God bless you,
Today I’ll write about the fact that disobedience sometimes cause you to hide and in the process cause a storm for those around you. I’ll give 2 biblical example and 1 natural example of this matter in the rest of my writings.
First example is out of the story of Adam and Eve. Now you probably know their story.. Eve did ate from the forbidden tree and afterwards gave Adam to eat from it as well. Than in Genesis 3:8 the bible says they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden but they hid themselves because the were naked. Adam and Eve were disobedient toward God, they went hiding from God but knew where they where at. The Lord God said there will be enmity between thy seed and her seed. And so we can read in chapter 4 that Eve conceived Cain and Abel and that Cain murdered Abel. Because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve there was a storm going on in their family line.
The 2nd example is the story of Jonah (1). God’s voice came to Jonah and said unto Him: “ Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.” vs. 2. But instead of doing so Jonah fled to Tarshish and went to Joppa where he found himself a ship and went on board. Jonah was hiding from the presence of God. But God already knew what Jonah was up to so He sent a great wind that cause a storm. This storm was made to break down the ship. As for Jonah he didn’t help the mariners. He went down in the ship and sleep. The came unto him and said why aren’t you helping and prayin’ to your god to cause this storm to pass? As you can read in the story they cast a lot to see who is the one that causes that evil upon them. They started to ask Jonah all kind of question but whence they heard that he was a Hebrew they knew he was fleeing from God’s presence. At first they didn’t know what to do but then Jonah said it is my fault that this is happening throw me off board and the storm will pass. The man prayed God for their lives but they didn’t want to have the blood on their hands neither. They threw Jonah off board and God had a big fish prepared to swallow Jonah where he was for 3 days and night. After this God gave Jonah a second chance.
Today you can pray ask forgiveness and let God give you a second chance. Doesn’t matter where you have been at, what you have done. God is ready to redeem you, to set you free and to prepare you and order your steps for the greater.
Now a days in church you get a task, but you are not that happy with it. You can’t settle because it is not what you want. You get a attitude, cause disturbance and cause a whole team to get against each other, a whole group can fall apart because of this attitude. Please be obedient in the position God has placed you. If you can handle little God will multiply and at more unto you. You will get a promotion. In God’s Kingdom we must be humble in whatever we to an get rit of bad attitudes. Rebellious attitude, a attitude that says I know better, because it wil cause you to fall hard.
If you have been here and you walked out from church, God is seeking you to give you a second, maybe third, forth…. chance. To be obedient.
I hope you have been blessed.
With loving regards,
