The Jonah Call

1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” ~ Jonah 1:1-12

God was concerned about Nineveh. He was going to destroy it because of the wickedness of the people. But He remembered that there were more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons who did not know their right hand from their left, and also much cattle living in Nineveh.

God wanted someone to stand in the gap and go and warm them for Him so that He would not have to destroy the whole city. But Jonah ran away and wouldn’t go.

I wonder, is God calling you to a great revival in your family? Has He asked you to stand in the gap so that He doesn’t have to bring about the threat He has threatened?

Well, God has called each one of us to a specific task and a specific work. But in general, He wants you to witness so that those who we witness to will have an opportunity to hear and believe.

Do not do as Jonah did and run away from your God-given mandate. God wants to be merciful, so help Him to be by witnessing to as many people as possible.

Dear Heaven, thank You that we can be a part of what you are doing in the earth. Thank You that allow us to stand in the gap and see many of our loved ones and friends saved. Pour out Your conviction and your mercy, oh LORD! Touch and save the lost, in Jesus’ name, amen.
