Wake Up Call
Jonah 1:17-2:10 And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights...
So Jonah has been thrown overboard into the raging waters and swallowed by a great fish. It's at this rock bottom, low point that we finally see him wake up, snap out of it, and reach out to God. At first, Jonah calls out to the Lord in despair, but as he continues to pray his attitude turns to one of thanksgiving. When Jonah concludes, the Lord speaks to the fish and Jonah is spit up onto the dry land. Pretty incredible on a number of levels.
So what did Jonah's time in the belly of the fish show you about repentance? What about restoration of relationship with the Lord? Tami
