19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
An anchor is a stabilizer, and it helps maintain a steady position. Without an anchor things get a little unsteady, or uneasy. An anchor can also be looked at as someone, or something who maintains order, and leads in the right direction.
In football, the quarterback of a team can be looked at as an anchor. The quarterback can maintain order by running, and coordinating the offense correctly and efficiently. When players get out of position, emotions get a little out of wack, or the quarterback see’s something that the opponent is bringing at them; the quarterback can maintain order, and lead in the right direction.
Jesus needs to be your quarterback. He needs to be your anchor to your life. God should be the primary source that stabilizes your life and brings order to it. Without Jesus you should feel a little unsteady, but with Him your life is a lot more in control.
Yes, things may get a little rocky at times. Life occurrence’s may pop up that we do not want to happen, but God is always faithful when the ocean of our life gets a little uneasy. God never runs away from a fight. We back off from Him, but he never backs off from us. God is always ready to be your anchor.
Prayer: Jesus, be my anchor today. I need you to maintain order in my life every second of the day. I understand that I am nothing without you. You are the leader of my life. Father, stabilize my life today, and show me anything that you need to show me today. Help me to hear your voice, and receive whatever you have to offer me today. Jesus, I truly need you to anchor my life. Keep me connected to your heart and your understanding. In Jesus name. Amen.
Action: Take a moment or second today to take a deep breath, close your eyes, and invite God into whatever you have going on.
