”Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time”  [Jonah 3:1]

Aren’t you glad you and I serve a God of the second chance—and then some!  Think about it.  The eternal Word of God once spoken has no place to go until it settles into the heart of a child of God and there it lies until it germinates. ”…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” [Isaiah 55:11]

When the time is perfect, when the season is right the Word of God bursts through the boundaries of unbelief—God the Father sighs and smiles with pleasure as action alters man’s course—and something changes!  “When we have become rightly related to God, it is the trail of our faith that is precious” [Oswald Chambers]

If the promise of God is breaking through, struggling to come to birth—keep pushing, keep pressing in, keep preparing, be fully persuaded like Abraham who,  ” …was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” [Hebrews 4:20-21]
