Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
However when the Lord sends or instructs us, the devil always has an alternative. For instance when you decide to obey the lord and pay your tithe the enemy comes to tell you what else you could have used the money for.
But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
Jonah wanted to outsmart God and go the opposite direction but God took him exactly where he was supposed to go.
Stick to God’s plan today, and avoid wasting time going in circles in Jesus Mighty Name.
