Understanding God’s Way

Saturday 27th April 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Jonah 4:1-11

Topic:- Understanding God’s Way

Text:- Jonah 4:3

One day, a man decided to travel by Ship with his friends. While in the middle of their journey, the Boat began to sink. Everyone tried to escape by swimming but it was all in vain.
All drowned except this man who succeeds in clinging to a floating object. With the effect of the strong winds, this thing brought him very far, to a small Island where there were no men or animals, just a few Insects.
With the sweat of his brow, he managed to build a small Box entirely made of Straw. He stayed there for several days eating fruit and began to get used to his new life of suffering. He had already lost all hope of seeing his family again one day.
Every night, he lit a fire in front of his house to warm himself. One evening, as usual, he lit the fire. He stayed there for a long time until he dozed off. Late in the night, he was awakened by an overwhelming Heat. It was his Straw Hut that caught fire.

He cried, cursing God, shouting, “Oh God, what have I done to You to hurt me so? You separated me from my family to bring me to this deserted Island, then you killed all my friends and now you let my Hut burn. Why are you so mean? It is better to die because I am tired of living in this suffering!”
But at dawn, he saw a small Boat coming towards him. When the Boat landed, he ran straight for the Captain and said to him in astonishment, “Captain, how did you get here?” No Boat can get there unless he gets lost.”
He replied, “In the night we saw a fire and we thought it was a burning Boat, and if we did not arrive immediately it was because the journey was long. He used the fire for us to find you.
“The man cried, fell on his knees and asked God for forgiveness, and he got into the Boat and went home.
Lesson learnt in this story is that God has many ways to solve our problems. You can lose a job and think that God has left you when He wants to give you a better job. Your friends can leave you, do not believe that the LORD has rejected you, He wants to keep you away from bad companies. Do not curse your God even if you suffer, keep faith and hope, He will act.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, whatever I’m passing through, let me continue to appreciate You, and never to be ungrateful child, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, let me continue to understand You better henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, perfect what You have started in my for good henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Wonderful Saturday!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
