One of the most interesting stories in Scripture has to be that of Jonah. Here he was, a prophet of God, someone called of God, and yet‚ÄĒwhat? He ran away from God‚Äôs call. Then, after being
persuaded in a dramatic way to change his mind and obey the Lord, he did so‚ÄĒbut then only to do what? To complain that the people to whom he was called to witness actually repented and were spared the destruction that, otherwise, would have been theirs!
What an example of someone not at rest, not at peace‚ÄĒeven to the point where he cried out, ‚Äú ‚ÄėTherefore now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live!‚Äô ‚ÄĚ (Jon. 4:3, NKJV). Let‚Äôs look at Jonah and what we can learn from his restlessness and lack of peace.
