Anchors help keep a boat steady & locked down. They’re helpful when there’s a need for stability & immobility. On the flip side, anchors don’t let a boat do what it’s designed to do – float & move. There are times & places for anchors but not if there’s a need for freedom & movement.
Sometimes we might have anchors in our lives that restrict us from flowing & staying in synch with the Holy Spirit. Some of these impeding anchors might include:
- fear: maybe we’re scared of what might happen or afraid of failing or making a mistake
- routine: if our routines become ruts, then were merely living in a grave with the ends kicked out! May our routines facilitate walking with the Holy Spirit 🙂
- unbelief: sometimes we can have a very serious problem if our intellect undermines rather than supports faith
- people: I’m a firm believer that people are important & let’s be keenly aware of the influences we let people have in our lives
Let’s keep ourselves anchored into a tandem lifestyle with the Holy Spirit 🙂
