Jonah 1:15 “So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.”

Jonah 1:16 “Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.”

Jonah 1:17 “Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.”

Oh, how I love the LORD! He is too smart, caring and compassionate. Nothing takes him by surprise, He is Lord of all. No man can stop his plan and purpose. He is just God!

I was so excited when I read the seventeenth verse of the Book of Jonah chapter one, as seen above. It says, “Now the LORD had prepared a great fish…” That verse didn’t say, “The Lord will prepare a fish”, it spoke in past tense, “He had prepared”.

Hear me, before they threw Jonah into the sea, the fish was waiting with mouth ajar or wide opened. God knew they will throw Jonah into the sea, He also knew the exact longitude and latitude where he will land in water, so He instructed the fish and sent it to that exact spot, what a God!

If that fish was not waiting, Jonah would definitely have drowned because they threw him into the sea not a small pond. The fish was not disobedient like Jonah, it obeyed God’s command and waited patiently for the “arrival” of Jonah.

Friend, while your enemies were busy scheming and planning, God was watching and hatching his own superior plans too. Before the devil moves, God always move! No man can be smarter than the Ancient of days, the Everlasting Father, the King of kings, Lord of Lord, Alpha and Omega.

While they were planning, God already knew how it will end. Let them continue planning against you, it will come to nothing because there is a “prepared fish”! Hear this:

Isaiah 8:10 “Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.”

Their thought is to drown you, but they will always come late. God is with us, no negativity against us shall stand!

To be continued…

Love you BiG
