Title:When you leave His presence.!

Jonah 1: 3”But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.”

When you disobey God, you actually may feel free but you are fleeing from His presence which is very dangerous.  If you watch the bird’s nest , it is so secure, protected, sheltered, pretty sturdy, located in a hiding place far away from the reach of people , but if the baby bird ventures out and strays away from the nest, imagine what would happen!  It would  be open to predators, enemies , bird may fall down and get lost.  Walking away from God’s nest and rest is like walking into a moving train. Caveat!

When Adam and Eve sinned, they lost the presence of God, when Cain sinned he became proud and left the presence of God, when Saul sinned he left the presence of God , hence evil spirits came to dwell inside him which eventually killed him.  Being in the presence of God is like standing in the midst of a rose garden, the aroma of the flowers will surely rub off on you.   Say Amen.  Bilquis Sheikh, a prominent Muslim woman in South Asia, author of ‘I dare to call him Father’ had a wonderful encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ.  The chapter of her encounter with Jesus is described in a breathtaking experience she has in her garden, when she could actually feel the presence of God.  This would give you goose bumps!  This actually leads to her pursuit of Jesus and finally she gets saved and also becomes His servant. 

The presence of God transforms your life!
Jonah was not ignorant of the ways of God, in fact, he was a servant of God, yet, disobedient and he very well knew the consequences of disobedience too.  His disobedience in fact put the other people inside the ship in danger too.   
One disobedient person in the family can hamper and impede the blessings of the entire family and put them into misery as well.  Friend, do not be careless about  obeying God’s commandments, there will be consequences that you may have to face, just like the way Jonah was thrown into the raging sea. This message comes as a caution to make you turn to God!
