Day 149, May 29 - Acts 27

click here for today's reading


So take heart, men, for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told.

Sometimes we can lean on the faith of others and other times people will lean on us and our faith.


  1. I think I mentioned this last year when we read this passage, but I don't remember reading this before. It is such as incredible chapter in so many ways. The faith of Paul, the centurion saving the prisoners, God saving them all...there is so much in this chapter, not to mention intrigue.

  2. Acts 27
    8-11 Coasting along it with difficulty, we came to a place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea. Since much time had passed, and the voyage was now dangerous because even the Fast was already over, Paul advised them, saying, "Sirs, I perceive that the voyage will be with injury and much loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives." But the centurion paid more attention to the pilot and to the owner of the ship than to what Paul said.

    22-24 Yet now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. For this very night there stood before me an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship, and he said, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar. And behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.'
