Lord make me less like Jonah and more like Jesus. Save me from being the kind of person who cares more about my comfort my reputation and my success than I do about the people You are calling me to serve. Help me to keep all of my dreams on Your altar and be ready at all times to respond with faith and obedience to Your call.
Famous Quotes from Colin S. Smith
There will be times in your life when you want to pray but feel so far from God that prayer seems impossible. The flesh will tell you that God is against you that you have gone too far and that He is no longer interested in you. But faith defies the flesh. It contradicts Satans lies. It rises up against defeat gloom and despair and finds hope in God.
Our culture says live your dream but God calls you to place your dream on His altar and to keep it there at all times. It is good to have hopes and dreams for the future but we have no rights. There are no certainties. Any dream can become an idol and if it does God will bring it down.
