21 But after long abstinence from food, then Paul stood in the midst of them and said, “Men, you should have listened to me, and not have sailed from Crete and incurred this disaster and loss. 22 And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. 23 For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, 24 saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ 25 Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. 26 However, we must run aground on a certain island.” — Acts 27:21-26.
Paul tells the men that they should have listened to him. But he encourages them and declares that he serves God. An angel has told him that he will arrive at Rome where he has to stand trial. They will all be saved with him but they must run aground on an island. God’s man is the man for the crisis and should be serene when others around are. panicking. [Source: The Bible Panorama.]
