Your Christian life can be likened to a ship, traveling upon the sea of life. At times that sea may be tranquil as glass, with the sails of your faith fully unfurled and the mast of your obedience pointed strait at the sun in a cloudless sky. At other times our Christian walk is that same ship, only the sea of life is a couldron of white capped waves. Our ship is being tossed about, the sails of faith are being ripped and the mast is creaking. We fear we will be capsized if Christ, the Master of the sea does not show up and speak into our lives.
I have found three incredible promises in Hebrews 13 that gives hope to Christians who are in that second description. Though our faith may flicker, God has promised that by His word it will not go out. Though our little ship, called the Christian walk, may threaten to capsize and be made shipwreck, yet in the hands of our Lord, it will not. May the three promises below anchor you today my friend, as they have anchored me.
Promise #1 Hebrews 13:5 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “(I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
Promise #2 Hebrews 13:6 6 so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?”
Promise #3 Hebrews 13:8 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
