Scripture Reading: Psalm 55:6-8; Isaiah 43:2; Philippians 4:



Scripture Text: Acts 27:1-27,44

v. 20-23 “But after long abstinence from food, then Paul stood in the midst of them and said, ‘Men, you should have listened to me, and not sailed from Crete and incurred this disaster and loss. And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. 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.’ Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. However, we must run aground on a certain island’.”



You’re Gonna Make It!!

I believe this message is from God today. Many are going through tough times. Sickness, financial, loved ones etc. Look at our troubled world. Scripture says “His grace is sufficient.

I believe God wants to lift your spirits today.
I believe God wants to raise your sights today.
I believe God wants you to take heart.

YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE IT THROUGH YOUR STORM.
We must TRUST.

How long have you been going through YOUR storm?
For many days? For many weeks? For many months? For many years?
I believe many times, the longer a negative situation drags on the lower our hopes begin to sink.
Are you at that place today? Have you lost all hope that you will be saved?
Have you given up? Are you being tempted to give up?
What is going to be the difference between you giving up and you making it through your storm?

Why are storms a required course in the Christian life?
1. Storms increase our faith in God.
2. Storms build our faith that we are special to God.
3. Storms build our faith in God’s goodness.

1. Storms increase our faith in God.
God gave Paul a promise regarding his personal storm.
God promised Paul that…He would indeed appear before Caesar, which meant it wasn’t his time to die yet.
Until you fulfill the will and calling of God for your life, you are invincible. Remember, Satan was told “do anything to Job, but you can’t touch his life.”

2. Storms build our faith that we are special to God.
By going through storms we come to see God not only as someone who is powerful enough and capable enough to take care of us, but as someone who is related to us personally.

3. Storms build our faith in God’s goodness.
Sometimes, when a storm comes into our life, we question God’s goodness. We wonder, “If God is really so good, why is he allowing such bad things to happen to me?”

Paul’s own testimony is this:
v-23 “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…”

God turns, Storms into Platforms and allows us to use them to share our faith with others. Paul had a wonderful platform from which to share about his faith in the one true God with these sailors and prisoners.
