Do you remember the children’s game hide and seek..... did you ever get such a good hiding place nobody ever caught you maybe you did?


This opening chapter of Jonah is all about the Christian game of hide and seek from the will of God - Jonah tries to get into such a good hiding place that God won’t bother Him anymore... which involves him continually running and hiding running down to Joppa, hiding below deck on a ship heading for Tarshih.When you consider trying to hide from God it’s ridiculous when you think about it...God is omniscient, omnipresent omnipotent yet Jonah acts like a child who play’s hide and seek with his father and who hides behind the fathers leg as his back is turned.
