    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desir...

    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

    He told them this parable. 'Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it?'

Rock Bottom

  • And the LORD appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly of the fish, saying, I called out to the LORD, out of my distress, and he answered me Jonah 1:16 ESV

    Sitting in the black darkness all alone, Jonah contemplated his situation from the inside of a great fish. The Lord had told him to go preach, but Jonah decided to do something else entirely, and went the other way. In time, his past caught up with him and swallowed him alive. Now it looked like the end. He had disobeyed, and this was his punishment. He deserved it, it is over, 'bout as well lay down and die.

    Then some spark of hope arose in Jonah, as his life was fainting away (2:7) he prayed to the Lord and God changed his circumstances. God spoke to the fish and it took Jonah back to the land and spit him out. Peter thought that he had wrecked his life as well when he denied even knowing the Lord Jesus three times in one night (Mark 14:72), but the Lord restored him.

    I am not saying that sin and running away from God is alright. I am saying that with a simple prayer, you can make it right. Sometimes when we run from God, He will allow us to hit rock bottom. Then when we turn to Him, He will help us. It is never too late, because God's love has no limits. It is never too late, because when you hit rock bottom, He can restore you just as He did Jonah, Peter and me.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, pick me up when I fall. Blow your breath on the fire within me and cause me to stand firm on Your word, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
