But the officer in charge of the prisoners listened more to the ship’s captain and the owner than to Paul.
(Acts 27:11 NLT)
Earlier, Paul had warned the men on the boat that the voyage was going to be disastrous and bring great loss to the ship and cargo, and to their own lives, but his warning was ignored. The result? The ship was eventually destroyed, but thankfully, the people’s lives were spared. Sometimes, when we can’t hear God, He uses others to deliver His message. Sadly, the men on the ship realized this after the shipwreck. Listen to what God might be trying to tell you through someone else before it’s too late.
God often uses others to deliver His message.
