Suffering is the issue of life that causes us to miss understand God the most. So many people fail to understand how God works in their lives when they suffer.

Jonah 1:1-16 introduces us to a literary masterpiece. It is rich in irony both poetically and theologically. Jonah, a prophet, is commanded to call Nineveh, the seat of Assyrian culture, to repentenance. However, this divine act of mercy was repulsive to the prophet. So we read of the only prophet who ever tried to run from God. His fleeing the presence of God become illogical and suicidal as he endured loving chastisement through a storm that nearly destroyed his boat. As we learn about Jonah, we begin to understand the sinfulness and smallness of people in conrast to the might, wisdom, and mercy of God. We are left considering whether our faith is big enough to consider the mercy of God?

Redemption: How Jesus Frees Us
The hero of the Exodus is Jesus. But this week we're introduced to the secondary hero, Moses. Moses was born into a climate of great affliction and oppression towards God's people. In the face of affliction, trust Jesus. He's always working his plan—even in the midst of our failure. God's plan was for Moses to deliver his people, and his plan continued even after Moses became a murderer and fled for his life. We see that God is always working his plan, even in the midst of our failure, and even

Job 38:4-10 “Where were you when I established the earth? Tell [Me], if you have understanding.  Who fixed its dimensions? Certainly you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?  What supports its foundations? Or who laid its cornerstone  while the morning stars sang together and all…

David declares the greatness and vastness of God's knowledge and judgement in Psalm 11. We all have tendency to seek refuge in earthly places, but David declares he will seek refuge in God. Why? Because God see's and examines all of humanity. Therefore, he knows and executes judgement upon the wicked and the righteous. The wicked to condemnation and the righteous to blessing. Interresting is the declaration of the righteousness of God towards believers as David suffers. The implication is that suffering may be the blessing God gives the righteous.

Jonah 1:1-16 we observe the Prophet Jonah fleeing from the Presence of the Lord. His illogical pursuit is hindered by a God-orchestrated storm – which should have changed his heart. However, in defiance he tells the sailors to cast him overboard. Yet, God still shows mercy appointing a fish to swallow him. And then answering his prayer 3 days later by directing the fish to vomit him out on dryland. Jonah chapter 2 demonstrates
Scripture Reading 13 Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked? 14 When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future. 15 In this meaningless life of mine…

The will of God discussed as understandable in two parts: Sovereign control and Commands. When understood together this paradoxical truth is a salve to the heart that can't understand how a good God can allow evil to exist.
