God's Word is an Anchor

January 8, 2023 Kelly Needham

Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. —Romans 12:2

Have you ever played in the ocean at waist level? It’s amazing how you can be convinced that you’ve been standing in one place, yet turning to see your umbrella a quarter mile away will quickly prove your error. The current was so subtle you weren’t even aware you were drifting.

This is what it’s like living in a fallen world. We’re caught up in a current. Materialism, selfishness, immorality, and mindless entertainment daily nudge us away from God. Add our self-centered flesh and our enemy, Satan, and there’s a lot of strength to that current.

The Word of God is like an anchor. Each time you read it, you are putting your anchor in the ground and holding on. It keeps you from drifting. But without daily grabbing on to this anchor, you may be miles away before you realize what happened. This is why frequent study and meditation of the Word of God is crucial.
