Good day my Dear Brothers and sisters in the Lord. May the peace of God abide with you all.
The Bible text for our reflections this morning is Jonah 1: 1-10
Beloved, Have you ever run away or refuse an assignment from God before?
Many people, on different occasions refuse to work on behalf of God on Earth. Many give human centered excuses why they are not ready and do not want to take up such responsibilities for God. This is what we call an act of disobedience towards God.
Jonah wanted to be smarter than God by running away from the assignment.
Guard Against Disobedience
As believers we must always guard against disobeying God. The truth is that you cannot run away from God.
The instruction was straight forward, “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it…. But Jonah run away from the Lord and headed to Tarshish.”
You cannot run away from God. Please accept the charge and do it for him. Remember , he will not leave you nor forsake you.
Remain blessed and protected.
