But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship. For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island. But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country; And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms. Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day. And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship, Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved. . . . And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
Living Victoriously happens as a result of us deciding and acting to LIVE according to the promises of God. You and I declaring and taking action on what should be as declared by God releases us from the circumstances of our lives to LIVE, despite and in spite of what is. The journey to what we believe should be will not be a walk in the park but a preparatory phase, developing and maturing us to overcome and win! God has declared for us life and life more abundantly and with our faith in the Word of God for our lives that brings His promises to pass is the saving agent that must be applied in and through our circumstances. Although we will experience difficulties and rough terrain, if we stay on board, even in what was comfortable very well may break up, we will get to our place of promise. God has promised us that we would have life, the journey or the steps to it will conform to that Word and will from time time also dissolve but rest assured God has a plan and purpose and what was may not make the whole journey but we will and safely get to His promise and awaiting is the new. God, who is Divine and has all things in His power and control has assigned unto you His purpose and plan and will intervene on your behalf ensuring you land to His promises. Stay connected, Living Victoriously through your circumstances and all will be well for you and everything and everyone connected to you. Let God flow through you and your assignment and His intervention will assure that you will get to your promise even if on broken pieces and all with you to the life and life more abundantly promised.
