Christ is your Anchor
Isaiah 26:4 " Trust in the Lord forever, For in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock".
Isaiah describes that God is interested in saving or "rescuing" His people. God is the head of a very large rescue team, the body of Christ. As team members, we must have a mature, intimate relationship with our leader and with each other. Why? Relationship develops opportunity to learn of each other and develop trust in the ability of each member of the team and the leader of the team.
As a former firefighter-paramedic I understand when rescuing someone hanging out the window of a burning building, dangling on the face of a mountain cliff, or trapped in the confines of a deep shaft, the rope and anchor to which my harness is tied to must be strong and unmovable.
Isaiah is telling us that we can rest in the assurance that God is that strong, immovable rock, our anchor. It is your responsibility, as part of the team, to know your job, participate in the training, and respond. You must trust in your leader (God) and your team mates abilities so those you are called "rescue" are not lost because of your weakness/fear. God will empower you! His passion fuels your engine, your heart, to equip you and sustain you in your role as a member of the body.
Respond to the call!
