Observation: What a calm Paul experiences in the midst of a storm and it is all due to knowing that God had spoken about what would happen and Paul believed God’s word.
Question: Why did a poisonous snake bite not make Paul sick? It seems obvious that neither the storm nor the snake was going to stop God’s plan of getting Paul to Rome. God also often uses miracles for a bigger purpose and it certainly began a bigger story of God using His power to bless Paul and others on this island.
Application: Trust that God is always faithful to His word.
Prayer: Father, You have all power to heal now as You did then. I pray for healing in the lives of those around me today.
