Finally, after 3 years of imprisonment at Ceasarea, Paul was on his way to Rome. Paul and all the prisoners with a detachment of soldiers set out to sea. They sailed along the coast and switched to another ship headed to Rome. Winter was coming on and they needed to sail as quickly as they could. Paul told the Centurion that they shouldn’t sail on because of a storm coming. He told them they would lose the ship. But they didn’t believe Paul and sailed anyway. 2 days out the storm came. They couldn’t make any headway. So much so, they began throwing cargo overboard. After 14 days, they anchored near an island. An angel appeared to Paul and told him that all must stay on board to save their lives. They decided to make the run to land. The ship ran aground and broke apart. They all swam to shore in a safe haven. Just because you belong to God doesn’t mean that you won’t suffer tribulation. But God said with every trial, He will always make a way of escape. God also said, in this world you will suffer tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.
