Ask God for help
Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish...
- Jonah 2:1
I called to the Lord in my distress, and he answered me. I cried out for help from deep inside Sheol; you heard my voice.
- Jonah 2:2
Take Responsibility
Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a person sows he will also reap, 8 because the one who sows to his flesh will reap destruction from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit.
- Galatians 6:7-8
When you threw me into the depths, into the heart of the seas, the current overcame me. All your breakers and your billows swept over me.
- Jonah 2:3
And I said, “I have been banished from your sight, yet I will look once more toward your holy temple.” 5 The water engulfed me up to the neck; the watery depths overcame me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. 6 I sank to the foundations of the mountains, the earth’s gates shut behind me forever! Then you raised my life from the Pit, LORD my God! 7 As my life was fading away, I remembered the LORD, and my prayer came to you, to your holy temple.
- Jonah 2:4-7
Remember Gods promises
...every prayer or petition that any person or that all your people Israel may have— they each know their own affliction—as they spread out their hands toward this temple, 39 may you hear in heaven, your dwelling place, and may you forgive, act, and give to everyone according to all their ways, since you know each heart, for you alone know every human heart, 40 so that they may fear you all the days they live on the land you gave our ancestors.
- 1 Kings 8:38-40
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness...
- 1 John 1:9
Find joy in your journey
Those who cherish worthless idols abandon their faithful love, 9 but as for me, I will sacrifice to you with a voice of thanksgiving. I will fulfill what I have vowed. Salvation belongs to the LORD.
- Jonah 2:8-9
Then the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
- Jonah 2:8-9
