Cast four anchors and wished for the day.

 

Yes, the storm is raging, but I want you to know we're not going down with the ship. We are more than conquerors. There is VICTORY in Jesus Christ. As I read through the New Testament, last week I was reading Acts 27 and these words popped out. Listen carefully. Then fearing, lest we should have fallen on rocks, They cast four anchors out of the stern and wished for the day. Yes, for the Apostle on the ship the storm was raging, and it looked dire. But Paul knew they were not going down with the ship. Paul knew there was victory. I want you to know, dear brother and sister, there is Victory in Jesus Christ! We are victorious! Cast those anchors. Our anchor will hold.

#1 anchor - salvation

#2 anchor - separation

#3 anchor - supplication

#4 anchor - sanctification

You know what this whole world needs. You know what that man across the street, that one you work beside, that relative that you love -  you know what they need. They need salvation. They need a good old dose of repentance and faith in Jesus Christ saving grace of God that will change their life.

Then we need to be separated from this 'ole world. Jesus has told us we're in this world. We are in this world as the salt and light, but we're separate from this world. We're to be distinctive that our light and that the salt will have influence on this world.

Next is supplication - we are to pray. We are to believe that God answers prayer. The Bible tells us be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God. Ask, seek and find. God will answer. We must pray and seek God's mind.

We are separated - Sanctification. We are different, and we are to serve the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be different from this world. We are to be a holy, peculiar people, and as we cast those anchors, they will hold in the time of storm.

We may see nothing but raging storm around us, but listen, dear brother and sisters, the sun is going to rise, and we are victors in Jesus Christ.
