Thursday, 14th March 2024: God will create an environment that will help you respond to your life’s purpose!

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

Reflections: Jonah was thrown into the sea with slim chances of survival. He was at risk of losing his life in several ways, including drowning, being preyed upon, or crashing onto rocks. However, God intervened and sent a large fish to swallow him. The fish was like a submarine, providing an environment that supported human life within its belly. Thus, even though a potentially deadly sea surrounded Jonah, he was kept alive and safe within the fish’s belly. On the third day, based on instructions from God, the fish vomited him ashore, and Jonah took up his life’s assignment of preaching the message of repentance to the people of Nineveh. The preservation of Jonah’s life was therefore to allow him to fulfil his destiny. God will create an environment that enables you to survive calamities and respond to your life’s purpose.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for being my ever-present help in times of trouble.
Confession: God is my ever-present help in times of trouble.
