Sometimes, God asks you to do something you don’t want to do.
Have you ever stubbornly resisted going where He wants you to go? (Jonah 1:1-3)
God had a specific plan for Jonah that Jonah detested. Jonah decided to run from God. Things did not go well for Jonah.
- Is there a person or people group you would not want to reach if God directed it?
- What can you do to stay in conversation with God when you are in deep water?
Take heart in knowing that God can use imperfect and reluctant people to accomplish His plans. Of course, if you cooperate, things will go more smoothly for you.
