The Finger of God! (Jonah 1:4-5)

Rev Gareth JamesRev Gareth James, May 16, 2021
Part of the Jonah series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Jonah is on the run and no doubt feels he has succeeded in doing so. He takes it easy as the ship is on its way to Tarshish and he goes to bed and is sleeping soundly. Yet God has His finger on him and Jonah cannot outrun God and His plans. God’s finger is on Jonah in the storm that He hurls at the ship and also in the fear the pagan sailors experience – that drives them to pray to their gods, even if the prophet of the Lord is sleeping soundly. Jonah would be rudely woken up and challenged as to why he is not praying…
