Today’s Reading:

Jonah 2:1 - 10

In the above scripture, we read the account of Jonah's prayer of Confession in the belly of the fish. The previous chapter gives an account of how Jonah tried to evade his divine assignment by going to Tarshish. God told him to go to Nineveh and preach to the inhabitants. He refused and decided to dodge. The result is that he found himself in the belly of a fish. It was at that point he prayed the prayer of confession in chapter 2. If God has decided to use you for His kingdom work, you better obey, otherwise you will get the Jonah treatment.

There are a lot of Christians today who are passing through all kinds of difficulties, and they think it is the evil powers of their father's house or some other negative forces. All God is expecting them to do is obey. In many cases they are aware of the call of God upon their lives but have one excuse or the other for not heeding to the call. Some of the reasons given for refusing God's call could be as follows:

  1. Laziness

  2. Cares of this life and public opinion. They are concerned about what people would say.

  3. Prejudice - it could be ethnic, especially if the person is being sent to a different ethnic group. This was the problem Jonah had. He was biased against the people of Nineveh, knowing that God forgives whoever repents no matter where the person comes from.

  4. Fear of loss of material comfort.

Whatever may be your reason, don't wait until you find yourself in the belly of your own fish before you obey. I can tell you from personal experience that there is great benefit in serving God. The benefits are generational. Therefore, heed the call today. The harvest is ripe, but the labourers are few.




  1. The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof; the world and all that dwells therein.

  2. Father Lord, I ask for forgiveness for my disobedience, in Jesus name.

  3. Every conspiracy against my divine assignment, scatter, in the name of Jesus

  4. My ministry will not end on the lap of Delilah, in the name of Jesus

  5. O Lord grant our children, teenagers, youths and young adults, the wisdom, knowledge of things of You, love of You and Your word, in Jesus name.

  6. O Lord teach our children, teenagers, youths and young adults Your righteous path, in Jesus name.

  7. O God send your fire of revival into the church in the name of Jesus

  8. Revival fire of God overshadow this nation in the name of Jesus.
