Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
- Hebrews 13:8
One of the great blessings of living in Miami, Florida is accessibility to the beautiful beaches that our city has to offer. When our children were young, we would always look forward to beach trips. It was a great, inexpensive way to relax and experience the ocean.
Since our children were small I recall holding their hands as we would enter the ocean. One moment we would be standing and then a wave would come and sweep them off their feet. How true that is of life, we can have our feet firmly planted and then something comes along and knocks us down, just like the ocean waves.
Hebrews 13:8 tells us that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever," - there's our anchor! Jesus will never disappoint me. His plan is for my good, whether yesterday, today, or twenty years from now. He loves me and will continue to love me no matter my circumstances.
When the waves of life knock us down, His hand will never slip. In the still water or rough surf, my anchor holds firm!
