Get through this storm
'I believe God that it will be just as it was told me.' Acts 27:25 NKJV
On his way to Rome, Paul went through a devastating storm. His story teaches us three valuable lessons:
(1) Your disobedience can cause a storm. Because the captain wouldn't heed Paul's warning, he lost his ship, his cargo and almost his life. Your disobedience can cause a storm in your health, your finances, your family and your career. God doesn't preface his commandments by saying, 'If you feel like it, do this.' No. He means what he says and he intends it for your good, so pay attention! (2) You're not alone in the storm. God is with you and he's watching over you. Paul said: 'There stood by me this night the angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, "Do not be afraid... God has granted you all those who sail with you... take heart... for I believe God' (Acts 27:23-25 NKJV). With God on board, there's not a storm powerful enough to take you under. (3) When you stand on God's promises, you have his authority. Paul may have looked like a prisoner, but in reality he had more power than the captain. Though bound in chains, he was the freest man on the ship. You see, when you've heard clearly from God, you can handle any situation because his Word says: 'No weapon formed against you shall prosper...every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord' (Isaiah 54:17 NKJV).
So, the word for you today is: keep trusting God and he will bring you through this storm!
