As Jonah foolishly attempted to outrun his call to preach, he ran smack into God’s providence. God sent a ferocious storm, revealed Jonah as its cause to everyone around, and then commanded a great fish to swallow him up after he was hurled into the sea. Alistair Begg shows us that although Jonah’s disobedience threatened the lives of everyone he encountered, God’s providence was greater, and His will would not be thwarted—not for Jonah, and not for us.
4But the Lord hurled a great wind upon the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship threatened to break up.
