And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land (Jonah 2:10).
Lovely image, don’t you think?
I wonder why we don’t hear more worship songs built around this verse.
It isn’t always pretty, the way God works. It isn’t always glamorous. Sometimes it will leave you humbled, disheveled, and smelling of fish innards.
And yet…he’s still working.
May I make a suggestion, Beloved? As you embark on your Thursday, be on the lookout for the ways in which God is providing for you and protecting you. It may not be apparent at first glance. That minor illness may be God’s way of allowing you to rest. That undesired overtime may be his way of paying the rent. Be assured of this: if you’re his, then he’s working in, through, and for you.
No matter what it looks like.
Wipe the fish goo out of your eyes and look around. He’s doing amazing things.
Because you are his Beloved.
