Scripture is always speaking to us personally if we will listen. It is easy to get lost in the details. Maybe we feel Jonah is disobedient for not wishing to go to Nineveh. We miss that we often pass up on proclaiming the gospel in far less dangerous places than Nineveh.
God is always trying to speak to us if we are willing to listen. God is a still small voice we must actively listen for. Sometimes it is hard to know what God wishes for us to do and legitimately God's will is unknown to us. Sometimes we fail to hear God simply because we do not like what the still small voice has to say.
