Shipwrecks

SCRIPTURE:  But now I urge you to keep you your courage because not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed.

OBSERVATION:  Sometimes the “vessels” are destroyed, but God protects what needs to remain and continue.

APPLICATION:  Sometimes our vessels (institutions, dysfunctions, thought patterns, etc.) have to be broken down and removed.  When God is involved, this leads into a new way and a new freedom. Becaues the ship was destroyed, Paul and his fellow travelers encountered the grace of God.  Out of chaos, fear, wreckage and destruction everyone was transported into a new place and met the power of God.

PRAYER:  Gracious God, please protect your image in each one of us and hold us in the safety of your hands. When life is like a shipwreck and chaos and fear is strong… please show us the way to Hope. Give us the courage to continue and trust in you.  I love you. Thank you for so many times you brought me safely out of the shipwrecks of life.

YIELD:  Trust God in the shipwrecks.
