Jonah

The Fiery Furnace

This account recorded during their captivity would serve as a reminder to Gods people, down through the centuries, that  God requires obedience to Him whatever the consequences while at the same time affirming God’s sovereignty over creation and presence among his people. God can be trusted no matter the situation. Rest in him with full obedience. When in exile. When facing a fiery furnace. God expects our obedience regardless of the circumstances.
