Acts 27
27 Now when the fourteenth night had come, as we were driven up and down in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors sensed that they were drawing near some land. 28 And they took soundings and found it to be twenty fathoms; and when they had gone a little farther, they took soundings again and found it to be fifteen fathoms. 29 Then, fearing lest we should run aground on the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern, and [g]prayed for day to come. 30 And as the sailors were seeking to escape from the ship, when they had let down the skiff into the sea, under pretense of putting out anchors from the prow, 31 Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, “Unless these men stay in the ship, you cannot be saved.” 32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the skiff and let it fall off.

So the sailors were going to escape by a small boat pretending to drop anchor. Paul figured it out and pretty much told the centurion, “if they go, ya’ll die.”

When you don’t listen to what God tells you in the first place, your fate is sometimes tied in with someone else’s obedience.

I also love how calm Paul is during this time. He has full trust in the Lord. His faith in God is so strong that worry has no place.
