Are you anxious in your prayer life? Are you stressed in your devotion life? Does Being a Christ follower fall off? That shows me that there are aspects of your faith walk that are unstable. Im not giving you guilt today!
Your putting your hope in the wrong stuff.
What to do? Back end of verse 6.
-But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
There is no anchor for your soul.
Faith in Jesus is the anchor for your soul. Drop the anchor of your soul.
Take your faith and drop it down and anchor yourself to faith in Jesus.
Trials will happen…be anchored.
