A Fish Named “Grace” [Jonah 2] – No amount of rebellion is greater than God’s love. His relentless pursuit of us often finds us in the lowest possible places.
- We are all sinners – we all rebel in our quest for independence.
- The fish was evidence of God’s grace – not his anger.
- God gives wrath to his enemies and discipline to his children.
- God appointed a fish to be at the right place at the right time to digest a reluctant prophet in just the right way.
- God’s discipline does not indicate a lack of care but reveals a proof of love.
- Before you can preach a message to another, you have to receive it yourself.
- God can always hear even the faintest cries of desperation. (cf. Ex. 2:25)
- God’s deliverance is often progressive because his discipline is part of the process.
- We don’t make promises to obtain deliverance, we make promises because we have received deliverance.
- Sometimes the lowest moments and the greatest moments of our lives are one in the same.
