Today’s devotion is based on Acts 27:22-25 where we hear Paul speak words of Encouragement and hope to a boat crew who believed they were going to die because of the storm they were riding out. “‘But now I beg you, take courage! Not one of you will lose your life; only the ship will be lost. For last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship came to me and said, “Don’t be afraid, Paul! You must stand before the Emperor. And God in his goodness to you has spared the lives of all those who are sailing with you!’ So take courage, men! For I trust in God that it will be just as I was told.’”
 
Sometimes you may feel that you are being tossed about in the chaos and turmoil that can occur in life. We don’t have a Paul to give us courage and hope, but we do have Jesus who in his death and resurrection overcame death, calling, “Have courage! Even if you die, you will live with me! My Father has given you to me, and I will take you with me to stand before my Father in heaven. No-one can snatch you out of my hands!”
Those words have gotten me through many trials and tribulations in life. I hope they will be your comfort and aid in your life.
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator, and sustainer of all things, thank you for your words of comfort and hope in the Bible. Help me in the trials of life to remember your words so that I can have the peace that passes all understanding. I pray this, in Jesus name. Amen.
