Inspiration comes through challenges and in unusual circumstances:
Suddenly you have a “lightbulb moment”
I entered a Photo Inspiration Challenge about a year ago with this picture below.
This was my inspiration: Jonah spat out of the mouth of the fish and washed ashore.
He had disobeyed God when told to go and preach at Nineveh. He boarded a ship to Tarshish and all hell broke loose on the ship. He knew he was the cause and asked to be thrown into the sea to save the lives of those on the ship. They did and there was a great calm.
Jonah was swallowed by a big fish and there he repented and worshipped God, who had mercy on him and commanded the fish to spit him out. He was then washed ashore as we can see in the picture. Read Jonah Ch1 and 2 for the full gist.
What would your inspiration be?
Go After God.
Live in His Word.
Love His presence,
Cherish His Voice.
Make Him your choice.
Come to Him daily.
Yield to Him truly.
Follow as He leads
To pastures, green field.
Lie down and feed
Until you’re filled.
Forage not in the mud.
Hold tight to His Word;
Let it light your path
And impart to you, strength.
5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deut, 6:5-8
4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Prov4:20-23
