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.
Sometimes we think we can outsmart God by doing what pleases us; at other times, we are not concerned about what God is telling us to do because we think it has got nothing to do with us.
We think that our contributions are an insignificant percentage; but our selfish alternatives always cause problems for us.
Many people are facing problems in their lives because they decided to go the other direction when God instructed them.
People who refuse God’s call on their lives always go down.
The assignment God gives us may not be an easy one but it yields good rewards. Therefore let us serve God with all our resources because he is faithful to reward us in Jesus Mighty Name.
