HEART OF THE FATHER (HOTF) : TRUSTING IN HIM

"Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God  that it will be just as it was told me". Acts 27:25

Paul had gone through series of trials and in this text , he was in transit by sea to appear before Caesar (another trial). As if he hadn't had enough trouble, a terrible storm arose , which threatened his life and that of his travelling companions. 

As a human being, he should have been greatly terrified and distressed. ( After all, he was being persecuted for the sake of the gospel ,so why should this happen to him?). Instead, he encouraged the others because he believed what God had said to him regarding the journey.  An angel had appeared to him in the night and assured him that no lives will be lost .(Acts 27:22-24)

In life ,we all have various storms ravaging our ship. These storms could be in our family ,health, career or finances. Believe me, these times can be so frustrating and depressing. So what do we do in times like this? We should hold on to the promise which God gave concerning that particular issue. If has God has promised ,he is able to bring it to pass. {HOTF}
