Jonah 1:3 (NKJV)
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.
Nothing is more terrifying than seeing a car racing towards you going in the wrong direction on the freeway. At that moment many lives are in danger. According to recent figures, a large number of fatal accidents on Australian roads are caused by drivers crossing to the wrong side of the road. Many of these drivers are drunk, or distracted by phones etc.
Its always dangerous to go the wrong way. It didn’t work out very well for Jonah, and it won’t work out for us. Is your life headed in the wrong direction? Has satan gotten the better of your judgement? Do you need to make some changes?
Don’t be like the man who said he was making a 360 degree change. Turn exactly 180 degrees. Repent of any and all sin, re dedicate yourself to Jesus in body, mind and soul. As Ezekiel 33:11 says Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?
Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel? Ezekiel 33:11 (NKJV)
Let the Lord help you get out of the wrong lane today.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
