God’s provision is near you!

God’s provision is near you!

Acts 28:7 “There was an estate nearby that belonged to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and showed us generous hospitality for three days.”

Publius was Rome’s representative on Malta and Paul. Luke and Aristarchus find themselves being welcomed into a place of luxury for 3 days. Anywhere is luxury after weeks at sea tossed around in a storm, but this was probably the best place to stay on the island. Was it just for the 3 or for all the prisoners? Luke doesn’t say except for 3 days he was there experiencing fine dining.


You may have gone through the biggest storm of your life and you didn’t know exactly where you were but God did! You were so grateful that you found land you didn’t care where it was but God cared!

You see, your haphazard, accidental, fortunate parking of your life battered and bruised was actually within the co-ordinates of your God who cares for you. Nearby …

It could have been anywhere on the island, but it was nearby …

Today you may wake wondering how you will get through this day, God has provision nearby.

Today you may wake wondering if you need to find a new starting point, you don’t, you can start again right now, because nearby …

God is near you all the time!
