Salvation Comes From The Lord

Do you ever relate to Jonah?

I most certainly can.

He was instructed by the Lord and quickly dismissed him. However, it didn’t take long for Jonah to realize where he had made a mistake.

He corrected his error, fulfilling the plan God had created for him. Then Jonah went on to praise God because he knew that our salvation comes from the Lord.

It is never too late to turn back to God, nor is it too late to begin a journey with him. No matter what we may be experiencing, we are never alone. The Lord hears our cries, and he answers us.

Jonah 2:2-9

“In my distress I called to the Lord,

and he answered me.

From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help,

and you listened to my cry.

You hurled me into the depths,

into the very heart of the seas,

and the currents swirled about me;

all your waves and breakers

swept over me.

I said, ‘I have been banished

from your sight;

yet I will look again

toward your holy temple.’

The engulfing waters threatened me,

the deep surrounded me;

seaweed was wrapped around my head.

To the roots of the mountains I sank down;

the earth beneath barred me in forever.

But you, Lord my God,

brought my life up from the pit.

“When my life was ebbing away,

I remembered you, Lord,

and my prayer rose to you,

to your holy temple.

“Those who cling to worthless idols

turn away from God’s love for them.

But I, with shouts of grateful praise,

will sacrifice to you.

What I have vowed I will make good.

I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”

Baring His Beauty,
