Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 25 March 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: The Tragedy Of The Jonah Association

TOPIC: The Tragedy Of The Jonah Association (Seeds Of Destiny 25 March 2024)

SCRIPTURE: 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. Jonah 1:5.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is not only enough not to be a “Jonah;” it is dangerous to hang around a “Jonah” because you may suffer losses with him.

Seeds Of Destiny For Today 2024 MESSAGE:

The Bible reveals that when God sent Jonah to Nineveh, Jonah decided to go to Tarshish, and he almost lost his life. Everything in the ship was lost. God sent him to Nineveh, but he decided to go to Joppa, found a ship going to Tarshish, and paid the fare.

Beloved, it is important to know that whenever you go where God is not sending you, you pay for it. When you take a journey of life and destiny that God has not sent you, you pay for it.

Even those on the same ship with Jonah lost their properties because Jonah was with them. Because Jonah was inside the ship, they had to empty the ship, by throwing everything overboard, and casting them into the water.

You see, it is not enough not to be a “Jonah”; it is dangerous to hang around a “Jonah” because you may suffer losses with him. Were it not for God, Jonah would have perished in the sea.

They threw Jonah out into the sea, but God in His mercy prepared a fish that swallowed him up. Jonah became a victim when he decided to go in the direction that God did not send him. But he became a champion when he arrived at the place of his assignment. From the King of Nineveh to the animals in the land, everyone heeded the message of Jonah.

Beloved, this shows that you can only be tolerated when you are out of purpose. And you are celebrated when you are in the midst of purpose.

REMEMBER THIS: It is not enough not to be a “Jonah;” it is dangerous to hang around a “Jonah” because you suffer losses with him.


  1. By all means, avoid any Jonah association in your life.
  2. Do not go to where God has not sent you; and do not do what God has not told you to do.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the tragedy of Jonah. Rid me of any wrong association in my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
