Daily Manna April 17 2019  Topic: YOUR “BELLY OF THE FISH SEASON!

Daily Manna April 17 2019


BASIC SCRIPTURES: JONAH 1:17; Psalm 88:1-18

From today’s first scripture, there are times when God will allow a painful situation or a painful circumstance to “swallow us up.” I call this season in our spiritual growth as: “IN THE BELLY OF THE FISH.” it is a season when you can’t move to the left or to right. It is a season when all you can do is to sit like Jonah sat in the belly of that divine fish so that God can have our undivided attention and speak to us.

God put Jonah in the belly of the fish because He needed to rearrange his life’s assignment and speak to his heart. It was a season where Jonah was “all alone” -no friends to call, no relatives to ask questions, no colleagues to drop by, no food to eat, and no interruptions! He had plenty of time to sit, think, meditate and pray! Sounds familiar? At least for me, YES! When David passed through his “BELLY OF THE FISH” experience, see what he said: “Thou has put away mine acquaintance far from me… I am shut up and I cannot come forth” (Psalms 88:8).

Wow! Vs. 6 had said: “Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.” That’s a typical, “IN THE BELLY OF THE FISH” experience! The LORD is using today’s devotional to ask you to look up to Him if you are passing through a difficult phase of your life right now! Every trial is allowed for a reason and for a season! James Allen browsed on this thus:  “No situation can be difficult of itself: It is the lack of insight into the intricacies and the want of wisdom in dealing with It,  which gives rise to the difficulty transcended.”  

The intricacies (mysteries) of any allowed difficulty in your life is plain to God. If you wait on Him in your “FISH BELLY” experience, your life will become a City of Achievement on the top of a hill along the popular STORY to GLORY avenue! Hold on to your God!
