    But some Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there, and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul, and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. But as the disciples stood around him, he rose up, and entered into the city. On the next day he went out with Barnabas to Derbe. Act...

    Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Matthew 13:44 WEB.Jesus told a parable about a man who found some hidden treasure in a field. He joyfully sold all that he had so he coul...

When You Cannot Face the Wind

  • Now when the south wind blew gently, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, they weighed anchor and sailed along Crete, close to the shore. But soon a tempestuous wind, called the northeaster, struck down from the land. And when the ship was caught and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along. Acts 27:13 ESV

    Paul was now a prisoner and being carried by ship to eventually witness to Caesar, but on the way they were caught in a terrible storm. They could not face the strength of the wind and were driven by the storm for two weeks, completely out of control.

    However, they were completely in God's control because He controlled the wind that drove them. They finally landed on a beach, and the Holy Spirit used Paul to heal all the diseases on the entire island of Malta. They all came to know the Lord. It was just a side trip on his journey.

    Sometimes in life we face winds like this, and no amount of prayer, or giving, or crying seems to change our course. Just remember that when a storm blows you off course that God is controlling the direction of the wind. We will be driven right to where God wants us to be.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that You control the wind and that this will pass. I will come through this and have a testimony of Your greatness in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: Happy Sunday to all of you! If you are in need of help though, please always feel welcome to post a prayer requests at our private prayer network. Here is the page: RHM Prayer Network

This is such a timely message for me. While I don't like to call my time  right now a "storm", I will say, the Captain chooses to do major course correction.

Amen when our course changes and we are put on a different path or faced with a delay, it is by God's divine providence.

It's all in the hand of the Father we have no control. We just have to try and humble ourselves and pray. <3
