Joshua 1:1-9

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
-Joshua 1:9

1 Chronicles 13-15
John 7:1-27

When Matt and Jessica tried to navigate their sailboat into a Florida inlet during Hurricane Sandy, the craft ran aground. As the waves crashed around them, they quickly dropped anchor. It held the sailboat in place until they could be rescued. They said that if they had not put down the anchor, “We would have lost our boat for sure.” Without the anchor, the relentless waves would have smashed the vessel onto the shore.
We need anchors that hold us secure in our spiritual lives as well. When God called Joshua to lead His people after Moses’ death, He gave him anchors of promises he could rely on in troubled times. The Lord said to him, “I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you…The LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:5,9). God also gave Joshua and His people the “Book of the Law” to study and observe (vv. 7-8). That, and God’s presence, were anchors the Israelites could rely on as they faced many challenges.
When we’re in the middle of suffering or when doubts start threatening our faith, what are our anchors? We could start with Joshua 1:5. Although our faith may feel weak, if it’s anchored in God’s promises and presence, He will safely hold us. – Anne Cetas
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love. – Owens

When we feel the stress of the storm, we learn the strength of the anchor.
