Ahoy there and welcome back to Daily
Bread! As you remember, we have a man overboard in our story, but usually
that means that someone accidentally fell in the water. This wasn't the
case in this instance. That man overboard was the prophet Jonah himself and
he was purposely thrown into the water. He was hiding from the Lord so he
wouldn't have to go to Nineveh and preach to the people there as God
commanded him, who were overcome with evil. Jonah didn't wanna go to
Nineveh because he figured that in the end, God would just forgive the
people anyway, so why go through all the trouble. His presence on the ship
brought about a terrible tempest that was about to destroy the ship and all
that were on it, so with prayers of mercy, the people on the ship, tossed
Jonah into the sea.
JONAH'S PRAYER LESSON WITH JONAH'S PRAYER EXPLANATION AND JONAH'S PRAYER
Well, Jonah was swallowed up by a
whale, and at first you may think this is a terrible thing, but let's go
back and digest this part of Chapter 1 verse 17 a little bit. Now the Lord
had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. What does it mean, He
prepared the fish? God actually provided protection for Jonah inside
the whale, He wasn't making bait out of Jonah.
Jonah has a little change of spirit
during his stay within the Lord's special accommodations for him and he
realizes the seriousness of God's command. He knew that the alternative was
drowning in the sea and he praised the Lord from out of the whale's belly:
"I cried to the Lord because of my distress and He heard me, out of the
belly of the grave I cried, and you heard my voice. You had thrown me into
the deep, in the middle of the seas and floods surrounded me. All your
winds and waves passed over me. Then I realized, I am cast out of your
sight, but I will still seek you. The waters compassed me about, even to
the soul, the depth closed around me, the seaweeds were wrapped around my
head. I went down to the floor of the ocean, the earth imprisoned me for
ever, still, you brought up my life from death, O Lord my God. When my soul
fainted inside me I remembered the Lord and my prayer came in to you, in
your holy temple. Those who are foolish give up their own mercy. But I
will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving, I'll pay what I've
promised. Salvation is from the Lord."
JONAH'S PRAYER INFORMATION WITH JONAH'S PRAYER MEANING AND
JONAH'S PRAYER DISCUSSION
Haven't we all, as Christian found ourselves in the spiritual darkness and
felt out of the presence of the Lord? At times like these we can take a
valuable lesson from what Jonah did and pray. The Lord loves humility in a person and Jonah's
prayer demonstrated his repentance, so the Lord spoke to the fish, and it
vomited Jonah out onto dry land.He was given another opportunity to perform
the task he had been called to do.
In our next Daily Bread, we'll find
out what happens when Jonah goes to Nineveh, so be sure and join us again!
