How to Stand Firm in Troubled Times
DR. ROSIE RUSH
How to Stand Firm in Troubled Times will encourage the hearts of everyone—those who have had to stand firm and those who will have to stand firm. In all of our lives, some storms will come, and some winds will blow, but knowing how to be anchored in the storm is a blessing that only God can prepare us for.
The Bible uses an anchor symbolically to represent the hope we have as the anchor of our soul. When the storms of life flood the Christian with fear, worry, doubt, or disappointment, he or she can hold onto God’s promises and find stability in the salvation Jesus has provided. No matter what happens, God’s promises remain. He does not want His children to be set adrift, but He wants them to be fixed in a secure place. Just as an anchor that grounds a ship to protect it from going adrift at sea, so does our hope in Jesus who keeps us grounded and secure during the difficult times of life.
