The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”
But Jonah ran away from the Lord… (Jonah 1:1-3)
I talk a good game.
I say that I wish God would just be clear, tell me exactly what he wants of me.
You know what I’m talking about. You’re praying, asking for God’s guidance, and you get an answer. A full-blown, here’s-what-I-want-you-to-do-Kid sort of answer. You know it in your heart.
It’s not the answer you wanted.
In fact, it’s totally wrong.
So you run.
Oh, you may not hop a ship to Tarshish, but you run.
Why is it that when we say “Thy will…” we usually mean, “My will…?”
Beloved, as we head into Wednesday, let’s try a little experiment.. Let’s pray that God would use us—no strings attached. However, wherever and with whomever he chooses. Let’s lay ourselves at his feet and await his command. And then let’s follow.
Yeah, I know it’s a scary concept, but we trust him.
Happy Wednesday, Beloved.
