The Anchoring of the Anchor

JAMES 1:17-- "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."

Many a person’s hope is anchored to the heart, but where is the heart anchored?

A city of oil rigs lies in the Gulf of Mexico. When a hurricane rages through the petroleum metropolis, all the focus turns to anchoring the rigs.

People with anchored hearts trust their emotions, their instincts, and their dreams. But if a heart is unanchored, the personality gets wrecked when the storms sweep through.

The only place to anchor the human heart is in the immutable heart of God. He tells Moses His name is “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14). Not “I Was,” or “I Will Be,” but “I AM”—constant, changeless, and faithful.

You can anchor your heart to God’s heart!
