Jonah was on a ship headed for Tarshish.

Thereโ€™s nothing wrong with sailing to Tarshish, except that it is far away from Nineveh, where Jonah was supposed to go to deliver Godโ€™s message.

So when the ship encountered a great storm, Jonah knew it was because of his disobedience.

At Jonahโ€™s insistence, his fellow mariners cast him into the depths of the sea to stop the storm. It looked like the end of Jonah and his ministry.

But the Lord hadnโ€™t given up on Jonahโ€”just as He hadnโ€™t given up on the people of Nineveh and just as He doesnโ€™t give up on any of us.

As Micah taught, the Lord does not delight in condemning us, but โ€œhe delighteth in mercy.โ€ When we turn to Him, โ€œhe will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and [He will] cast all [our] sins into the depths of the seaโ€ (Micah 7:18–19).
