Second Chance – Jonah 2:10-3:2
Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.
And YHWH commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land. Then the word of YHWH came to Jonah a second time: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.”
I remember many of the Sunday School classes as a child on this story. Seeing all the pictures of Jonah in the belly of a huge whale. They made the belly look so big that Jonah could walk around.
And then we hear the debates if it was whale or was it in fact a big fish that swallowed him. I don’t know, call me simple but, does it really matter. YHWH provided some kind of sea creature to keep Jonah from drowning. The whole point was that YHWH provided Jonah a second chance.
Granted, it was a dark and lonely three days in that belly. And I’m sure there was little to no wiggle room. The perfect situation to humble anyone back to seeing their need for YHWH. I pray none of us have to go through that kind of lesson. However, if we do, let’s make sure it’s a lesson that doesn’t need to be repeated.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
