While reading about Jonah in my boy's home-school lesson one evening, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me. Jonah willingly ran from God's command to go to Ninevah. He not only ran, but He told God he wouldn't go. Most of us know the story how Jonah was thrown into the sea and swallowed by a big fish. If not for the big fish Jonah probably would have died we can safely assume. Despite Jonah's blatant disobedience to God's command, God still had a rescue plan for Jonah.
