“FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH I CALL TO YOU, I CALL AS MY HEART FAINT; LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I”.
I was at the main harbour a few days ago, though not for the first time. I have been there several times, but this particular visit kept me thinking about how ships are anchored.
It was fascinating to see and hear the massive links of chain screeching against the metal bows of the ship as the anchor is raised. The metal links of the anchor chains no doubt are very heavy. But they are light, compared to the total weight of the ship, yet the anchor is placed in the bottom of the sea to hold the giant ship fast, against the boisterous and angry sea-waves.
In the last three weeks, fear and insecurity have taken over many people as a result of the senseless murders of some prominent people. Most of these murders appear to be well planned and executed. Whilst the citizenry are looking for a place of safety, our leaders and politicians as usual, are playing the political equalization game, trying to let the world know, under whose regime more murders took place.
Just as ships need anchors to keep them from drifting away, what you need in Ghana now is “Spiritual Anchor” in your life, in order to remain steadfast and not drift away into doubt, fear, paranoia and unbelieve. Faith in God, and our Lord Jesus Christ, is the main anchor we need in our lives to hold us fast, during such times of social turbulence and wickedness that seem to be everywhere in Ghana today. It is now clear, that neighbours no longer trust themselves, drivers no longer trust passengers and vice-versa. It is difficult to give someone lift in the middle of the road without being suspicious.
Remain steadfast in Christ no matter what is happening and what you are going through.
Stay blessed always and remember to love someone and mean it.
