Anchored In The Lord

"Anchored In The Lord" 
by  Erica F. Brooks

Devotional - Faith Confessions Prayers Whenever God tries to promote us, it is in our nature to pick up the phone, grab friends and pull family by the hand. In most cases, we help our loved ones pack their bags for the journey. Why? Most of us as Believers whole-heartedly desire for others to be “promoted” with us. So you gather your friends and family and they all board your ship; yet, you find yourself frustrated because some people are rowing (pushing you closer to your purpose) while others are anchors (stopping your progress). Webster’s Dictionary defines an anchor as, “A heavy weight that keeps an entire ship at a standstill.” Interesting… why do we get frustrated with the anchors? Why are we surprised that some of our friends and yes, even family are anchored in their own agenda, they are anchored in old mindsets and will never row the boat if it means helping someone else (including you) advance? Don’t get upset! Perhaps you didn’t follow God’s instructions… “The LORD said to Abram (You), “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. Genesis 12:1-3” Our loyalty has to be to God and HIS word first. We cannot take everyone to the next level with us. Continuing to carry dead weight can make us miss our blessing. Do you want the blessings of Abraham? “Be Anchored In The Lord”
