" . . . In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him . . . " Rom 8:37

In Acts 27, Paul's ship got into a storm. let's look at how to get out of one - without losing everything. First, prepare for the storm before you get into it! The wise man built his house upon the rock, because he believed in storms. (Matt 7:24) Where did we ever get the idea that Christians shouldn't have problems? God's more interested in your character than He is in your comfort. Listen, ". . . to you it has been granted . . . to suffer for His sake." (Phil 1:29) This is warfare - not welfare!

Next, stay calm! Panic kills more pilots than bad weather, because it destroys your ability to function properly. In the storm, Jesus said to His disciples ". . . It is I; be not afraid." (Mk 6:50) Get your eyes on Jesus and keep them there, otherwise your fear will hurt you more than your circumstances.

Finally, never abandon your purpose! They threw their cargo - the purpose for their journey - overboard! Don't do it! Never let go of the purpose for which God has called you, for it will sustain you in the storm. Paul said, "We know that all things work together for good . . . to them who are the called according to His purpose." (Rom 8:28) Be strong, today; the storm doesn't control your destiny, God does! He's still in charge. Stand up and announce, "In all these things we are more than conquerors." (Rom 8:37)
