God loves us and wants to involve us in His redemptive objectives. But what if God’s objectives and our preferences clash? In the life of the Old Testament character, Jonah, that clash prompted him to run from God. Even in his running, God was merciful as He pursued Jonah. But there were some miserable days and nights as Jonah ran from God. What can we learn from Jonah’s story about God, and about our own propensity to run from God when we don’t get our way?
