Sometimes God asks us to do or go places that we may not agree with. Maybe we fear the unknown or are so content in our life that to step out of that comfy enviornment, we would have to experience discomfort. Jonah knows this better than anyone. He was given a task directly from God and as we will soon learn, his disobedience, fear and anxiety cost him an immense amount of time, pain and almost his life.
