Based on the story of the apostle Paul's near catastrophic shipwreck (see Acts 27-28) , this is a call to individuals to "shake off" problems and disasters in life and move forward to new health and wholeness.

Some days you feel as if you take one step forward only to fall back two—or ten— steps. You struggle and push through one obstacle after another. You know God is present, but when is he going to rescue you from all the storms, shipwrecks, and snakes surrounding you? The apostle Paul faced a great crisis such as this on his epic voyage to Rome, which ended with a disastrous shipwreck—yet every person aboard was saved by grasping broken pieces of wood.

In Shake Free, Samuel Rodriguez issues a powerful call for you to shake off your problems. He writes, “When the storm breaks in your life, you will be driven by: 
• the past or the future
• the pathetic or the prophetic
• problems or promises
• nightmares or dreams
• the flesh or the Spirit
• Google searches or godly churches
• the drama of the storm or God’s destiny for your life.”

Rather than merely surviving circumstances, you can discover how to navigate through life’s challenges to truer wholeness and bigger victories from God.

“In Shake Free Sam Rodriguez uses one of the more detailed events in the New Testament—the apostle Paul’s incredible sea journey that ended in a shipwreck—to reveal how anyone caught up in a life journey that appears headed for catastrophe may find the way to safety and spiritual growth. Just as Paul ‘shook off’ the viper that threatened his life, so we, through the power of the Spirit, can shake off the problems and challenges that are keeping us from true freedom in Christ.”
