Are you convinced of God’s limitless power?
If a whale swallowed you up when you were drowning in a storm, would you be convinced?
As a result, he decided he would obey God and warn Nineveh of impending doom if they did not repent and turn to God.
In Jonah’s prayer, he says he was swirling down to the very heart of the sea with waves sweeping over him, down to the realm of the dead. He called for help and the Lord brought him up from the pit.
Do we ever feel like we are falling deep into the depths with problems and issues piling on top of us, pressing us down?
Are we engulfed by the cares of this world, sinking down into the darkness?
God tells us to turn away from the worries and fears that distract us and call on him. Repent and obey.
And he will bring our lives up from the pit. Just like he did for Jonah.
We believe in your power and in your faithfulness, dear Father.
