Jonah Chapter 3

Blessings Everyone!

I pray that you all are being Obedient in what thus says the Lord our God concerning you.

This third chapter in the book of Jonah had me realizing a thing or two about how big our brains make things seem. We will talk ourselves out of doing something great in a micro minute, just because fear jumped in. That feeling of being unworthy can choke the life out of your purpose.

I can only assume that it was fear of something that kept Jonah out of Ninevah. He might have feared that no one would listen to him or he could have feared being over turned by the wickedness. That fear took him straight in to disobedience right into the belly of the great fish.

Jonah Chapter 3

Jonah goes to Ninevah

The chapter starts off by saying; The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time. The Lord told Jonah to go to Ninevah and deliver the message He game him the first time.

This time Jonah was obedient. The word tells us that Ninevah was a very large city and it took three days to go through. On the first day in Jonah began proclaiming what the Lord said which was in forty days the city of Ninevah will be overthrown.

The people of Ninevah believed God, they started to fast and put on sackcloth from the youngest to the oldest, from the richest to the poorest.

I couldn’t help but notice all the trouble Jonah caused himself, being in the belly of a great fish for three days and three nights and his task was so easy.

We are just like that, God gives us an assignment and we run from it. we keep running into barriers, we find our =selves stuck in the tornado’s of crazy life lessons. Then we find out the thing that we were so afraid of the thing that the Lord had shifted us to go wasn’t that bad, it was actually the easiest thing to do.

For Jonah the people believed the message he had from God, they went right to repenting and mourning.

verse 6-10

The word says when Jonah’s message reached the king. The king took off his robes and put on sackcloth, the word says that the king sat down in the dirt. The king issued a proclamation;

Everyone and thing is not to eat or drink anything. Everyone should be covered with sackcloth and everyone should be in fervent prayer. The king proclaimed that everyone was to loose themselves from their evil ways and violence. He told the people to hope that God has compassion on them and that they will not perish. The word says that when God saw their action and how they turned from their evil ways , he relented and didn’t bring them the destruction that He threatened them with.

We serve a forgiving God, the Lord sent Jonah with a warning. Even though Jonah was disobedient he still ended up being reminded of the assignment over his life.

Because Jonah walked in his assignment people lived, lives were spared and sins were forgiven.

No matter ho you feel about a person or a people, your main concern should be what God has called you to do. What you have is set up to save someones life.

Listen! if you know that you have a purpose on your life, if you have a feeling like there is something is calling you, it’s time to get instruction from the creator . Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Believe in your heart and with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died for our sins and on the third day God raised him with POWER that you shall be saved.

Find you a bible based church, start building your relationship with God through a prayer life and get yourself around like-mind people and begin to walk by faith

Jonah Chapter 2

Blessings everyone!

I pray that you all are doing well today, did you enjoy chapter 1 today? We left off with Jonah in the belly of the fish. Have you thought about a time when you were forced to take the consequences, what did you do? Sometimes our backs can be pushed against the wall and all things, all fingers will point toward us. Can you say, hey it is me I am wrong! I’m realizing that Jonah did not deny or hide when it came time for his moment of truth. As a believer one thing that I have learned is God just wants us to admit our wrongs.

To the Followers thank you for your support and fellowship! If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog welcome! If you enjoyed the bible study don’t forget to follow so that you can get notification of new blogs. Let me introduce myself!

Let’s get in to the word!

This chapter shows us that even though Jonah was in the belly of the fish, he had to give God the Glory for his life.

Verse 1-5 Jonah says he cried out and God heard him from the belly of hell. he was cast into the deep sea, engulfed in currents, with seaweed wrapped around his head.

Imagine being in Jonah’s position. what could you do but pray. your in the belly of a fish, you know what got you there , you actually suggest to be thrown in the sea.

Sometimes we find ourselves in sitiuations where we walked right through the wrong door. some of us have found ourselves lacking in finances because of poor spending habits. some of us have found ourselves fired from our jobs because we didn’t get up and go to work. whatever it is the outcome is your big fish.

verse 6-10

Jonah speaks of when he lost hope when his soul fainted, when he couldn’t take anymore, when he was overwhelmed that’s when he remembered the Lord. Jonah remembered and proclaimed that he was the sacrifice to God and that his salvation is from the Lord,

We can find ourselves with 2 million things to do, it’s when we put God first and give ourselves to God we see and understand that it is God who is going to release us from that hold. WE CAN NOT RUN FROM GOD. WILL YOU BE THE SACRIFICE?

Amen

Listen if you are saying ” I want to sacrifice myself give my life to God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Say with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins and on the third day God raised him in Power than you shall be saved.

Take the time to build your relationship with God. find a bible based church, begin studying the word and get among some like minded people but most important start to build your prayer life, talk to the Lord tell Him all about it.

Jonah Chapter 1

Blessings everyone!

Yes it has been awhile since I sat down and wrote a blog. I missed it so much! I have been doing this blog for so long that it feels weird when I am not studying to write. When it was put in my spirit to write on Jonah I jumped to the task. The lessons learned from Jonah are powerful lessons when it comes to purpose and fear. one of the things that the Holy Spirit ministered to me was ” You can’t run from God.”

To those who Follow this blog thank you for your fellowship! If you are new to this blog, Welcome! If you enjoy the study please follow so that you can get notification of new posts. Let me introduce myself!

I serve as an intercessor and Prophetess of God, You can find me on Facebook for the Verse of the day and Periscope and YouTube for Journey in Praise Reflections. Alright lets get into the word!

The word says that Jonah was sent to go to Assyria and call the people to repent. The word says that Jonah ran and went to get on a boat. Jonah was not trying to be apart of dealings with the Assyrians he had no desire what so ever, he was willing to be disobedient for it.

He found a ship going to Tarsish and he paid to get on it. The word tells us that as Jonah was on the boat the Lord sent out a great wind, troubling the water. The water was so strong that the men on the boat was afraid the boat was going to break.

The word says that Jonah just went to the side of the ship and lay down and went to sleep. The ship master asked Jonah what’s your intentions , sleeper? Get up and call on your God.

The word says that they decided to cast lots to see whose fault it was that they were dealing with the danger and the lot pointed to Jonah 😯 They asked Jonah “Who are you?” Jonah responded; “I am a Hebrew ; and I fear the Lord the God of heaven which has made the sea and dry land”

The word goes on to say the men were exceedingly afraid. Jonah tells the men to cast him into the sea, he tells them that it was his fault that the sea was troubled. The men cried out to God ” we beg you Lord, we beg you let us not die because of this man.”

The word says the men threw Jonah into the sea and the water calmed. The chapter ends by telling us that God had a great fish prepared to swallow Jonah. Jonah was in the belly for three days and three nights.

Here it is, we serve the God, who is the creator of all things. In verse 9 Jonah says I am a Hebrew and I fear the Lord of Heaven which hath made the sea and dry land. It’s important to know who and whose we are. As the children of the creator of this Earth, if you don’t know who you are, you can easily fall for the tricks of the enemy and his schemes.

In verse 12 Jonah said to the men take me and through me into the sea, and the sea will calm for you. Jonah told the men he knew he was the reason the water raged. When you fear the Lord you don’t fear the what if’s, Jonah was welling to take what he had to take for his disobedience. He was willing to deal with what the Lord had for him.

Once the men decided that Jonah had to go and threw him off the boat the water calmed and Jonah sat in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights. Sometimes God will sit us down just so that we see what we need to see, just so that we can hear what we need to hear.

Amen

Listen! If you are running and desire to be in the presence of God turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Believe with heart and say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died for our sins and on the 3rd day God raised him from the dead and he got up in Power for our sins. You shall be saved.

Start studying the word of the Lord, find yourself a bible based church and begin fellowship with like minded people. but most important enjoy your Journey in Praise.
