“So take courage! For I believe God. It will be just as he said” (Acts 27:25 NLT).


The ship taking Paul to Rome for his appeal to Caesar was caught up in a great storm and in danger of sinking. But God sent an angel to encourage Paul that although they would suffer shipwreck, no one on board would drown. All would be saved. Paul encouraged the others on the ship with the word the Lord had given him.
Paul’s three faith statements are encouraging to consider:
1) “Take courage” – Put away fear and be encouraged.
2) “I believe God” – Paul declared his firm faith in God.
3) “It will be just as He said” – He declared his faith in God’s Word.
Try saying these three statements the next time you are facing one of life’s storms.
PRAYER: Lord, we believe in You. So we choose to be strong and courageous in You because You are always with us and never leave us. Help us also to encourage those around us with our firm faith in You and in Your Word. In Jesus’ name, amen.
