Whether it’s basketball, baseball, golf, or shooting sports; consistency can always be attributed to success. Consistency is the key. I remember an archery coach making the comment about a guy that had horrendous shooting form, but because he consistently went through the same routine with each shot, he learned to adapt and actually excel in competition shooting. In the archery world we use the term “anchor point” to refer to that place in which you anchor the bow string or release aid when coming to full draw. Whether it’s your string touching the corner of your mouth, tip of your nose, or your release resting on a particular place on your jawbone, you must have a solid anchor for consistent shooting. With this consistent anchor point in place, you can continue to find success regardless of what the pressures of the moment of truth throw your way.
And with the pressures of an ever-changing world around us continuing to mount, there is a need like never before for a solid anchor point in our daily lives. I’m not talking about living out the boring, mundane, ritualistic routine that some people strive for in their effort to be religious. I’m referring to finding consistency in Christ. Think your life is spinning out of control? Find your anchor point in Christ. When you are firmly rooted and grounded in Him, you’ll quickly realize that your best days are yet to come. I thank God that He is strong, stable, and mighty, and He does not change.
“I am the Lord, and I do not change.” Malachi 3:6
