When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all hope of being saved. Acts 27:20

 

After they had gone a long time without food, Paul stood up before them and said: “Men, you should have taken my advice not to sail from Crete; then you would have spared yourselves this damage and loss.” Acts 27:21

 

I urge you to , because not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed. Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve Acts 27:22-23

 

… everyone deserted me … But the Lord and 2 Timothy 4:16-17

 

I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, . Psalm 16:8 NLT

 

“Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve  and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.’” Acts 27:23-24

 

“So keep up your courage, men, for I have that just as he told me.” Acts 27:25

, always ready to help in times of trouble.

 So we will , even if the earth is shaken and mountains fall into the ocean depths; even if the seas roar and rage, and the hills are shaken by the violence. Psalm 46:1-3 GNT
