Be carried by His Spirit
Read Acts 27:13-44 When we experience storms in our life it’s natural to want to take control, to physically fight and do everything in our strength to battle against it.
This is what Paul and his companions did as they encountered a ‘wind of hurricane force, called the “northeaster”‘(Acts 27:14). They found themselves fighting to save their lives lost out at sea.
But there came a time when they no longer had the capacity or strength to struggle any longer. ‘The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind; so we gave way to it and were driven along.’(v15)
This was the real turning point for them! Once they stopped struggling against the wind, the Wind of the Spirit carried them exactly where they needed to be for the gospel to continue spreading…the island of Malta! Surrender your storm to God. Take your hands off the wheel, let Him drive and you also will end up exactly where you need to be in order to carry out His plans and purposes for your life! Trust and obey!
