Our focus is not to figure out who or what we can throw overboard... we are going to look at Jonah and what he did when they threw him overboard!
Jonah 2: 1 From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God.
Jonah - The fish was his salvation. The Fish was the grace of God! The Fish was provided by the Lord...it was not punishment!
WE CAN GET A BAD ATTITUDE WHEN THINGS DON’T GO OUR WAY, but God may be using them to develop us! How many know we are all a work in progress and we all need development!
Jonah prays in the belly of the fish!
When you are in a place where you can’t do anything When you are in a place where you can’t fix it
When you are in a place where you feel confined and restricted... PRAY!
What Did Jonah do...Jonah Prayed and God answered!
1. Pray with PASSION!
2. Pray with Purpose!
3. Take the position of Praise!
