God has appointed a time for everything, and made it so that man can’t know the plan. Why? So that man will have to TRUST God (and His word).

Be careful and don’t gripe at God about the confusing times. God alone saves. Your mouth cannot save you. Money cannot save you. God alone provides. Therefore, fear God, and be thankful for the life He has given you.

There are issues at times that make God's sovereignty seem confusing - we can’t always understand WHY bad/hard things happen. These issues should lead us to trusting in the One who created all things. It is God’s gift to enjoy life in the midst of hard times - through FAITH in GOD, even while suffering.

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

Malachi 2:17-3:6 You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you say, "How have we wearied Him?" In that you say, "Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them," or, "Where is the God of justice?"

God has not rejected Israel, and his promises have not failed. None can separate people from the love of God, and this statement is not rendered fallible by Israel's rejection of God. On the contrary, Israel's rejection of God show that God's sovereignty somehow still leaves room for human freedom and responsibility. God, in his sovereign will, is able to preserve a remnant of those who have faith in Jesus while still allowing for freedom of human choice, and ultimately desires to show mercy upon all. Each person is to make their own decision of faith in God without presumption of either being lost or saved because of a connection or lack thereof to God's ethnic people of Israel.
