FROM THE PASTOR'S HEART

From God’s Word to Our Heart!

“Running from God?”

Jonah 1:10 Then the men were exceedingly afraid, and said to Jonah, “Why have you done this? “For the men knew that Jonah fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.”

Are you running from the LORD? God called Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach to the wicked Ninevites. Jonah hated them! He did not want to go and preach the word God had given him. Jonah knew if they repented God would forgive them and not destroy them. Jonah wanted them all dead! Jonah rebelled against God’s call and went to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.

Is God calling you to do something for Him? Are you running from the Lord rather than running to the Lord? King David asks the question in Psalm 139:7: “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?” Let’s face it. God is Omnipresent! God knows us and calls us even as He did Jonah. We can not run from God. We must stop and return before God puts us in the belly of our own great fish.”

“Here I am oh Lord! What is your will?” Amen.
