DON’T RUN FROM GOD
This terrified them and they asked, “What have you done?” (They knew he was running away from the Lord, because he had already told them so.)
Like Jonah we sometimes run from God. We know it is the wrong thing to do but yet we run far from God only to suffer as a result of out disobedience.
Verses to meditate on today
The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God. But now, all you who light fires and provide yourselves with flaming torches, go, walk in the light of your fires and of the torches you have set ablaze. This is what you shall receive from my hand: You will lie down in torment.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
Song for my day
Hillsong (Forever Reign)
Today let me take heed to the call of God. I have run away from God several times in the past. Let me learn from my mistakes and obey God.
