Anchored in Spirit

Wandering, drifting, waywardness, even floundering; these are all traits and habits that directly impact our closeness to one another, to our jobs or hobbies, and especially our relationship and love in the Lord. Our devotional today helps remind us that though having some ‘wiggle room’ in life is a good thing (exercise our free will and self-determination), getting too far away leaves us desensitized to His calling, His leading, and His ‘still small voice’ tugging on our hearts.

Imagine a water-skier having SO much line that they would be 1/4 mile from the tow-boat. Sure, the line will hold and pull them along and the skier would even enjoy the ride. But the danger and ridiculousness of such an event indicates how precarious our spiritual lives are as we drift farther and farther away from the Lord. Flying a kite, or having a three-mile long fishing line would be similar; it would work, but woefully flawed.

Psalms 29:2 reads, “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness“. So, take some time right now to let His tug pull you closer. Each time you allow His pulling spirit to draw you closer, your Spirit Anchor will be strengthened, His tow line shortened, and your life will remain centered quite a bit more often. Otherwise, you are drifting one side to the other and getting off-track.
