The Wanderer

As I walked through the wilderness of this world …

Jonah’s evasions, God’s confrontations

Ray Ortlund points out the sovereignty of God displayed in the experience of the unwilling prophet, Jonah.  These things I have learned and am learning by experience, often painful.

The Lord hurled a great wind upon the sea. Jonah 1:4

The lot fell on Jonah. Jonah 1:7

The Lord appointed a great fish. Jonah 1:17

The word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time. Jonah 3:1

The Lord God appointed a plant. Jonah 4:6

God appointed a worm. Jonah 4:7

God appointed a scorching east wind. Jonah 4:8

The Lord has more ways of confronting me than I have ways of evading him.
