Run to the Truth

Posted: March 27, 2017

Growing up I listened to a lot of contemporary Christian music. I’ll never forget the old song “Big Fish” by a group called FFH (Far From Home). The song is all about the story of Jonah and the lyrics go like this:

Are you in the big fish?
Are you sitting in the belly of a world gone mad?
Have you turned your back in His wish?
On His will for your life, have you made Him sad?
Do you want to get out of the big fish?
Listen to God and follow His plan
And you won't be part of the main dish
He'll spit you out on to dry land

But my favorite part is the last verse:

You're sinking low how low can you go
So low that you don't know which way to go
To the truth or to the dare?
If you take the dare then you'll be swallowed there
But run to the truth and you will find
That a rescue arrives right in time
To pick you up back on your feet
Obedience is neat.

Are you sitting in the belly of a big fish? Have you turned your back on God’s will or plan for you? Run to the truth and your rescue will arrive just in time. It’s just how God works!

Then the Lord ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.”
- Jonah 2:10 NLT

Lord, thank you that if I turn back to you, I can trust that you will turn things around for me and set my feet on the right path. In Jesus’ name, amen.
