THE SYMBOL OF an anchor is powerful because of what it stands for: hope.
The book of Hebrews speaks of “this hope we have an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast” (Hebrews 6:19).
That’s a game changer.
A boat that is anchored can be battered, but it won’t be moved.
Because of Jesus, we have hope.
And because of hope, even in the midst of the worst storms of this life, we have an anchor for our souls.
Hope is a powerful thing…
I’ve heard that in Air Force survival training courses, instructors teach something called the “Rule of Threes”: In a survival situation you can last three weeks without food, three days without water, three hours without shelter in extreme conditions, and three minutes without air.
But you can’t make it three seconds without hope.
The most important battle is the one you fight within, in your mind and heart, to not give up.
If you give up hope, you won’t have the motivation to do anything else in a critical situation.
That’s a fact backed up by medical science.
Dr. Meg Meeker observed, “Physicians can often tell the moment a terminally ill patient gives up hope. Death comes very quickly.” Levi Lusko – “There’s No Such Thing As a Wireless Anchor,” THROUGH THE LENS OF A LION, pp.96-97
