In our passage the apostle Paul is facing a storm in his life which he had nothing to do with. He had to face the storm even though he warned the centurion. In 2018 you and I will also have to face storms for various reasons. In this story of the apostle Paul's encounter with a huge storm there are three important principles we find which we should remember as we face the storms of 2018. 1. The storms of life are there for a reason so we need to find the reason. 2. Your reaction to the storm will determine the outcome. 3. The storms of life are under God's control. As you journey through 2018, may these truths help you when you have to face a storm.
