“Then they picked up Jonah and threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging. The men feared the Lord even more, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows.”
Jonah 1:15-16 HCSB
Jonah told the men on the ship why the sea was raging against them and that the only way to make it stop was for them to throw him into the sea. I don’t know that Jonah truly wanted this, but it happened all the same. What I find interesting is how the Lord used this storm on the sea to not only get Jonah on the right track, but also to bring glory to His name.
