There are many people that have strayed from the Lord. There are even more people who have never found the Lord. We might even be one of these people. Many of us, at least one time in our life, have turned away from the Lord. We all have sinned and gone astray. We may even have done some pretty awful things in the sight of God. Living a life of sin is heavy on our soul. It delivers up feelings of shame and guilt. All seems lost until we call upon the Lord in repentance. If our heart is sincere He will have mercy upon us and we will be forgiven. He no longer sees us as we were before for we are delivered from bondage. Because our hearts are open He is able to find rest in our soul. Our lives are renewed for we are born again. How amazing would it be for us to touch another person’s life. The Lord desires that all of His faithful witness His truths to the world. Let all the world know that Jesus saves. Do not judge people for we were once in a similar state as them. Don’t run away from the Lord’s calling but seek to follow Him in all things.
Love is the key ingredient in the Lord’s plan. It has power to convict the most wicked heart. The Lord desires that we share His message out of love. If we lean on Him, hearts will be convicted of the truth. Lives will be changed for God’s love is the most powerful of all. His Words have power to pierce us to the heart. Lean on the Lord’s understanding and not your own. You may know the Bible but without seeking Him, your will, will be done and not His. Let all things be done for God’s glory. Let your heart be filled with love that His love may show in your speech. Proclaim His Words for they are lifesaving. Tell everyone about the saving grace of our Lord. Have a heart to share His message with others. We are His vessels to share His gospel. The Lord desires that all are saved. Oh Lord, wherever you lead me I will go. Whatever I can do for you I will do it. If you ask that I share your message with someone I will run to them. There will be no restraints. I will press on to do your will. With you by my side I can do all things. No matter the cost I will follow You. I will never stop loving You. I run to You for You are everything to me.
1 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me.”
3 But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.
4 But the Lord sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be broken up.
