So the captain came and said to him, What do you mean, you sleeper? Arise, call upon your God! Jonah 1:6 (AMPC)
In another place it’s God who tells us to call on Him and that He would answer us. Jeremiah 33:3.
But here in our theme Scripture it’s an ungodly man who implores Jonah to call upon God!
They were in a violent storm on the high seas and while all the others on the ship called out to their dead helpless gods for deliverance, the only covenant man belonging to and serving the only one true God was asleep!
Wherever you’re located in life whether in marriage, family, workplace, or community do not be overwhelmed by the sleep of passiveness, indifference, or dis-concern in the face of crisis while the ungodly are aggressively employing their ineffective wicked methods. Arise and call on the only one true God who made heaven and earth, who alone can turn around everything for the good of all.
