Running from God? Been there, bought the t/shirt!
“Jonah went 2500 miles out the way running from God. Talk about a wrong turn! The good news? God gives a second chance to turn around.” ~ Kurt Wallace
You would think a life-threatening sea storm and a few days in a fish’s belly would shake some sense into a person. Yet that wasn’t the case with Jonah. The final paragraphs of his story reveal a vengeful prophet who obeyed the Lord but allowed his heart to remain on the run.
Jonah paid a big price for running from God. Perhaps you have a habit, a plan, or a current course and you know it defies God’s will. Have you considered the cost?
There are consequences for wrongdoing. The Lord is holy and righteous, and allowing people to get away with sin is simply incompatible God’s plan for you. What’s more, the price for following your own will is high.
