Always remember that God provides what you need. Paul was off to Rome under arrest. They do not have the best travel arrangements for prisoners. He was being sent on a merchant ship, as not much more than cargo. It ran aground on an island, he helped cure the leader of the island and then, they helped arrange the finish of his journey to Rome.

Act 28:10-11 ESV
(10) They also honored us greatly, and when we were about to sail, they put on board whatever we needed.
(11) After three months we set sail in a ship that had wintered in the island, a ship of Alexandria, with the twin gods as a figurehead.

To us separated by time, the twin gods figurehead means nothing. To the people around then it would be the equivalent of traveling on an ocean liner first class today. Or maybe we can put it in talk of cars from today. He started the journey in a compact and finished it in a luxury car.

God provides all the time. Even in our times of trouble.
