Philippians 4:12-13 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

In the book of Acts (chapter 27), Paul and company experienced a storm that stripped them of their expected comforts and provisions. Tossed about on a ship, having had to throw their cargo overboard, with no sight of sun or stars to determine their location, long without food, Paul remained close with God, and thus strong and hopeful for himself and for all the men on board.

As we find ourselves in a different kind of storm, some of us feel our temporal anchors are not serving to steady us. But Jesus Christ is the unmoveable, solid, steady, ever-present anchor who holds us close, both in humble means and in prosperity.

Ray Boltz wrote a hymn, its refrain goes like this:

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees as I face the raging seas
The anchor holds in spite of the storm

 OUR Anchor is Jesus Christ, and He isn't going anywhere.
