Paul has gone from one major problem to another, all of them threatening death. He escaped the storm only to be shipwrecked. He escaped that only to be bitten by a poisonous snake.
However, Paul believed God in every problem. He knew the problem was an opportunity.
The locals believed the snake would kill him. But Paul SHOOK IT OFF! He doesn’t die, so the locals now change their perspective because Paul’s perspective of a problem was positive. They say “He’s a god!”
This problem is the beginning of a major revival that sweeps the Island of Malta.
Life can seem like a series of problems but they are all just opportunities if we will change our perspective.
