May the Lord Use Our Sinking Ships

Sometimes the consequences of our sin hurl a storm into other’s lives. Yet…even in our failures…God can redeem!

As a result of Jonah’s sin, a great tempest had a ripple effect into those around him on the ship. Yet…it caused them to seek out Jonah and his God!

Why  not allow the Lord Jesus to use your disappointments, wanderings and “sinking ships” to point people to the God who has saved you from all sin. Look up for your redemption draws near.

Jonah 1:1–6

1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying,

2 “Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.”

3 But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

4 The Lord hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up.

5 Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to his god, and they threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep.

6 So the captain approached him and said, “How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, call on your god. Perhaps your god will be concerned about us so that we will not perish.”
