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.

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.
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?
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.
