“He Will Hide me in His Shelter”
Paul had a God-ordained appointment to get to. He was traveling in a ship that was in the middle of a storm and the ship was in danger of sinking. Other people were making decisions about that journey and about that ship and were saying things that were in agreement with what was apparent in the present set of circumstances. In Acts 27:17 experienced seamen were “fearing” and in v.20 things had escalated to the point that the report is “all hope was taken away”. In v.11 the centurion had already listened to something said by an experienced sea captain and was putting 276 people in peril for their lives and v.12 says “the majority favored the plan of putting to sea”. Experienced people and the majority put the loss of the ship and everyone’s life in peril because “someone said”.

Jesus first said, “Go” (Mt 28:19), then in v.20 He announced: I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. We have a future that is guaranteed by our commissioning. We are commissioned to continue going until the very close and consummation of the age. There is, therefore, no let up and no decrease. Our Lord said “Go” but has not said, “Come back.” We will speak the language of commissioned ones. We will continue to go into the geographical spheres and to people groups where He gives us power of influence, and we will continue to go into the future with preparation and expectancy.
…He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] 6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? (Heb 13:5-6)
