He Arrives Even Before We Do

When we hear the call go to go and we run in the opposite direction, God has a way of having us thrown off the boat, swallowed by a larger fish and spit onto the shore where we are to serve.  God allows us to run and yet to know that he will arrive at our place of flight before we arrive, so he can direct our steps again.
