SAA Notes

It is wonderful to know that God can do what you or I can’t – in this case, arrange for 70 cavalry and 200 foot soldiers to bring His Apostle to safety, on his long road to Rome. What small or great providences can you recount from your own life?

SJA Notes

* God of Light, please shine the light of Your word into our hearts today.

“Paul called one of the centurions and said, ‘Take this young man to the tribune, for he has something to tell him.'”

Notice Paul’s immediate action on hear what his nephew had to say, sending him to the local law.

Paul acted right and true, within a secular government (think of the Roman empire), trusting that God would take care of the situation.

This is a good example of trusting in God’s sovereignty for us to think on and wrestle with, to work to uphold in our own lives.

* Gracious God,

Please continue to work within us, Your Spirit refining us as through the fire.

Please continue to uphold this world, for our lives are but breath.

Please continue to strengthen us for each day, for our days are short.

Thank You for Jesus, our King.
