There is not one place in the Bible that promises our lives will be free of conflict. (Believe me, I’ve hunted for it!) In every life, including the Christian’s life, there will be times when waters try to capsize our boats or flames attempt to fry us to a crisp. The world hates believers, and it will try to drag you down. BUT when we rely on our Anchor–when we remember Jesus is by our side–we can face those waters and flames with the knowledge that He already holds the victory. We can stand secure on His strength. HE WILL BE WITH US. Take heart in that message, dear Christian. You are not alone.
