Let us muse today from Jonah 1:6-12 and Jonah’s foolish disobedience in his storm. Let us look at distancing oneself from God. Jonah is sleeping in apathy and the captain awakens him to pray for their predicament. The men on board want to know if the problem is on board and they choose lots and the lot falls on Jonah. The men on board or exceedingly afraid because Jonah has told them that he was running from God. Jonah told them to throw him overboard and the sea would become calm. Oh how our God has ways of cornering up those for whom He loves.
