A study in separation - Jonah,

But the LORD sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be broken up. Jonah 1:4 (NKJV)

Jonah did his best to escape God’s presence and His will for his life. He expended his energies and resources to drown out the voice calling him to Nineveh, and the Lord actually allowed him to run for a time. But then, just as Jonah started to relax and feel secure in his disobedience, God sent a storm.

We know what happens next. Jonah makes the connection between his disobedience and the peril he’s put himself and his shipmates in. He tells them to throw him overboard, which they reluctantly do. And then the character that makes this such a unique and memorable story swims onto the scene:

Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (Jonah 1:17 NKJV)

Jonah was finally alone. In fact, it’s hard for us to fully fathom how alone Jonah was at this point. How can you get more alone than this? He was absolutely and utterly removed from all that was familiar and friendly. No people to talk to, no freedom to move about, no activities or responsibilities to distract him, no sights or sounds to occupy him, not even sunlight can find him here inside his host!

He was as alone as a human being can get. And it’s here, in this utter aloneness, that Jonah finally turns to the only thing that is with him—the presence of the Lord:

Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the fish’s belly. (Jonah 2:1 NKJV)

God wanted this. He wanted Jonah to go from being someone who had turned from Him and His will to being turned towards Him and His will. And in His infinite wisdom, He knew what it would take to produce this change in Jonah’s heart…it took being completely alone.

Think About It…

What does this passage reveal to me about God?

What does this passage reveal to me about myself?

Based on this, what changes do I need to make?

What is my prayer for today?

Lord it is your will that will bring us peace, Make me an instrument of your Love that my life and light may be the brighten the path of others in Your Precious name……

You might think it silly now, but way back when, Nicholas Jonas was just twelve I was begging Christian stations to play his music, I said this kid is going to be Big, He is going places, hehe Wow was that an understatement. I wrote them (The Jonas's) and told them I would remove the photo / link if they wanted The Two Great Cd's at the time was and still is "Dear God" and "Joy to the world a Christmas Prayer" boy these are still timeless gifts hope you get one  Oh the next year his Cd's took off and they were playing those Cd's all the time in the interim I put the Cd hook-ups on the Christian sites.   God Bless

You can order by Clicking the CD Nicholas Jonas

I have always valued the impute from readers, especially men and woman in recovery, Why.?. Because I feel as if we have come so far already, I mean, temptation on either side of us. Sometimes right in our families, some that may find joy in our falling. Regardless the struggle I believe God has given me the gift to empower His papers to make lives step into the Full Armor of God Daily, We have to deal with what is in the day right now! Because we cannot change ten minutes ago, we can't change a year ago, but we can know in the day we will strive to make our lives a beacon to those suffering and granted there are many. I would rather bring one man to the cross then anything else in this journey. We have the power to help those, right around us, make it happen today, you can do this!
