Daniel Bentley, Jonah 3, August 26, 2020
It is impossible to outrun, outwit or outlast God. Jonah's book begins with God calling Jonah to go to the Ninevites to tell them to repent. But Jonah didn’t want to go. He believed that if he brought that message to the Ninevites they might actually repent and God would forgive them. He wanted God to judge them. So he disobeyed. But God didn't let him off easily. God cares as much about the messenger as He does about the message. After being swallowed and spit out by a great whale,the message Jonah finally delivered was short: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown." It was true and it was effective. Pray, preach, and trust God for the results!
