Jonah 1:1-2a – Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, “Arise, go…”
Notice that God’s word ‘came to Jonah’ and spoke to him. God had a job for Jonah to do, a specific task that required trust and faith in God. Jonah did not agree with the plan of the Lord because of fear and because of his own opinion. When God clearly speaks, obedience to Him is what should follow.
God speaks to you through His word and through the Holy Spirit the message of hope. Allow the word of God to come to you and speak to you this week. Then put your trust completely in the Lord and be obedient to Him. Finally, be bold in what he shows you and ‘Arise and Go!’ God bless you.
