It reminds me of Jonah. God gave Jonah an assignment that Jonah chose not to do. He skipped out and did his own thing instead. It didn't take long for God to get Jonah's attention and for him to realize that God meant business. Me? I've been doing my own thing with the blog and not submitting to the unction of the Holy Spirit. So....here I am today asking forgiveness for neglecting my assignment.
We all make choices....every day. Just like Jonah and I made choices to go our own way, so you have decisions to make as well. Each choice takes us through a different door. Some doors are enticing, drawing you to walk right through them. Other doors bring out the curiosity in us, attracting us by obscuring what is behind it.
Then there are the doors that you can see through clearly, know exactly what is on the other side, and walk through them with your eyes wide open.
Other doors persuade your thinking with the allure of prosperity by their beauty and ornate style.
God gives us free will to make our own choices and decisions. When we choose our own way, we move out of God's plan for our life. The selection we make can steer us away from a blessing or towards one. What door is presented to you today, This Day to walk through? Be discriminate and seek God who will satisfy your desires.
Peace and Joy,
Jonah 2:7 (NIV) "When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.
