Throwing Jonah

4 Jan

Throwing Jonah..

We read about Jonah through Jonah’s perspective. But we can learn something more through another’s perspective – the crew. The crew had problems–the boat, the wind, the storm. But their real problem was Jonah.

Once they realized that, they threw him overboard; no more problems, just smooth sailing, nice and quiet. But for Jonah, he was swallowed by the fish. For them, their problem was over; they threw it overboard.

Similarly, you might be dealing with continual problems in your life. The real problem may not always be the problems that are in front of you, but something deeper. Perhaps not everything in your life is going wrong, but there is something in your life that is not in the Lord’s will…not God’s best.

Until you deal with that thing, and throw it overboard, you are not going to solve the other problems. You may already have a notion concerning what it is or you might have to seek for it. But if there IS something, that something is your Jonah. Deal with it, throw it overboard once and for all, and the storm will cease. You will have smooth sailing.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Find a quiet place to pray and seek God’s will for your life! Take steps to rid your mind and life of anything that’s against His will! Throw it overboard!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
