    For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it hurries toward the end, and won't prove false. Though it takes time, wait for it; because it will surely come. It won't delay.

    The king talked with them; and among them all was found no one like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Therefore stood they before the king. In every matter of wisdom and understanding concerning which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchante...

    If you died with Christ from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances, "Don't handle, nor taste, nor touch" (all of which perish with use), according to the precepts and doctrines of men? These things indeed appear like wisdom in self-imp...

Rock Bottom

  • So they took up Jonah and threw him into the sea; and the sea ceased its raging. Then the men feared Yahweh exceedingly; and they offered a sacrifice to Yahweh and made vows. Yahweh prepared a huge fish to swallow up Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then Jonah prayed to Yahweh, his God, out of the fish's belly. He said, "I called because of my affliction to Yahweh. He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried. You heard my voice. Jonah 1:15'2:2 WEB.

    While Jonah sat in the black darkness alone, he contemplated his situation from inside the great fish. The Lord had told him to go and preach to Nineveh. Then Jonah decided to do something else entirely, and he ran the other way.

    In time, his past caught up with him and literally swallowed him alive. Now it looked like the end for him. Jonah had disobeyed, and this was his punishment. He knew he deserved it and probably thought, "It's over. You might as well lay here and die."

    Then some spark of hope arose inside Jonah. As his life ebbed 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 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. Yet, when we turn to Him, He will help us. It's never too late, for God's love has no limits. He can restore you just as He did with Jonah, Peter, and me.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please pick me up when I fall. Blow your breath on the fire within me. Help me stand firm on Your word. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.' (John 5:14) ~ 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
