Bible Text: Jonah 2:1-10 |


God wanted Jonah to reach out to the cruel and brutal Assyrians by having him preach to their capital city of Nineveh. Jonah tried to sail away from God’s plans for him, but God caused a storm to nearly sink the ship. Jonah was thrown into the sea to try to calm the storm. Jonah’s life was spared by being swallowed by a huge fish. After that ordeal he reluctantly went to Nineveh. The good news for us all is God can and will use even reluctant obedience.
