Have you ever been in the belly of the fish?

In Hebrews 4:16, the writer of the letter says: “we draw near to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” If you go to the one who seats on the throne of grace, what else can you find if not grace and mercy.

jonahWe are reminded of this in another way, when reading Jonah 2, where you find this verse that we’ve read so many times, but maybe it never had it’s full effect on our heart. The verse goes like this (Jonah 2:1) – “Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish.”

It automatically brings to mind this question: What was the strangest, most difficult circumstance where you prayed? Why is the place or the circumstance in which we pray important or helpful? Because of what Jonah says later. But let https://www.cialissansordonnancefr24.com/generique-cialis/ me ask you this, first:

What was the most difficult place in your life, where you had to kneel before the throne of grace? Our “times of need” (Hebrews 4:16) are our “belly of the fish” (Jonah 2:1).

So why is the place important? If you read chapter 2 in Jonah you will understand how important the belly of the fish was for him. It helped him understand and recognize, through prayer, God’s sovereign power. Jonah says this in his prayer:

Jonah 2:3 – “YOU cast me into the deep

Jonah 2:6 – “YOU brought up my life from the pit

Jonah and all of us, sometimes, need the “belly of the fish“/ the “times of need” in order that we:

  1. acknowledge that God is in control, that he is SOVEREIGN
  2. that He alone is our saviour
  3. that everything works for the good of those who love Him and are called for His purpose
  4. that we need to kneel before the throne of grace for grace
  5. that He will save us for a purpose

Rejoice in the Lord always!
