And now I exhort you to be of good cheer; for there shall be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. For there stood by me this night an angel of the God whose I am, whom also I serve, saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must stand before Caesar: and lo, God hath granted thee all them that sail with thee. Acts 27:22-24
Prior to the verses in our opening scripture, Paul had suffered terribly at the hands of the people who took him from one prison to another and tried him in different courts under different kings and governors. Then he decided to appeal to Caesar, the Roman Emperor. It was on the way to Rome that the situation in our opening scripture came up. Before they set sail, by word of knowledge, Apostle Paul told them there would be danger on the way but they didn’t heed him because there was nothing to show that there would be a storm. Soon after they set sail, storm came out of nowhere and hit them terribly. It got so bad that at a point, they threw away all their things into the sea so that they wouldn’t drown but the storm kept beating them. The height of the danger was when they stayed fourteen days without eating or drinking anything. They gave up hope. “…and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.” (Vs 20). Thank God Apostle Paul was in the ship. He brought a word to them from the Heavenly Father through an Angel, which brought great relief, “…there shall be no loss…”
Beloved, I don’t know what your situation has been since the beginning of the year. Have you been battered and bruised, smacked left and right by negative occurrences and hardships? The Word of your Heavenly Father to you today is, “…there shall be no loss…” You are now in the ‘ember’ months when they say evil increases and you are afraid, not knowing what to expect. Again your Father says, “…there shall be no loss…” This time, things will be different.
All you need to do is believe and be close to your prophet. That was what kept the people in the ship safe. Do you believe? How close are you to your prophet? His directions will keep you out of trouble. His word over your life will keep you safe. You can also fan up your spiritual flame and become a ‘mini’ prophet so God can reveal things to you that you can handle without waiting to go through your prophet. Increase your prayer time and fervency, study, fellowship, and never take things for granted. In the face of adversity, keep declaring God’s promises.
Beloved, be rest assured, THERE SHALL BE NO LOSS.
Healed of leg ulcer (Achaere)
My brother was afflicted with leg ulcer (achaere) over 5 years ago. His leg got so swollen that to walk was difficult. When I came to church, I heard many testimonies about the efficacy of the oil of gladness. I got it and took it to my brother. I told him about the power in the oil and he believed. I prayed with him and applied some on his leg. Few days later, he called me on phone and told me that God had healed him. 5 years of affliction came to an end by the reason of the anointing oil. God is faithful. Praise God!
