When the storms of life bring title waves to your circumstances and you wonder if youíll ever survive to see the dawn of another day, itís important to not make a miscalculation in what you need to do at that very pivotal moment, have faith. When Paul was being taken as a prisoner to Rome, on a ship with 265 other prisoners, they had to run their ship aground in order to survive. The sailors wanted to abandon ship to save their own lives, when Paul, who had gained respect over the journey, informed the soldiers that unless those sailors who knew how to properly handle the ship in getting it aground, stayed on board to accomplish the task, they would all perish.

Is your journey getting scary, friend? Are you tempted to abandon ship in the midst of the storm? It would have been easy for everyone to give up and let the raging sea take them to their watery grave, using the excuse that the natives on the island were probably savages anyhow. Instead, the natives befriended them and provided food and shelter. You see, the enemy wants you to give up. Heíll tell you a lie about your current situation and your future as well. But itís not true. Instead, seek God and feel His comfort and care to deliver you from your trial if you turn and follow Him. You can know He is God if you become still and seek His wise counsel.

When you hear that still small voice guiding you; be obedient, no matter how hard; whether your mind understands or not, and learn to trust the shepherd who leads you to greener pastures of contentment, peace, and joy. The trials for Paul were not over once they shipwrecked on the island, but that particular storm had passed and all was seemingly well in terms of lives saved. Itís tempting to try to win the war, but we must focus on each battle set before us to be determined to overcome evil with Godís goodness. I encourage you to, like Paul, be a beacon of Christ Jesusí light to, and for, those around you.
