Today's Verse : Jonah 2:1-2


February 2, 2012

From inside the fish Jonah prayed ... "In my distress I called
to the LORD, and he answered me. From the depths of the grave I
called for help, and you listened to my cry."
-- Jonah 2:1-2
Jonah was disobedient, rebellious, and selfish. He had run from
the Lord. He had shunned the Lord's command. He had endangered the
lives of those on the ship where he had tried to hide. Yet even in
the middle of his rebellion, God heard his cry and delivered him.
If you are in rebellion, if you are seeking to hide some secret and
all-consuming sin, please know the Lord wants to ransom and redeem
you! Things won't be easy, but coming back to the Lord means
ultimate redemption and deliverance.
Holy and righteous Father, please forgive me for the times that
I am in rebellion to your will. Help me to recognize those times
and give me the strength to avoid those temptations. In your grace,
dear Father, please not only help me to live as you want me to live
but also lead me to someone else who needs to know of your grace
and redemption. Please use me to help them escape from their
bondage to sin and shame. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
