God is overly gracious and merciful!
None of us should ever run from doing good and serving others as Godly people. When ever we do that, God is going to make it very hard for us and sometimes even SUFFER us until we see the need to help and bless OTHERS.
In the book of Jonah, God saw that a wicked city was in need of spiritual guidance. He commissions Pastor Jonah to go to that city and preach THUS SAITH THE LORD and encourage them to REPENT as so many of us need to do TODAY.
Probably having been reading what was happening over in Nineveh through the media service of the day, "THE SCROLLS," Pastor Jonah decides to disobey God and run from that commission. I can honestly understand why. Back in those days, society was KILLING THE PREACHERS who tried to tell them to OBEY GOD. Nobody really wants to die a horrid death. That's why Pastor Jonah ran. That is the worst mistake any of us can make though, in our life. The mistake of being disobedient to God's instructions for SERVICE.
Most of us are aware of the trouble and curse that followed Pastor Jonah until he heeded God's call to go and preach to the people of Nineveh and beckon them to REPENT. He was thrown from a ship heading to Tarshish by the captain and crew because they recognized that it was his sin and disobedience that was bringing them anguish on the sea.
When we sin, we don't just hurt ourselves, we hurt those around us. Let's aim to keep that in our mind daily.
God is overly gracious and merciful. Even while he was punishing Pastor Jonah to get him back on the right track, he was caring for him all the way. Let's see what Jonah 4:6 says And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
What a God! Even during Pastor Jonah's trials, God was caring for him. God is overly gracious and merciful. Global friend, what ever you are going through will come to pass. Don't give up. Stay praying. Stay reading your Bible. Stay focused on God and this gracious and merciful sovereign being, will deliver you sooner than you think and SHOCK ALL YOUR HATERS, ENEMIES AND FRENEMIES.
Hope is ahead! Don't give up!
