Happiest of Thanksgivings to You All!

We have so very, very much to be thankful for this day.

Indeed, every day!

And sitting here this Thanksgiving morning on my front porch in my rocking chair, I found my praises and my prayers drifting towards you folks - SearchLight family...

What a huge privilege it is to be allowed into your lives via SearchLight to walk with you, alongside of you, as together in the Spirit we travel through the pages of The Scriptures day by day.

I appreciate you all, much more than words can say.

Praising Him,

Jon


Daily Devotional
November 28
 
But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD . . .
Jonah 1:3 (a)
 
Jonah fled from the presence of the Lord out of fear. However, it was not the cruelty of the Ninevites Jonah feared, but the mercy of God toward them. You see, Jonah knew that if the Ninevites turned to God, He would forgive them, and the last thing Jonah wanted was to see the Ninevites blessed. He wanted to see them blasted.

Jonah put patriotism above evangelism. But before we are too quick to judge, we must search our own hearts. What if the Lord said to you, “I have a mission for you: Go to the most anti-American country and give your life to them in My name”? If you’re like Jonah - or me - you would have a very hard time with that request. But our Father says, “I love this world - including all of those who shout, ‘Death to the Great White Satan America.’ You may not understand them, but I do.”

We have to be careful of a “Moral Majority mentality” that says, “America is always right and everyone else needs to see things our way.” We’re part of something bigger than the USA, gang. We’re part of the Kingdom of God; and our King is merciful, compassionate, slow to anger, and desirous that all be saved (2 Peter 3:9).
