Escape from God’s Calling? No Way! ( Jonah 1:1-17&2:10-3:10)

When God asked Jonah to go to the city of Niniveh to preach repentance and salvation, Jonah has other taughts and plan to escape from Gods call. 

But God always use every circumstance in our life to guide and train us for his ministry. 

For each step Jonah has taken the Lord was always with him to guide and shield him from the stormy sea.

Even though Jonah taught was canal as he believed that his decision to be thrown into the sea was his idea, but God once more proved him that he put the word in his mouth and prepared a Big fish to save him.

When he arrived in Niniveh, he was watching from the Hill to see if God will destroy Niniveh but was disappointed when his expectation and plan failed . 

Jonah was obliged to enter the city and preach repentance or be destroyed, the people’s listened to Jonahs preaching and repented and God relented from destroying the city.

Lesson:

 When you run from God you go nowhere fast.

. Even though we turn the wrong way God will not give up on us.

But often

God send us.

We head the other way.

God sends the storm to wake us up.

but we still take a nap.

God sends a message.

but we get  tossed .

God send Jesus .

But we don’t believe.

Those who have ears let them hear what the spirit says to the church.
