Final Wake-up Call
Jonah 2 Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly of the fish...
So Jonah has been thrown overboard into the raging waters and swallowed by a great fish. It's at this low point that we finally see him wake up and reach out to God. Jonah calls out to the Lord, starting in despair but ending with thanksgiving. And when Jonah concludes, the Lord speaks to the fish and Jonah is spit up on the dry land. Can you even imagine this?
So any Jonah experiences in your past? And, if so, what did you learn from it? What did Jonah's time in the belly of the fish show you about repentance and restoration of relationship with the Lord?Tami W.
