Trusting During the Storm - Part 3

TRUSTING WITH ALL MY HEART            Page 5

V.24 ** What was the three part message given Paul by the angel?

1) Do not be afraid! (That is why Paul could tell the men to keep up their courage).
2) You must stand before Caesar. (This re-affirms the promise made back in chapter 23:11 when Jesus appeared along side of Paul in Jerusalem and said, "Take courage; for as you have solemnly witnessed to My cause at Jerusalem, so you must witness at Rome also").
3) God has granted you all those who are sailing with you. (Remember there were 276 people, all of whom were to arrive safely! cf. V.37 with V.44)

V.25 ** What is the "therefore", there for, at the beginning of this verse?

Since Paul warned them to not travel at this time of year because of great loss, and it turned out like he had warned; and since God had given him a message via an angel, there was only one thing to do..."Therefore, keep up your courage, men..."

** What phrase does Paul use to display the fact that he was "Trusting with all his heart" during this storm?

"...for I believe God..." - Sometimes it just comes down to that!

** How does that phrase fit your walk with the Lord, as you encounter the various storms in life? Do you find that you believe what God has said through His word, or do you take your eyes off of Him just to be fear stricken by the size of the storm?

** Specifically, what was it that Paul believed?

"...that it will turn out exactly as I have been told..."

** Did it?

Absolutely yes! The ship was wrecked by the storm (V.41), but all were saved (V.44).
