GOD-TRACKING IS HAVING FAITH IN GOD’S PLANS, EVEN THROUGH SHIPWRECK 

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope

The night was very dark. The wind howled through torn rigging like a ravenous wolf. Lashing rain combined with smashing white waters, flooded the deck. The crew and prisoners on board this vessel had been lashed by a ferocious storm at sea for weeks. They were exhausted and feared certain death. Paul, a prisoner aboard the ship said, “Men, 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.’”

True to his Word, God preserved all their lives. The ship ran aground near Malta, but all on board were saved. When they landed, the people of the island welcomed them warmly. While making a fire, Paul was bitten by a viper, but when he failed to die the islanders thought he was a god. Paul hastily corrected their perception, telling them about the power God to save, deliver and heal, through Jesus Christ. The result was a great revival on Malta. The whole island turned to Jesus and many were healed of their infirmities. Nearly 2,000 years later, the island of Malta still enjoys a strong Christian influence.

So often I hear people say that their lives have been shipwrecked by circumstances beyond their control. I think we can safely say that Paul’s shipwreck, as described above, was beyond his control. Yet, God used the circumstances of this apparent disaster to bring many, many into his kingdom and performed miracles of healing, to boot. I think we can safely say that the event of Paul’s shipwreck was well within God’s plan for the apostle’s life.

Acknowledge God in all your ways and he will direct your life’s track. Even through the storms of looming shipwreck, God’s purposes will prevail. God knows the plans he has for you, so have faith in his designs. Keep your eyes on Christ. Look through your shipwreck experience, scorn its shame, and go on to enjoy the blessings God has in store for you. God’s plans are always for your welfare, to give you a future filled with hope.

God-tracking is having faith in God’s plans, even through shipwreck

DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY

Dear Lord, use the circumstances of my difficulties to bring you glory and draw people into a deeper walk with you

“Thank you Lord that my life is in your hands. I acknowledge you in every aspect of my life. And when things go awry I will continue to have faith in you to work out your perfect plans for my life. So, help me to face this looming shipwreck. I choose to keep my eyes on Jesus and his example as he looked through his cross to see himself victoriously sitting on the righthand side of God. Dear Lord, use the circumstances of my difficulties to bring you glory and draw people into a deeper walk with you. Amen.”
