Getting To God-Ordained Appointments

 

TalkingPointing

 

We have appointments to get to in 2015. If we listen to what seems to be apparent and logical and reasonable and live according to those things, it is possible that we will not get to God-ordained appointments. Trying to live by what others say can result in the sad report of Acts 27:20 “all hope was taken away”—that is the point at which people give up and stop trying. For the coming days of our lives we best listen and take Paul’s example and Paul’s instruction who said “I believe God” (Acts 27:25) and “…The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart”… (Rom.10:8, NKJV). Let’s stop trying to live by things said BY OTHERS and start living by things said BY US. (Cf. Prov.15:30; 18:21)

The Foundational Thing: I Believe God

 

Boat_Paul_RomeFrom the stormy Acts 27 account Paul decided, in the midst of a dangerous situation, to not live by things said BY OTHERS. The foundational thing he said was in v.25 “I believe God”. He believed the thing said in v.24 “you must be brought before Caesar”; and HE SAID that thing also. Other things he said that were contrary to what was apparent: v.22 “there shall be no loss”; v.24 “fear not”; v.24 “all will be saved”. All the other 275 people and their authorities (unbelievers) were crying out contrary things but Paul did not live according to what they said; he lived according to what he had been instructed and what he had been instructed, HE SAID. Not only did Paul firmly stand on what HE SAID but, eventually, those in authority began to say what he said and all were saved.
