God created a world to be enjoyed and filled by all creation. He fellowshipped with Adam and Eve every day, delighting most in their love for and dependence upon Him. However, Satan twisted the words and commands of God, and in so doing, deceived Adam and Eve into believing what God had provided, just wasn’t enough. As we look through key figures in God’s Word, we can see how the curse of sin is alive and well, wreaking havoc in the lives of God’s people; however, there are times the outcome of this great deception served as an agent of change for the unsuspecting… leading them to turn from their active rebellion against God and acknowledge, “He is Enough”.
Rescued by the Heart of God
Jonah’s rebellion ended up getting him thrown into the sea to drown, and in reality, he was getting exactly what he deserved. But once again we see the loving heart of God; that His grace is bigger than our failures. God sent a great fish to swallow Jonah, and although Jonah thought that fish was going to be the death of him, it turned out to be the very thing God used to rescue him. What “fish” is in your life right now that you think is going to be the death of you? That may be the very thing God will use to rescue you!
