Verse of the Day: In My Distress He Answered Me–Jonah 2:2-3
“Out of my distress I called to the Lord, and He answered me; From the womb of Sheol I cried for help, and You heard my voice” –Jonah 2:2-3.
In Jonah’s distress, being trapped in the belly of a large fish (can you imagine?), he knew of only one thing to do: Call out to the Lord! In so doing, God honored his faith and rescued him from his pit of despair. Do you feel caught in a situation today where there seems to be no way out? Use this challenging time to show God your faith. Don’t try to figure it all out in your own strength — use God’s strength! He is the one Who can break the stronghold, release you from all chains of inequity, and make the impossible possible. With God we can do all things (Phil. 4:13). So whatever it is you’re going through today, call out to the Lord in your distress – and trust Him for your deliverance.
