🤔🤔🤔 Thinking of the story of Jonah. He is #called
upon by God to travel to Nineveh and warn its residents to repent of their sins #OR
face divine wrath. Instead, Jonah boards a ship to Tarshish. Caught in a #storm,
he orders his shipmates to cast him overboard, whereupon he is swallowed by a giant fish. Three days later, after Jonah #agrees
to go to Nineveh, the fish vomits him out onto the shore. Jonah #successfully
convinces the entire city of Nineveh to repent, but waits outside the city to await its destruction. God shields Jonah from the sun with a plant, but later sends a worm to cause it to wither. When Jonah complains of the bitter heat, God rebukes him.
For the past couple of years I've been seeing and hearing of many Believers and Non #Quote #Unquote....... #GoingThru.
Could it be that some of us are in the positions we are in simply because of #Disobedience?
We've been in some hard, tough places and can't seem to get out. Our circumstances are only becoming more trying and not better.
Could it be that you have been #Swallowed
up in the fishes mouth; i.e. #Sickness
in your body, #financial
at work; because of your disobedience? God doesn't cause it.....but He will allow it!........ #QUESTION
Is God waiting on your #YES?
When Jonah finally told the Lord yes.....3 days later He was free. Do you know it doesn't take God as long as it takes us to perform the thing that He's promised?
#GOD #RESPONDS #TO #OBEDIENCE.
It's so easy to remain comfortable in our self-sufficient lives, not caring about others, watching the news and saying "Awww, that's so sad!" When will we become the change we want to see?" We #Admire
others who at one point in their lives felt very uncomfortable (🙋🏽👈🏾) using their voice to uplift and encourage others....but when will that #ADMIRATION
become #MOTIVATION? #PAIN
will force you to open your mouth!
DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHY YOU WERE CREATED?
