Jonah 4:1-2

A minister at my church mentioned something about Nineveh and how God’s mercy was so great towards them. It dawned on me that God’s mercy is so great towards those He has chosen; not even a prophet can stand against what God destines for someone. When God decided to have mercy on Nineveh, it displeased Jonah greatly. What He speaks concerning someone will come to pass despite what even prophets may think or desire. Even Jonah attested to this. It’s comforting to know that God is faithful beyond what people say about us. His love is unstoppable. But within His love and mercy lies trust.

“When you love someone, it makes it easier for you to trust them.” Likewise when you trust someone, you tend to love them. And when you love and trust someone, you give them your heart  — all of it, because you know you can trust them with your heart. Sometimes it’s easy to turn people away because of fear the relationship will end. Or, you can let that opportunity in and then allow fear and worry to contaminate the joy you have because you are worried it won’t work out. But this is not the case with God. He is faithful. (2 Timothy 2:13).

We need to trust God. We need to trust that God knows what He is doing. What He is doing is good. If we say we love God, then we should entrust to Him all of our heart because He is not a man that will disappoint or break it. And trusting is an act of faith. And to have faith and express faith is to trust in God. – Eruore Oboh
