Bible Reading: Acts 27
Meditation Focus: Safe Through The Storms
Thoughts for Reflection:
1. (v1 – 38) Do you notice that when all else feels hopeless and there is nothing else to believe, God remains ever present in our lives with a sound of hope, encouragement and His promise?As I navigate a crazy world and sometimes difficult times, what are some practical ways that I can be more inclined to God’s encouragement each new day, rather than being sucked into the world’s negativity?
2. (v 21 – 38) In the midst of a very dark period, Paul brings a very strong vibe of encouragement to those around him. Can you be a more encouraging person than you currently are? Are there specific people in your influence space that you really know can do with some encouragement today?
In Prayer Today
For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ Acts 27:23-24 NKJV
Pray today for people who are connected to you in some way or the other- people in your influence space. Pray for colleagues at work, bosses, staff, neighbours, classmates, family members, and so on. Pray that because of their connection to you, there will be benefit and value that they will come into.
Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. Acts 27:25 NKJV
Pray for a renewed confidence and strength for your heart. Pray to be established in believing God, such that you will undoubtedly see a fulfilment of His promises over your life.
