Today is Friday, the 7 day of May in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of (Jonah 1:3).
But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, he went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.Jonah 1:3
In the above scripture, we can see how Jonah is trying to run away from the presence of God.
But let’s see what happened to Jonah in the bible.
God made the sea to became turbulent and after drawing lots, it was found out that Jonah was the cause; and so he was cast out into the sea.
But God had to ensure his mission was accomplished; so He sent a big fish to swallow Jonah, and after remaining in the belle of the fish for 3 days; it vomitted him ashore, and Jonah began his journey to Nineveh.
Beloved, the story of Jonah is symbolic to most of us who are facing the storms of life; simply because we are trying to run away from what God sent us to do here on earth.
Especially, the work of spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jonah’s preaching converted the people of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria who were the enemies of the Jews.
And do you know that the people of Israel enjoyed peace for a long while because of the Assyrians conversion.
Which means that if you are doing the work of spreading the gospel; you will be free from your enemies attack when you convert them.
