Paul's faith, and even the faith of the crew, is amazing to me.
Paul knew God had told him that all the men's lives would be spared, and he had faith that what God promised would come to pass. The circumstances looked bad. The storm was horrific. There was no logical reason to believe God's promise - from a human standpoint, it seemed completely far fetched.
But Paul knew the One who made the promise.
Paul knew He had absolute power over the storm.
Paul knew He had absolute authority over the human lives that He held in His hands.
Paul knew that God is always, always faithful.
And so he calmly broke bread and shared a meal with the terrified crew - trusting in the supernatural that He could not see over the storm that he could see.
I want eyes to see past the storms, through to the all-sovereign, all-powerful, all-loving God and, keeping my eyes on Him alone, trusting His promises with complete and utter faith.
