It is not an enemy who taunts me— I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me— I could have hidden from them. Instead, it is you—my equal, my companion and close friend. What good fellowship we once enjoyed as we walked together to the house of God.
Psalm 55:12-14 (NLT)

More often than not, it is those closest to us who we have the ability to hurt and who have the ability to hurt us. So, be intentional in relationships, mend hurts and heal division.

But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD.

Today we visit Jaffa, Israel formerly known as Joppa, where Jonah disobeyed the Lord and was swallowed by a whale! May this graphic reminder keep us motivated to be obedient!

If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.
Genesis 4:7 (NIV)

Be on guard! Sin is literally crouching at your door. Ask for the strength and grace to rule over it.

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
Psalm 46:10 (ESV)

Too often we insist on a fanatic lifestyle regardless of the reason. Perhaps we need to be distracted from reality, to keep from being lonely, or perhaps because we possess an excessively driven nature. Don’t forget the instruction of this passage.

All who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
John 10:8,10 (NLT)

Anyone or anything trying to lead you somewhere that is against God’s will is a thief, whose intention it is to kill, steal and destroy. Listen for His voice, and follow.
