he will accomplish what God wants him to. Jonah believes anger will be his source of energy to do what God wants. I have never seen anger serve anyone well. There have been many times in my life when I was very angry and vengeful and determined to do what needed to be done to get to where I thought I needed to be. To either show people who had hurt me that I was better than they were or to be able to completely snub them as if I were better. In the end my anger may have kept me going but it was propelled by my own will and not God's. So where I ended up is where I put myself. It was not a good place. Anger is a very negative source of motivation. If I had listened to God's will I would of had an easier path than I did. And I am sure a very different life with alot less self inflicted pain. Anger looks glamerous and so courageous. It is none of those. True courage comes from those who are willing to overcome their anger in the name of Lord. The Lord is not the source behind anger. You must overcome anger so you can hear God's voice.
