TAKING A MOMENT

FISH FOOD – Have you ever given much thought to ‘fish food’? Let me rephrase that question – Have you ever given much thought to Jonah? Jonah knew for a fact that God spoke to him. Jonah knew for a fact what the Lord called him to do. And Jonah knew for a fact that he did not want to do it. So, Jonah ran from a specific calling that the Lord placed on his life. Have you ever done that? Has the Lord ever told you something very specifically but it was actually the last thing on earth that you wanted to do? Maybe it doesn’t even make sense to you but you know that Almighty God spoke it. It can happen, and it did happen. Jonah ran and Jonah became fish food. There is no running from God’s plan; even if you run for a thousand miles (I’ve tried it). It will happen, one way or another, in His perfect timing. God will intervene in your life when you run. Instead, place yourself into His hand. Place yourself into obedience unto Him. Stay on the path that He has set before you, or else…or else what? Or else you will become fish food! Jonah 1:3, 4, 17 – V.3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD…V.4 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea…V.17 Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (NKJ) Read all of Chapter 2 to see how Jonah handled being fish food!
