In Acts 27 the Lord encouraged Paul in the midst of a storm at sea. Jesus assured Paul of his mission; “You must be brought before Caesar..”. Paul had God’s word that he was going to make it to Rome. It is wonderful to have that assurance regarding your purpose for life. When the storms of life come and we are prone to give up; when we are anxious and have doubts, we can rest on the promises of God. Jesus told Paul: “You shall bear witness of Me in Rome.” Paul believed God’s word to him, that it would be just as it was told to him. Paul had confidence in the word of God! So it should be with every Bible believing Christian.
