Surfacing Anger and Disappointment – God had an eternal plan that was contrary to Jonah’s emotional needs. God allowed circumstances and events to bring to surface Jonah’s lingering anger and disappointment toward the Father. However, even with a bad attitude, God blessed Jonah and took care of Him. God will build our trust in Him as part of our overall refinement. He desires a people who will not lose track of His heart when things do not make sense. He will not let dead places fester. Our refinement in the area of trust is meant to break our dependence on temporary, earthly things and to bring us more of Him. It is for our freedom and for our good.
