In Jonah Ch.4, he was upset, angry and went out of the city to isolated himself. He was further upset and angry when the shelter that he made and the shade that God had given were taken out of him. In those moments of frustration and disappointment, God works in our lives to show what kind of people are we and what kind of God we serve.—-more—-
We make shelters around us such as distraction and finding our own solution to escape anxiety, frustration, and anger. God may give shelters around us such as the earthly blessings that we enjoy. But we need to remember that they are given to be taken away. When they are taken out of us, we know Him better as Jonah came to know that He is a compassionate God when what he got were taken out of him.
