Gods calling, but how far and long must you run until you do what God has called you to do? Look at Jonah God told him to preach to the city of Nineveh so that they might be save. He said no and it says he even tried to flee the presence of The Lord and not just the city. He didn’t get very far before a fish grabbed him and he had 3 days to sit there before he turned back to God. It took him 3 days of having a self-pity party with himself before he cried out to God.

So what are you running from? No I don’t think God will let you be swallowed by a great big fish. But I do think God will allow other things to come upon you. When you stop running towards him and start running away from Him, that’s when the hedge of protection comes off. So things like sickness, depression, anger, and self-pity start to sink in. God keeps you safe when you are in his will and when others are interceding on your behalf. Gods called you to it, it may be a little scary and different at first but you will not fail, you can not fail. The only person that can stand in your way is you. Put down all of the baggage that weighs you.

So arise oh you sleeper, put life back into those dry bones. Don’t be the watchman that’s caught sleeping during an attack.
