Acts chapter 27 beginning at verse 20, “Now when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest beat on us, all hope that we would be saved was finally given up. But after long abstinence from food, then Paul stood in the midst of them.”
The moment finally came, when all on this ship realized that human effort couldn’t save them. Having ignored the words that God had sent to them, they had chosen, as others before them, to follow their own reasonings on their forward journey. In America today, we’re now facing the storm of our own incivility and moral bankruptcy. Our society is now in crisis and rapidly disintegrating. It was at this point in our opening text that the people’s ears opened again to the Word of God. Pray for America’s ears and hearts to open to God again soon.
It’s time to pray!
