Acts 27:22-25 (AMP)
22 But [even] now I beg you to be in good spirits and take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you but only of the ship.
23 For this [very] night there stood by my side an angel of the God to Whom I belong and Whom I serve and worship,
24 And he said, Do not be frightened, Paul! It is necessary for you to stand before Caesar; and behold, God has given you all those who are sailing with you.
25 So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith (complete confidence) in God that it will be exactly as it was told me;
Any time you decide to do something better in your life – you can expect a storm – a challenge from Satan. It’s tough to be going through challenges and storms in life and remain happy in life. No matter what is going on in life, we need to remain joyful. Joy is powerful!
When we are in the middle of our storm, we have to believe that life will be exactly as God has planned it for us. We need to give our worry to God and go ahead and enjoy every situation we are in.
Faith is a force inside of us that was given to us by God. It’s up to us to release our faith. Just because it is inside of us, it does not mean we use it. It is time for us to quit worrying and start using what God has given us – our faith. God will show up in our storm – maybe not when we think He should, but He has promised that He will show up. God is with us even when we don’t feel Him with us.
When doubt comes, start doubting your doubt instead of doubting your situation. Put that doubt away!
