Jonah 1:17 Now the Lord had prepared and appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.[AMP]
It would seem that God was teaching Jonah a harsh lesson in this instance, but the Grace of God was on full display! Remember its God unmerited favor, Grace! God commissioned us from the garden to carry out the purpose of His kingdom. We have struggled since the garden to find our purpose. In your walk with God you have experienced the blasts of society that have minimized your importance! Adam was created to facilitate Gods will in the earth realm. He was given wisdom and authority to do so with divine success.
Jonah’s three day commune with God in the belly of the fish facilitated his realization with seaweed wrapped around his head that doing the will of the Father was greater than his judgmental view of a city. It has been God who brought us through the chaos of life. When we felt overwhelmed and it seemed like seaweed wrapped around our heads it has been God’s Grace that facilitated our deliverance!
2 Corinthians 4:7 However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.[AMP]
We are created in the image of God! He has not changed his design from the first man Adam. Great men of God where are you? Do not hide from you destiny in God! Step up and walk in dominion as you have been designed to do!
