how it can cement you and breathe life into your spirit.

*You won’t want to miss the prayer toward the middle of the episode. I’ll honestly be listening to this entire episode a couple times to encourage myself

Quotes to Remember:

“This is a different type of scripture that you will choose to rest on. That is what a life verse is.”

“Sometimes God doesn’t answer the prayer, but He gives us the grace to go through it.”

“God is sovereign. It’s up to Him whether He answers our prayers and how He answers our prayers.”

“Lord, if it be Your will that I continue to walk through this fire, would you dear Lord give me the grace to endure?”

“God even wins when it seems that satan is victorious.”

“We don’t want to forfeit the work of the Kingdom. Our life is kingdom work. We are about our Father’s business.”

“Saturate, equip, and prepare yourself through the Word of God.”
