The Essential 100, Day 49
A mission. God gave Jonah a mission. Read Jonah 1-4.
God knew the people of Nineveh were sinful. God had provided a way for them to hear the good news and have the opportunity to repent. That way was Jonah. However, Jonah didn’t want to be used in that way. Jonah didn’t want the people to repent, he wanted them to be destroyed and judged. The biggest obstacle standing in the way of the repentance of the Ninevite people was Jonah.
God has plans and missions for us. God knows that we are to be doing the things that he has for us. However, we don’t always want to do what God wants us to do. What amazing, miraculous thing is God desiring to do that our disobedience is the biggest obstacle to overcome? Do we truly desire to see God’s will done in our life and in the lives of those around us? Are we willing to do whatever God asks us to do to see that happen?
