Jonah finally saw the light, while sitting in the dark recesses of the belly of the fish. In Jonah 2:7-10 we see Jonah repent and tell God the he will do whatever God asks of him. Jonah had no promise of salvation from his situation. But he still recognized that he needed to get right with God. Do we seek to repent, even when there is no obvious gain to be had? Are we more concerned about the state of our relationship with God than our own personal comfort? Only when we get real with God will we repent of our disobedience solely to see our relationship with God restored. If we are repenting only to try and better our own situation, then we have missed the point. God in His mercy may choose to change our circumstances, but regardless, He will change us when we repent.
