Nibble of Bread : Scared to Death

October 27, 2012

Acts 27:33

Just as day was dawning, Paul urged everyone to eat. “You have been so worried that you haven’t touched food for two weeks,” he said.

This verse took place during a long voyage across open ocean. There were 276 men on board this death ride. Containing soldiers, sailors and fishermen. These types of men are known for being pretty tough guys. The more seasoned and weathered, generally the more tough. Well every single one of them was terrified for His life. Except for two men, Paul and Luke. These men kept their faith anchored in God’s mighty hand and deliverance. Although they were Godly men they still suffered during this voyage. Did that mean God didn’t love them? Did that mean they abandoned their faith and chased after their own reasoning?

Of course not. These men knew that God was behind all this. Their job was to stay strong and faithful. To be the light in the darkness, and the salt of the earth. With their faith anchored in the Rock of Christ they were able to bring all these men to safety, they were able to share the love and light of Jesus with all these men and everyone they contacted along the way for the remainder of this amazing journey.

When times get hard, know that God is right there. Know that now is not the time to bail on God, but rather to seek Him more and look forward to His deliverance. And when He does deliver, because He ALWAYS does, get ready for more. If we allow God, He will lead us from Glory to Glory!
