What you feel is an attack is actually a series of events stayed by My hand. This is not a coincidence it is ME, creating an earthquake around you. I AM purposely shaking up all that you know and trust.
This will be a norm until you quit, Jonah. You cannot run, swim, lie or cry your way out of this. I formed you, I called you and I shaped you for a particular moment. This is about filling and fulfilling the mandate on your life.
The filling is to answer MY calling with exuberance and move with a sense of urgency. The fulfilling is to completely extinguish all that I have place in you, to leave this world empty and transformed.
The work you have done, the places you have been and the relationships you hold are all tools, a means to an end, MY divine ends. From today forward your focus must be ME and ME alone. Your passions and your purpose must become singular.
To the roots of the mountains I descended;
the earth beneath me barred me in forever! But You raised my life from the pit, O LORD my God! As my life was fading away, I remembered the LORD. My prayer went up to You, to Your holy temple. Those who cling to worthless idols forsake His loving devotion. But I, with the voice of thanksgiving, will sacrifice to You. I will fulfill what I have vowed. Salvation is from the LORD!” And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
