“When God saw what they had done and how they had put a stop to their evil ways, he changed his mind and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened. This change of plans greatly upset Jonah, and he became very angry. So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.” The Lord replied, “Is it right for you to be angry about this?” (Jonah 3:10-4:4NLT)
Hello family I sure we all have at lest one person that we detest, that we don’t like. And sometimes in our minds we wish to see their downfall We all had at lest one moment like that be honest with yourself! When we see Gods mercy rain on them we are not the first ones in line to be happy for them.
Well this is what Jonah was going through. When he finally surrendered to God and began to warn neniva of the impending doom he thought God was going to smight the city into a grease spot! But what happen instead the city turned away from evil and turned to God so God rained His mercy on them instead of hell fire.
This did not make Jonah happy he was full of anger so God asked him. “Is it right for you to be angry about this?” We are going to pause here for now but i want you to apply this question to you life(i am doing this as well) “Is it right for you to be angry about this?”. No music to listen to use that time to let the question sink in.
Much Love & God Bless
