Wednesday, July 26th: Psalms 40-42, Acts 27: 1-26 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalms 40-42, Acts 27: 1-26

Psalm 40:4
Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.


It's easy in times of trouble to look for a quick fix and turn to the first source of answers we can find. But this will often lead to more trouble.

Here we read the importance of trusting in the Lord, relying on Him, and waiting for Him to show us the way.

Acts 27: 22, 25
(22)But now I urge you to keep up your courage, because not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed.
(25) So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me


Bad news/good news.

After working hard for several days to save the ship and cargo, Paul gave the crew this news. The ship would be destroyed, but the men would all live.

Sometimes in life we're also presented with a case similar to this, we may lose all we've worked for, and this can be devastating. But we need to remember our main strength and root, which is God, and He loves us and cares for us. We know that in the end things will be a lot better for us, if we keep faithful to Him.

Yes, we need to remember to trust in God, no matter the good/bad situation.

Psalm 42:2 my soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

We are created with a thirst that can only be quenched by God Himself.
