David Jeremiah 21 April 2022 Daily Devotional MESSAGE
During World War II, the HMS Neptune hit an Italian minefield off Tripoli on December 19, 1941. Lost were 764 British and New Zealand sailors and crew. Only one man survived. He was twenty-year-old Norman Walton, and he escaped by clambering down the chain of the ship’s anchor and grabbing onto a floating raft. He was captured by an Italian ship and spent the next fifteen months as a prisoner of war. He had no idea he was the one-and-only survivor. When told, he didn’t believe it. It took a long time to accept.
There’s a lesson in that tragedy. We need to stay near the anchor that stabilizes our lives, ready to grip it tightly when the winds and fires come. We can’t sink when we’re holding to the anchor, and we can’t be lost when gripping it. When we anchor ourselves in Christ, our faith cannot be shaken.
Our anchor isn’t cast downward into the water but upward into the sky, and one day it will carry us upward, toward the Rock of our Salvation.
I’ve an anchor safe and sure, / That can ever more endure. / And it holds, my anchor holds! William C. Martin, “My Anchor Holds”
