That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye be rooted and grounded in love. Maybe able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us (Ephesians 3:17-20). To be rooted and grounded in love is similar to an anchor, it’s holding on to God’s word no matter how the enemy may fight you in your mind with unbelief. When we place our faith like an anchor, the Father gives Himself to us like an anchor.
A anchor is a heavy object, usually an iron weight with flukes, lowered from a vessel to prevent drifting. It gives stability; a anchor supports, safeguards, gives security, protection, and defense. An anchor does what God will do for those who places their faith in Him. So many times we place our trust within ourselves and we make ourselves god over our life and situations. There is nothing to hard for God, what is impossible with man, is possible with God. God is the one that can heal a broken heart, diseased and sickly body, regulate a confused and troubled mind. God can heal and restore a marriage, open doors of opportunity that will bless you because the blessings of the Lord will make you rich and He will not add any sorry to it. When we try to bless ourselves and allow Satan to bless us, sooner or later sorry will prevail in what we thought was a blessing.
As Christians our faith must be anchored in God, and not in what we see, feel or hear. Without faith according to the Word of God, we cannot please God and this is why Satan comes to steal and kill our faith in God. The Bible is a book of promises to those who will place their faith in God. Anytime you place your faith in God, you will be tested. Faith is what you know of God and not what you have heard of Him, hearing and knowing is two different things.When you know Him, it’s faith, when you hear of Him, it’s belief. Abraham knew God, and his faith was in God and not what he was hearing of Him. When you experience something for yourself, that’s what you will have faith in.Read More
