Running around? Or trusting in God? (Acts 27)

The contrast between Paul and the sailors couldn’t be more drastic in this story.

The sailors were panicking, running all around trying everything possible to save themselves. The result? Despair.

Paul, on the other hand, heard God’s words of encouragement and remained calm. And he told the sailors,

So take courage, men, because I believe God that it will be just the way it was told to me. (27:25)

When life’s storms hit, (and they will hit), how do you respond? With panic? Or do you trust God that he will do as he has promised? That even if  we must walk through the valley of death, he will be with us? And if he will do that for us, how much more will he help us overcome any other problem we may face in life?


About bkshiroma

I'm from Hawaii, but have been in Japan as a missionary/English teacher since 1995. I'm currently going to a church called Crossroad Nishinomiya, an international church in Nishinomiya, a city right between Kobe and Osaka. Check out their website: 私がハワイから来ましたけど1995年に宣教師と英会話の教師として日本に引っ越しました。 今西宮にあるクロスロード西宮という国際の教会に行っています。どうぞ、そのホムページを見てください:
