The Sign Of Jonah
The Sign Of Jon­ah

Have you ever read about Jon­ah and fish? Can you recall the sto­ry of how Jon­ah found him­self in the bel­ly of a whale when he had in mind of run­ning away from deliv­er­ing the mes­sage? God want­ed him to deliv­er the mes­sage to the peo­ple of Nin­eveh. Jon­ah did some­thing tremen­dous, he prayed to God from the bel­ly of the fish and God deliv­ered him. He tabled his prayer and sup­pli­ca­tion to God with thanks­giv­ing. He no longer observed the lying van­i­ties. There­fore the mer­cy of God came to his res­cue. In the voice of thanks­giv­ing he paid his vowed. God deliv­ered him by speak­ing his word to the fish, which then vom­it­ed Jon­ah.

Matthew 12:39, Jesus answered the scribes and Phar­isees say­ing, “an evil and adul­ter­ous gen­er­a­tion seeketh after signs, and there shall no sign be giv­en to it, but the sign of the prophet Jon­ah.

Now many a times after God has called us to a cer­tain pur­pose, we tend to look at the lying van­i­ties. (The cares of life) look­ing to these, we can­not ful­fill our pur­pose or des­tiny in life. While look­ing to the lying van­i­ties, we end up in the bel­ly of the fish. We get swal­lowed up by these sit­u­a­tions which drags and keeps us down. Our deliv­er­ance comes when in the mist of those dif­fi­cul­ties we decide to make a turn­around to answer God’s pur­pose con­cern­ing our life as pleas­es God, choos­ing to do his will in the mist of the chal­lenges. Then thank­ing him as though we are already accom­plished His will. When we pray accord­ing to God’s will, God answers speed­i­ly. His mer­cy and favour and grace oper­ate in us and the envi­ron­ment we are.

 Many observe lying van­i­ties there­fore they for­sake the mer­cy of God, no one can observe lying van­i­ties and serve God at the same time. When we focus on God, when we seek His king­dom and right­eous­ness every oth­er thing is added unto us. For­sake the lying van­i­ties and focus on God’s pur­pose for your life

Expe­ri­ence Life Abun­dance In Christ.
