(Jonah 1:4-5) But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. Then the Mariners were afraid and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them
In continuation of the sharing with you yesterday, I want you to know that life is too precious to be lived anyhow. You need to carefully choose your friends so as not to have Jonah in your boat of life. If Jonah is in your boat of life, wasteful living is inevitable, disaster is certain, shipwreck is imminent and collosal loss is by the corner. We sometimes try to hold on to people who are not meant to be in our life in the first place while suffering hardship, thinking that if we persist , we would be able to surmount the hardship and make headway. The person could be running away from his/her at your camp, your destiny begins to nosedive.
It is okay to let go of certain people at a point in time. It does not make you a bad person, you could be redirecting them on the path that they are supposed to be treading on. As a believer, you need God’s guidance, if he says, let go …..do so. You would be helping the person; and you would also be sparing yourself hardship not even meant for you.
Abraham had to let go before God could speak to him. Ensure there is no Jonah or lot in your journey of Life. Because if they are, you are bound to suffer loss.
Commit every person in your life to God. Let him direct your dealing with them. Weather to keep them close, let them go or help put them on the right track, ask for his guidance and don’t be afraid to act on it promptly. You could be saving someone’s life and destiny.
