Today’s Reading:

Jonah 4:1-4

“And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than six scores thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand: and also, much cattle?”

(v. 11, KJV)


The Lord has different vessels of honour which He uses at one time or the other to pass information to His children. These are the messengers of God. A messenger is a person who runs an errand for someone who is superior to him or her. In this context, it was Jonah that God sent to His people in Nineveh that He wanted to save. As the message of God came to Jonah, he decided on what to do on his own and refused to carry out the message.

On his own, he decided to run away to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. Eventually, God forced him to deliver His message to the people of Nineveh. God made Jonah be swallowed by big fish during the tempest in the sea, which later vomited him at the shore of the Nineveh. He spread the gospel, but God planted it in the lives of His people, and they likewise took it over from there even their king (Jonah 3vs4-10) inclusive.

This is to confirm that God works in spite of the messenger if such messenger refused to carry out the assignment given to him or her by God. It is God that does His work not man. When you become a true messenger of God your voice becomes recognised in heaven. You will always get divine assistance in time of need, you become the apple of God's eyes, His anointed, spokesperson, beloved, Oracle of God. Difficult things become easy for you, enjoy life here on earth as in heaven and eternity in heaven is sure.

Therefore, any opportunity we have in the house of God to serve Him let us make utmost use of it.




  1. I shall not be rejected by God in the name of Jesus.

  2. The power that wants me to hate what God loves, die in the name of Jesus.

  3. Power to love at all times according to the will of God fall upon Christian homes in the name of Jesus.

  4. Oh God arise and deliver me from satanic mind manipulation in the name of Jesus.
