Time Alone With God

    Three such experiences of divine encouragement afforded to the apostle, under circumstances of peculiar peril or anxiety, are recorded in the Acts; one when he was “in weakness and in fear and in much trembling” in Corinth, once during the long storm at sea. Comp. analogous experiences in the life of Christ. Paul had come to Jerusalem despite the counsel of prophets and the entreaties of friends; no longer in the presence of immediate danger, suffering the reaction consequent in a man of his temperament from the excitement of the preceding days, unsupported by sympathizing friends, doubts respecting the past, and forebodings respecting the future, may well have combined to produce in him extreme depression. Observe both the form and the significance of the Lord’s words. Paul has declared that he counts his life nothing, so that he may finish his course and his testimony. The Lord declares that he shall finish his course and his testimony, bearing witness in Rome, as he has already borne witness in Jerusalem. The Lord’s answer thus indicates the nature of Paul’s depression to which it was responsive, a fear, not for his life, but lest his prayers to visit Rome are not to be answered. Alford well notes the power of comfort which these words of the Lord possessed, in his subsequent experiences, “(1) in the uncertainty of his life from the Jews; (2) in the uncertainty of his liberation from prison at Caesarea; (3) in the uncertainty of his surviving the storm in the Mediterranean; (4) in the uncertainty of his fate on arriving at Rome. So may one crumb of divine grace and help be multiplied to feed five thousand wants and anxieties.”
