“But I will call on God, and the Lord will rescue me. Morning, noon, and night I cry out in my distress, and the Lord hears my voice.”
Psalm 55:16-17 (NLT)

When in a storm, buildings need a firm foundation, ships need a strong anchor, and trees need a deep root system. The survival through a storm is dependent upon being linked to that which cannot be moved. When storms and struggles come, and we know they will come, and some things seem unbearable, what are you linked to? Psalm 55:22 (NLT) tells us, “Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.”

And Matthew 11:28-29 (NLT) says, “Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.’” We need this, don’t we? We need that assurance that when we come to God, He’s our anchor and He is our rest for our soul. Our minds and our emotions need that confidence to know our hope rests in Him. And as Psalm 46:1 (NLT) tells us, “God is our refuge and our strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.”
