Acts 18:10 – Verse of the Day 8/28/13
Paul received these words from the Lord in a vision when He was in Corinth. Paul had just experienced the conversion of many Corinthians (18:8), and here the Lord instructs him to persevere in the city for a bit longer and He promises His protection. As a result of this vision, Paul stayed in Corinth for a year and a half (18:11), and as God had promised, He protected Him in spite of the Jewish leaders’ attempts to have him arrested (18:12-17).
God is faithful to his promises. Just as God carried out His promises of protection and fruitful ministry to Paul, He makes similar promises to us. As you pray, consider God’s faithfulness in the past and how you might trust Him more fully in the present. Ask the Lord for a heart to trust His promises.
