Once upon a time in the city of Nineveh, a strange looking man washed up on shore telling the biggest “fish” story anyone had ever heard. The man’s name was Jonah, and he claimed to be a Hebrew sent by God to save them from God’s judgment.
Why would this Hebrew, who clearly disliked the Ninevehites, risk his life to save theirs?
Besides, he didn’t look like any Hebrew man they had ever seen— no beard and hairless. Not a single hair on his entire body. Dressed in nothing but rags. And oh the smell! He reeked of fish guts.
There was something about Jonah’s story that tugged at your heartstrings. Supposedly, God had told him, “Go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim judgment against it. For their wickedness has come up before Me.” Jonah 1:2
Unbelievable! But the story didn’t end there. Jonah had a warning for the people of Nineveh. “Forty days from now Nineveh will be destroyed!” Jonah 3:4
Nineveh’s inhabitants believed God’s message. From the greatest to the least, they declared a fast and put on burlap to show their sorrow. When God saw what they had done, and how they had put a stop to their evil ways. He changed His mind and did not carry out the destruction He had threatened. Jonah 3:5 and 10
Such is the power of wisdom from Papa’s throne room. There is no partiality with Him because His revelations are not for a select group. You too can receive revelation and wisdom so you may know Him better
I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination. Flooding you with light until you experience the full revelation of the hope of His calling. That is the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that He finds in us, His holy ones!
I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power.
