What Are You Running
Away From?

Jonah 1:3 (KJV)
"But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa, and he found a ship going to Tarshish ..."

When the Lord wants you to do something, Heíll make your life miserable until you accomplish it. Jonah tried his best to get away, but Godís will was stronger than Jonahís desire. Why donít we heed Godís voice? What about witnessing to the neighbor? Teaching a Sunday school class? Ministering to the elderly? Whatís holding you back from doing Godís will? Could it be laziness or rebellion? We shouldnít allow our flesh to stand in the way of Godís plan for our lives. Remember God wants our obedience and not our sacrifice. When we do Godís will, He promises that He will bless us and also the people we minister to.
