Acts 27:22 – 25; 29 (KJV)

22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship.

23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,

24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.

25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.

29 Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.

In times like these, we need a Savior; In times like these, we need an anchor
Be very sure, be very sure; Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.

The Presence of God is an anchor for us in a storm. Knowing that God has a plan for us is another anchor in a storm. A third anchor is having faith in what God has promised.

In Acts 27:25, Paul says,
“Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.”

Beloved, God always keeps His promises. Storms cannot hide our faces from God, because God is always with us. Storms cannot change the purpose of God, because it is ultimate. Storms cannot destroy the child of God, because God’s promises are sure.

There is somebody who is going through an intense storm right now. Your problems are overwhelming, and you think you can’t make it … that this is it and you are going under for the last time.

God is saying to you today: Be of good cheer! You may lose the cargo; you may lose the tackle of the ship; you may lose the ship; you may even get wet — but you are going to make it because of the promise of God.
And while you are waiting for the crisis to end, do the same thing that the sailors did:
Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day. — Acts 27:29

Anchor yourself on the Solid Rock and pray.

Beloved, The God you serve is with you! He is there! Be very sure that your anchor holds and grips Him!
Let His truth stabilize your life and give you the confidence you need in every crisis you face. Storms cannot hide God from you or you from God. God has a purpose for your life. There is a reason for it all, and you are going to make it through the storm!

God bless you is my prayer!
