God calls Jonah to go to the city of Ninevah and help them see the errors in their ways. Instead, Jonah gets on the next boat out, gets himself thrown overboard, and ends up in the belly of a big fish. He says, “No way!” to God. But God is patient with Jonah, and he’s patient with us too. Even when our faith is weak and we doubt his plan for our lives, when we tell him, “No way!” when he puts us in an impossible situation, God works faith and strength in our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
Scripture: Isaiah 45:18-22
