The Lord is Beside Us

Acts 27:23 “For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve.”


This text brings us to one of the greatest moments in Paul’s leadership.  It was very rare that you see a prisoner on a ship giving orders.  However; God place Paul in a leadership position despite his social position.  The presence of God was very evident to Paul.  I believe that we must become more aware of God’s presence.  Paul had a spiritual depth that recognized the angel of God stood beside him.  The key to this scripture is Paul knew God was on his side.  In the midst of this storm Paul recognized God standing beside him.  Christians must understand that God is on our side.  Many believe that He is against us, but again those storms and dangerous situations God places in our lives are just platforms for God’s greater plan.


Today’s Challenge:  Recognize that God is on your side.  You belong to the Lord, and you serve the Lord.  Regardless of the storm and regardless of the crashes, God is on your side!
