When you think of an anchor, you usually picture the heavy object that's tied to a ship that keeps it secure to the bottom of the sea. An anchor is something that provides a firm foundation for our hope. During the trials and storms of life the term anchor is used metaphorically (in Scripture) to represent God and faith.
“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,” (Hebrews 6:19, ESV)
There will be storms of doubt (i.e. failure, depression, loneliness, discouragement, crisis, stress, etc.)where we wonder why God is allowing them and question whether He loves us. We can weather them by coming back to the truth of the resurrection of Jesus, which is the bedrock of the entire faith. We weather them by remembering that God, who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, has promised to bring us through every conceivable difficulty to ultimate glorification.
