For last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve came to me and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul! You must stand before Caesar, and God has graciously granted you the safety of all who are sailing with you.’ Therefore keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will be just as I have been told.
[Acts 27:23-25 NET]
An active faith can give thanks for a promise, though it be not yet performed; knowing that God’s bonds are as good as ready money.
~ Matthew Henry ~
