00491 - Are You The Captain Of Your Ship?

Navigating the storms of life often prompts us to ask: Are we the captains of our own ships, able to steer through tumultuous waters, or are we mere passengers at the mercy of every gust and wave?

In 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV), Paul shares the Lord's assurance to him: "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." This pivotal verse reminds us that our ability to be captains doesn't solely rely on human skill or resolve but is profoundly influenced by our faith in God. When we are battered, God's grace steps in to steady the ship, offering us the strength to navigate even the most challenging circumstances.

With God in your ship of life, it’s not merely guided by your hands but directed by God’s intervention in the storm. Always remember He was the captain of your life long before you were.


Always remember God is the ultimate captain of your life.


Teach me Your ways, Lord, that I would not be tossed around by life. Amen.

Action Point

Pray into 2 Corinthians 12:9 and ask God, to let His grace and strength envelop you.
