The only time you truly know the value and strength of an anchor is during a storm. When the waters are rising around you and you are finding it hard to hold on and stay afloat, that’s when you see God show up. 
 
Nothing will make God more real to you than those times when what you thought was a blessing turns bitter.
 
Nothing will make God more real to you than those times when what you thought was a blessing turns bitter. Maybe it’s a job that has turned bitter, or a marriage, or a friendship. Maybe your health, your finances or your worries about your nation and culture. It can happen in lots of ways.
 
God is often doing His greatest work when it seems like He is nowhere to be found.
 
But when things get bitter, that’s when your view of God gets even bigger—if and when you cry out to Him and then do what He says to do. God is often doing His greatest work when it seems like He is nowhere to be found. He sometimes does His best work in the dark. In those times when you don’t think He is doing anything, behind the scenes He is actually up to something great. But He’s waiting for you to call out to Him so He can reveal His pathway for you. 
 
God longs to bring you and me into deeper experiences with Him. And He’s our only anchor in the storms of life.

Dr. Tony Evans is one of the country’s most respected leaders in evangelical circles. As a pastor, teacher, author and speaker, he serves the body of Christ through his unique ability to communicate complex theological truths through simple, yet profound, illustrations.

Dr. Evans serves as president of The Urban Alternative, a national ministry that seeks to restore hope and transform lives through the proclamation and the application of the Word of God.
