TOPIC: Lessons From The Life Of Jonah (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 2 October 2022)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 4:10-31, Jeremiah 5, Philippians 3, Philippians 4:1, Psalm 116:1-11


1 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,

2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.

3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

4 But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.

5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.

MEMORY VERSE: “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” – Ecclesiastes 12:13

There are no detours around God’s will, and anything short of total obedience to God is disobedience.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:

The life of Jonah shows that anyone who pitches himself or herself against God cannot succeed in life. It also proves that failure to carry out God’s instructions, however contradictory to reason they may appear to be, always results in great spiritual loss.

Jonah was disobedient to God’s instruction. As a result, God became angry with him and troubled him Though God had sent him to Nineveh, Jonah boarded the ship going to Tarshish. He decided to travel in the ship of disobedience. God’s anger was kindled against him. Hence, God sent a storm or terrible wind to trouble the ship. The captain and other passengers cast lot and found out that the problem was caused by Jonah. Therefore, they threw him into the sea. After that, the storm became still.

Jonah was swallowed by a whale and remained in its belly for three days and three nights. It was when he repented that God commanded the whale to vomit him. Beloved, what happened to Jonah is the fate that will befall anyone living in disobedience to God’s word or command: God’s anger, judgement and punishment.

Jonah rejected the will of God and chose to be self-willed and rebellious. God told him to go to Nineveh and preach repentance to a whole nation. Though the sins of Nineveh were great and grievous, God decided to show them mercy and give them a long rope by sending Jonah to deliver His message to them and get them to change from their evil ways rather than being swift in judging and destroying them. Jonah felt that God ought to destroy them and not give them any opportunity to repent. So, he went to Joppa instead of Nineveh.

Also, Jonah concluded within himself that the people of Nineveh had gone so corrupt and sinful that they were not likely to forsake their evil ways. So he felt that there was no point in going to deliver God’s message of repentance to them. In each instance, Jonah did not show complete trust in the sovereignty and omniscience of God. He did not submit himself to the supremacy of divine counsel. Could he have known better than God to determine who deserves His mercy and love and who does not?

You must avoid the mistakes of Jonah. Your obedience to His counsel and command must be unquestioning, prompt and complete. Running your life, ministry and any other affair contrary to divine direction will attract trouble and pain to you. It is a terrible thing to fall into the hand of the living God!



  1. Father, help me to always do divine bidding and Your word, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I will not face the wrath of God, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I receive the grace to always trust God sovereignty and omniscience, in the name of Jesus.


  1. Father, give me the grace to love as You love, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O God, arise and increase my passion for souls, in the name of Jesus.
  3. l overcome the spirit of self-will and rebellion, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Father, help me to be unquestioningly, promptly and completely obedient to you, in the name of Jesus.
