God’s Question

“Then the Lord said, “Is it right for you to be angry?” ”  Jonah 4:4

I love that God just asked Jonah a question. He had been through quite a lot by this point.

Thank You, Lord, for Your care and patience with me as I try to process what You are doing.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Is it right
for you to be angry?
God’s question
humbles me.

Please keep me broken
lowly and serving
praying for Your
relenting mercy.

God bless you and give you understanding today!

So The People Believed

“And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk.  Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.”  Jonah 3:4 NKJV

“So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them.”  Jonah 3:5 NKJV

When Jonah finally preached, the reaction and results were both quick and positive.

Thank You, Father, for making a way for us to do what You ask us to.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The enemy sends lies
and discouragement
tells me I’ll fail
that it’s too hard

but my Jesus says
“Listen to Me now,
I’ll take you through this
just obey and walk on.”

God bless you as you obey Him today!

Praying From the Fish’s Belly

“Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly.”  Jonah 2:1

“And he said:
I cried out to the Lord  because of my affliction
And He answered me.
Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And you heard my voice.”  Jonah 2:2

Though in a fish’s belly, Jonah recognized he’d been saved.

Thank You, God, for hearing my voice and saving me out of the belly of Sheol.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Even if I’m downcast
and afflicted
with waves and billows
rolling over me

let me remember how great
is my Salvation
how You swallowed up sin
at Calvary.

God bless you as you cry out to Him today!

An Everywhere God

“But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.”  Jonah 1:3 NKJV

Jonah found out he couldn’t really flee God’s presence.

Thank You, God, for being everywhere . . .even the places where I go to hide.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

How could You ask
me to do this?
With my track record
I’d best just hide.

It’s true
I could find
someone better
but then how could I
change you, inside?

God bless you and all the places He finds you today!
