But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.” So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
-Prophet Jonah was in trouble & finally humbled himself in submission to do Gods will. He knew the key to preservation was thanksgiving & obedience. He prayed with an expectation of salvation & deliverance from the mouth of the fish. The condition of his release was to offer thanksgiving to the Lord & take heed his pending assignment. During the time of Moses, the sacrifice of thanksgiving was tied to the peace offering. It was a voluntary sacrifice where the people offered cakes, unleavened bread & the priest could sprinkle blood on the altar, making it a binding covenant (Lev 7:12-15). Later the Lord instructed that, whoever offers praise glorifies Me & to him who orders his conduct aright, I will show My salvation (Psa 50:23).
Salvation belongs to You only Father, the creator of heaven & earth. We humbly come before You asking You to order our steps that we may always be inclined to do Your will. Be with all those who are sick, suffering & in other difficult situations. Bless us, our families, friends, leaders & nation, that Your peace may always dwell within us. There is no other God like You, we praise You & give You thanks. Amen
