Euroclydon

Euroclydon

Good morning brethren
We have come back to our homes, having been driven by the "Euroclydon" called Matthew, that blew our ships up and down the east coast of our country for the past week. I am reminded of the voyage of the apostle Paul in Acts 27 where it is stated in verse 15, " And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive." Let's look at chapter 27 of the book of Acts for our devotion today, and we will by the grace of God get back to our study of the Psalms of degrees on Thursday.
Sometimes the winds of storms get so fierce that all we can do is retreat to the place of prayer and seek the Lord, that if we can't "save the ship", at least show us thy mercies to "Save all those who sail with us" (vss. 20-25).
The Lord allows the storms to help us see that the most important (or precious) things in our lives aren't the "tackling of the ship" (worldly securities vs. 19),nor is it the " wheat of our cargo" ( jobs and commodities vs. 38) ; all these things are expendable, but the Real treasures of life are the "Souls" that are in our ships, and there lives that need to get "safe to land" (vss. 37+44).
And just as God helped through the prayers of Paul to save those who sailed with him though their storm, and had such experience of the great losses and fearful times that "all hope that they would be saved was taken away" (vs. 20), God gave Paul, through his prayers, "All them who sailed with him" to escape to the Island of Melita !
Glory to God, if he Will but give us the Souls who sail with us brethren, this world can Have this Ship and all it's "Tackle", "Wheat ", and it's" Lifeboats " too (vss. 30-32), just let us have the Souls who Sail with us, and let us All escape to the Land of " Melita ", for the name Melita means " Affording Honey "!! Oh Yeah, Lord, let us All Escape to the land that" Flows with milk and Honey ".
Lord bless you children
