I don’t want to end up in the belly of a whale.
I mean I’ve never been in one, but I would have to assume it would be an awfully dark place. And isn’t that exactly what it’s like when you’re not in God’s will – dark?
I get it – sometimes God asks us to do really scary things. I don’t know the exact reason Jonah did not want to go to Nineveh because I’m not him. But I do know this – the reason was attached to some form of fear.
And we see where that fear landed him.
So here’s my question – which “fear” sounds worse?
1. God’s will
2. Not God’s will
If you’re walking in God’s will that means He is walking with you. Our great protector. Our refuge. The ultimate superhero if you will. But if you’re not walking with God – if you say no – then you’ll find yourself in a deep, dark place that just downright stinks.
Y’all, just say yes.
Just thank God that He chose you in the first place.
