As we have been focusing on the Armor of God as listed in Ephesians 6:10-20 during our morning messages, I was reminded of that illustration. I thought I would post it here.
The mighty Niagara River plummets some 180 feet at the American and Horseshoe Falls. Before the falls, there are violent, turbulent rapids. Farther upstream, however, where the river's current flows more gently, boats are able to navigate.
Just before the Welland River empties into the Niagara, a pedestrian walkway spans the river. Posted on this bridge's pylons is a warning sign for all boaters: "Do you have an anchor?" followed by, "Do you know how to use it?"
Faith, like an anchor, is something we need to have and use to avoid spiritual cataclysm.
I trust each of us understands the true power of our faith in God. For my own part, the anchor of faith has delivered me in many a difficult situation. I hope you can say the same.
