Jonah 1:13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring [it] to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.
Jonah 1:14 Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, We beseech thee, O Lord, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O Lord, hast done as it pleased thee.
Jonah 1:15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.
Jonah 1:16 Then the men feared the Lord exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the Lord, and made vows.

Many a times we have tried hard to force 'good' to happen to us and our friends. We fail to take time to study and ask God to reveal his will to us. It is the inward belief in men, that there is non-contextual 'good' and 'bad'. This means that men have tended to believe that we can just call this or that GOOD or BAD regardless of the context in which it would have occurred.

This is dangerous, because it can lead to unwanted fatalities. Rather, by allowing the Godly call to take center-stage, we save not only our lives, but even our faith in God's capabilities. There is another perception to the face value of a situation!

The word of God in the book of Jonah goes on to say...
Jonah 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
A vanity appears to be wholesome, yet the inside is empty. Its a baloon, filled with nothing, yet appearing BIGGER than life.

While in the belly, Jonah goes on to say...
Jonah 2:9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay [that] that I have vowed. Salvation [is] of the Lord.
Jonah 2:10 And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry [land].

It will be good to find christians staying on top of situations. Seeing rivers in deserts. Even when things are hard, always look out to God through Christ, for that other perspective.
