Stop Running, Start Trusting

"Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like starts in the universe as you hold out the word of life in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing." Philippians 2:14-16

Stop, look and listen!!!
When God whispers we usually ignore and disobeyed Him. The book of Jonah showed how the prophet disobeyed the Lord when he commanded to go to Nineveh to preach to the people. But instead of following Him, Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed to Tarshish. Jonah's disobedience led to a punishment or disciplinary action for what he did. While he was on the ship the Lord send a great wind on the sea and such a violent storm arose that the ship threatened to break up. Jonah knew it is his fault that he was the one to blame because he disobeyed God so he asked the sailors to throw him into the sea and as soon as Jonah's body was in the sea, the storm ceased.Their experienced caused ship's crew to fear God and they offered a sacrifice and made vows to Him. God was not through with Jonah, for he prepared a great fish to swallow him. Jonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights. From within the fish Jonah prayed to God and God heard the prayer of the prophet. Jonah's deliverance brought him to the point of renewed devotion

Let us pause for a while and check ourselves if we are obeying God or still following our own desire. People keep running on responsibilities, commands, tasks and etc. because of fear that they may fail of doing the right thing. If anyone of us are still living in fear, now is the time to cast it out and give your full trust to God. Stop running away from the will of God and start trusting him.

God's plan is always the best.
