What to do When in Distress--Outline only
Jonah: An Inescapable Mission
What to do When in Distress?
Memory Verse: Psalm 120:1 (NKJV) In my distress I cried to the Lord, And He heard me.
Text: Jonah 1:17-2:10
Jonah 1:17 (NKJV) 17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
“A believer cannot come to a place so abnormal that he cannot not pray to God there. The belly of the sea monster became Jonah’s prayer closet.”James E. Smith
First, we should Pray to God. Jonah 2:1-7
Jonah 2:1 (NKJV) Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly.
Cf. Lamentations 3:55–56; Psalm 120:1
Second, we should Praise God. Jonah 2:8-9
Psalm 31:6 I have hated those who regard useless idols; But I trust in the Lord.

Third, we should realize that our Deliverance will be propelled by God. Jonah 2:10
Jonah 2:10 (NKJV) 10 So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
Are you in bondage today?
Are you in distress?
Turn to God.
