Safe through and in trials

July 28

Daily Bible Reading: Acts 27:26 – 44

Verse of the Day: Acts 27:33 – 34 – “And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take some food, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye wait and continue fasting, having taken nothing. Wherefore I beseech you to take some food: for this is for your safety: for there shall not a hair perish from the head of any of you.”

Yesterday, we spoke about Paul saying, “I told you so.” Today, we see that as they are soon to become shipwrecked, that Paul encourages them. These sailors were blessed because of Paul and didn’t know it. God had planned for Paul to go to Rome, and His plan will not fail. And, because Paul needed to be safe, they would be too. 

Still, they would all have to go through the consequences to arrive safely at the other side. Sometimes in our lives, we must go through the consequences of other’s choices before we can arrive safely in God’s plan. Trust Him.

Prayer: Jesus, I find that sometimes I am the victim of other’s choices. Yet, I can trust You to accomplish Your plan and will for me. Amen.
