God Lets People Go

"Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs" (Jonah 2:8).

So many amazing things we learn about God from Jonah. Here's one: If you want to leave, God will let you. He may pursue you and cause (or at least allow) painful consequences to come upon you. But if you insist on clinging to something else more than God, he will let you. He will not force himself on anyone.
