Subject: April 12th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Fear not, Paul; thou must stand before Caesar; and lo, God hath granted thee all them that sail with thee. Acts 27.24.

He who really has God’s promise is usually restful and calm in his demeanor, for to him that promise is as good as realized. When Paul met with danger from the sea on his journey to Rome, he could stand among his fellow passengers and declare: “Sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even so as it hath been spoken unto me.” Let us further observe that “when he had said this, and had taken bread, he gave thanks to God in the presence of all; and he brake it, and began to eat.” Such was Paul’s attitude towards the promise of God. This created such a deep impression on his fellow passengers that they were “all of good cheer, and themselves also took food” (v.36).
