Rerouting Our Expectations
Passage: Jonah 1–4
God will make a way for His people… it is up to us on how we respond to that path. We are tempted to only be happy with God when His plan helps us and keeps us safe. You and I might struggle with how God never asks our thoughts about how He goes about His plan. We are called to show the grace and mercy to those that we hate, would we be obedient or turn the other way and run. Jonah is an excellent example not to follow when the way maker calls us to love those we can’t stand.
