"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it's going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)
And so it is also with anybody sent on a mission by the Spirit. Like Jona, sent to Ninive, but went to Tarshish. So the wind of the Spirit blew him via a fish's belly to the heart of the earth, then on to dry land and eventually his divine destination.
Every believer has a divine mission: God wants our lives endorsed by the Gospel. We can choose to be like Jonah and take the long and hard road, or we can be obedient and surrender our lives to the Spirit.
