Jonah Flees from the Lord. Jonah 1. What do we do when life takes an unexpected turn? God does send storms into our life, but many storms are of our own conjuring. Sometimes, even little things we do can be the first wind in a storm of own conjuring. God “provided” a whale, giving a path for Revival, Repentence, Obedience, and showing His Compassion. He does that for all of us, even today.
