Usually when we hear of someone that is sinning and being disobedient the last thing we'd expect is for them to break out in praise. Consider the following prayer.
I was as far down as a body can go,
and the gates were slamming shut behind me forever
Yet you pulled me up from that grave alive,
O God, my God!
When my life was slipping away,
I remembered God,
And my prayer got through to you,
made it all the way to your Holy Temple.
Those who worship hollow gods, god-frauds,
walk away from their only true love.
But I’m worshiping you, God,
calling out in thanksgiving!
And I’ll do what I promised I’d do!
Salvation belongs to God!”*
Do you know who this is? It's Jonah! After he was throne over board and swallowed by a "big fish", he decided to that he should turn to God. Life is easier and better to follow God's direction from the beginning. Jesus said in John 14:15, 15 “If you love me, keep my commands".
Today and always love Jesus - focus on and be obedient to Him.
