Who is in Your Boat?-2

Jonah 1: 4 “But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken”
Jonah 1: 5 “Then the mariners were afraid and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay and was fast asleep”
…From yesterday…
Personally, I felt peace within and made to continue reading when I heard this dangerous and terrible complaint or should I say prayer from the other co passenger. He said:
“They warned me not to fly this plane, I didn’t listen. But they cannot get me. I am prepared for you. This plane will not go down. I must arrive Lagos in Jesus name. You said you’ll wait for me, but you will fail. Your plans won’t work, you enemies of progress. I know you all! Then he began to mention some names…”
Friend, at that point I became very jittery. I must confess my faith shook as badly as the turbulence shook the aircraft! Sweat broke out on my face. Surely what we hear controls our heart.
After hearing this man’s complaint/prayer, which I couldn’t really classify, the first thought that came to my mind was the story of Jonah from where we took our focal scripture. I felt what those guys travelling with Jonah felt. Hear this:
Jonah 1:8 “Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil [is] upon us; What [is] thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what [is] thy country? and of what people [art] thou?”
Jonah 1:9 “And he said unto them, I [am] an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry [land].”
Jonah 1:10 “Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.”
To be continued…
