Jonah’s response to God’s call was to disobediently run in the opposite direction…as far as he could go from the place God wanted him. In his flight, Jonah attempted to escape the Will of God…thinking if he went far enough away, God would somehow “forget” him, or no longer seek to use him in Nineveh. But Jonah also realized he couldn’t hide from God. And nor can we. Psalm 139:7-12 gives a wonderful description of all the places we can’t flee from God’s presence…from the lofty heavens to the far side of the sea, God is there. And just like Jonah, when God says “Go.” He will patiently pursue us until we oblige.
