The Sign of Jonah

March 29 | Matthew 12:40

“For just as Jonah was in the belly of the big fish for three days and three nights, likewise will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.” (Matthew 12:40)

Many people have no idea how much prophecy surrounded the biggest event in history, the death and resurrection of Jesus. Some people believe prophecy is just superstition. There are clear places in Scripture were prophecy is extremely accurate.

Jesus prophesied about his own death and resurrection when he talked about the sign of Jonah with the Pharisees. They wanted a sign from him, a miracle, a healing, or something else to prove his divinity.

But Jesus told them a sign about his death and resurrection. He said as Jonah was in the belly of the big fish for three days, so he would rise again on the third day. You are on the winning team. Jesus has conquered death and he will conquer evil in the end.

Whatever you are facing today, Jesus has already seen it coming. He knows everything you deal with, everything that comes against you. Stand firm on the Rock of your salvation today. Jesus never lost a battle.

Action Step: Be calm in the presence of the Lord. Place all of your worries and cares at his feet. He will guide you through this day, give you the strength and peace to deal with every issue.

Jesus, I come to you today. I bring all of my baggage, every burden weighing me down. Keep my focus on you and your kingdom. Place people in my life I can influence for you. Keep me in your vibrant presence.
