Days (2)

Our Bible Reading today is about Jonah. God told Jonah to go to the city of Ninevah and tell the people to stop sinning. But Jonah was scared. So he ran away. Later, ?the Lord chose a very big fish to go and swallow Jonah. Jonah was in the fish?s stomach for three days and three nights? (verse 17b).
I do not think that three days is a long time. But probably Jonah thought three days inside a fish was a very long time! What did Jonah do for three days? Jonah 2:1 says, ?While Jonah was in the fish?s stomach, he prayed to the Lord his God.? Jonah prayed and asked God to help him. Jonah also told God he would obey Him. God paid attention to Jonah?s prayer.
Sometimes we are like Jonah. We disobey God, and then we face problems. When that happens, we should ask God to forgive us and help us. God will pay attention to our prayers and help us to obey Him.
Take time to talk to God today. Ask Him to help you obey Him every day.
