We Don't Need to be Like Jonah

In answer to the question, "... why is it that so many times we need to have that "belly of the fish" experience before we fully recognize and surrender to God?"

We can be open at all times to God's will, and be willing to follow it, knowing that it is good and pleasing and perfect (Romans 12, 1-2). We now have something to know this that Jonah did not have -- we have God's complete written word, and we have the Holy Spirit to convince us it is true and to be trusted. By His word we can be confident that whatever God calls us to, He will also equip us to accomplish. We must always pray that we would have discernment to see His will for our lives, the courage to do it, and the persistence to stick with it.

Pray it for me, if you would.

Take Care
