Persecuted, but Not Forsaken
Wes McAdams   -  

Paul finally made it to Rome, after a journey that took several months. While in Rome, waiting to stand trial before Caesar, Paul was confined to a house that he paid to use. But in spite of his chains, the word of God was not bound (see 2 Timothy 2:9). The word of God continued to be preached to both Jews and Gentiles, even while Paul was a prisoner. When we can’t go where we want and do what we want, we can sometimes believe the lie that God has forsaken us. But maybe we are right where we need to be and God is right here beside us, as he promised he would be. (Scripture: Acts 28:23-31)
