Devotional For May 25, 2024

So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
‭‭Jonah‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬

The story of Jonah is one of rebellion, repentance, and redemption—a story that resonates with us on many levels. Like Jonah, we often find ourselves running from God’s call, seeking to escape His presence and evade His will for our lives. Yet, no matter how far we may stray, God’s pursuit of us never wavers.

In Jonah’s moment of desperation, trapped within the belly of the great fish, he cries out to God for mercy. His prayer, recorded in Jonah 2, is an expression of repentance and surrender—a turning point in his journey back to God. And in response to Jonah’s cry, God intervenes miraculously, commanding the fish to vomit Jonah onto dry land.

God’s deliverance of Jonah serves as a powerful reminder of His unfailing love and faithfulness towards His children. Even in our moments of disobedience and rebellion, God is always ready to extend His hand of mercy and rescue us from the depths of despair. His grace knows no bounds, and His desire is for all to come to repentance and experience His salvation.

Today, let us reflect on God’s deliverance of Jonah and the lessons it holds for us. May we recognize our own need for repentance and surrender, acknowledging our dependence on God’s mercy and grace. And may we respond with obedience and faithfulness, trusting in God’s faithfulness to lead us on the path of righteousness and fulfill His purposes in and through us.


Lord, thank You for Your mercy and grace that reaches down to rescue me from the depths of despair. Help me to recognize the need for repentance and surrender, and to trust in Your unfailing love. May I respond with obedience and faithfulness to Your call. In Jesus’ name, amen.
