Jonah 1:9–17

The storms of life shock us, get our attention, teach us who’s in charge, and often lead us to our knees before the throne of God. For Jonah, it was an actual storm. God created a violent wind on the waters to get Jonah hurled out of the ship and into the sea. Good thing for Jonah, God appointed a fish to swallow him as a divine rescue.

Chuck Swindoll teaches us how to walk through the storms of life. While God likely won’t offer you relief in the belly of a fish, it’s still wise to be ready for a divine surprise.
