Day 1: Read Jonah 1:17-2:3. Why do you think we sometimes have to sink so low before we remember God?

Day 2: Read Jonah 2:4-7. When have you felt like you were in a deep, dark pit, either physically, emotionally or spiritually? What did you do? What did God do? How does that still influence your life today?

Day 3: Read Jonah 2:8. Why do you think Jonah does not confess his sin, but the sins of others? When are you tempted to be more focused on others’ sins and not your own?

Day 4: Read 1 John 1:8-9. God is faithful and just. Take time to come clean with your sin before Him, and ask forgiveness.

Day 5: Read Jonah 2:9. Where is God moving you to give thanks today? 

Day 6: Read Jonah 2:10. Jonah doesn’t know when living in the belly of a great fish is going to end, yet He trusts in God to act in God’s time. Where do you need to trust God today to act in His time in your life? Like Jonah, take time in prayer to lay out your heart to God in prayer.

You can GO DEEPER this week by reading the book The Prodigal Prophet: The Mystery of Jonah and God’s Mercy by Tim Keller.
