Lessons From The Fish

Lessons From The Fish…

Jonah was the prophet who went against God’s will. He ran away, went on a ship, and was thrown overboard. In the original Hebrew, it says, “The Lord ordained a great fish.” This wasn’t just your average fish.

This was seminary material. The fish had never been to Bible college. Nevertheless, it was ordained. Having an ordained shark is a good thing – when a shark ministers, you listen! God has ordained sharks, not just in Jonah’s life, but in yours, too.

There are many sharks in your life-problems that look like they’re going to swallow you up. Yet the shark was ordained. It swallowed Jonah, but it was used to bring him back to God’s will. The shark was ordained to minister to Jonah.

So in your life problems are really ordained fish. God promises that He will work all things for good, so what looks like a problem is ordained to minister to you and bring strength, faith, patience, growth and new beginnings.

Don’t fear the problem. It’s an ordained shark fresh from seminary sent with a mission to be your minister.

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5

Face up to that problem or that fear you’ve been running from. Look at it in a new way – it’s not against you – but in God, it’s an ordained fish – to be used for your blessing!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
