[The Glory Unveiled]
1 But the LORD provided a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish three days and three nights.2 From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God. ( Jonah 2:1-2 )
Like Jonah, there are times God insulates us from the world and separates us unto Himself. God does this to catch our full attention in order to communicate a specific purpose to us. For instance, Moses’ burning bush experience was intended to catch his attention just as apostle Paul’s Damascus encounter gave God a firm grip on him. When Jonah was instructed to carry out an assignment, he thought he could choose to do whatever he wanted. There are times God gives us some free rides but unfortunately Jonah didn’t have any in that moment because all humans are actually like clay in the hands of the Potter (God) and He does with us what He please. Three days of staying in the belly of the great fish, Jonah was rewired in his understanding; Moses became a deliverer and a judge right on the mountain where he encountered God. Whenever men leave the presence of God if they were truly in the presence of God, they became susceptible to the call of God because the will and purpose of God is always clear in the presence of God. Let us walk yieldingly in the call of God for our lives.
