Trust in the Lord and not your own understanding. The one thing we can count on is God loving us. You and I can not run away from God. He uses circumstances to not hurt or harm, He uses them so we can draw closer unto Him.
Listening to God expresses how much you love God. He takes broken pieces and turns them into masterpieces. When you simply follow God, He will provide everything that He has promised.
The storms in our lives are used to get our attention so we may hear God calling us to draw closer to Him. When we do not listen and refrain from answering God, He continues brewing a storm so eventually we will lean on Him and not our own understanding. If you just look to The Lord, help is on the way. Do not let your feelings come in between you obeying God.
Three specific things we see in the life of Jonah:
- Even when Jonah disobeyed, God still pursued him.
- In the midst of the problem, He will always protects because He is faithful.
- Endure the testing of every storm
