3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.
4 But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
We need to realize that we cannot hide from God. He sees and he knows everything, and he will find you wherever you are. It doesn't make sense dabbling in things that are not of Him, In the end God will find you and will lead you back towards him, all you need to do is listen to his calling. Let us pray for courage today.
Let us pray
We are grateful for life and strength, We ask today Lord for Courage, Courage to stand up to the devil and say "No, you will not get the best of me". Courage to know when we have sinned and to own up to it. Courage to stand strong and to realize that you will take care of us and we do not need to run, hide or be afraid. Help us to listen to your voice and to heed your warnings when we encounter evil. In Jesus name, Amen
