I love that scene. It perfectly illustrates this verse, which, coincidentally, was insight gained in the belly of a big fish:
“Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.” Jonah 2:9
Remember Jonah? He tried to run away from God and — gulp! — into the belly of a big fish went Jonah for a few humbling days.
Sometimes our best insight comes in the dark.
What worthless idols are you clinging to? Maybe you should listen to Dory and Jonah — “Let go!”
Father, thank you for speaking to us, even through cartoons. 🙂
I would like to let go now of these worthless idols:______________________________.
I’d like to take a leap of faith and fall back into your arms. It’s safe there. I know You have a plan.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord. “plans for your welfare, and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
