God’s Miraculous Provision

In that area was an estate of the chief man of the island, named Publius, who had welcomed us and courteously housed us for three days. It happened that the father of Publius lay sick with a fever and dysentery. Paul visited him and, placing his hands on him, prayed and healed him. When this happened, the rest on the island who had diseases also came and were healed. They honored us in many ways. And when we sailed, they provided us with necessary supplies.
- Acts 28:7-10

Today's devotion comes from our Decade of Dominion: 52 Week Devotional.

Paul and his companions were shipwrecked on the island of Malta. They had lost all their possessions when the ship was torn to pieces by the violence of the storm, and were left with nothing but the clothes on their backs. However, God had a plan for Paul.

We don’t know how long Paul was there (it was probably a few months, since sailing was suspended in the winter due to weather), but by the time he left, the Maltese provided him with everything he needed to complete his journey to Rome.

Regardless of how desperate your condition may seem; God has not forgotten about you. He still has a plan to provide for you, even when it seems that the storms of life have stranded you in difficult straits.

Take courage from Paul’s example. Even though he was in unfamiliar surroundings and without natural means among strangers, he did not give up and moan about how bad things were. He continued to minister to those who had needs around him, and God did miracles of healing through him. People responded to Paul’s ministry with genuine generosity. He arrived on the island with nothing, and left with all he needed.

Just as God had a plan for Paul, He also has a plan for you. It may seem as though your life has been wrecked, but don’t give up. You may have what looks like nothing now, but if you will continue to look for opportunities to help others, God will provide everything you need to finish your journey. It may appear as though you have been overcome, but you can still be an overcomer!
