And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he (Jacob) said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!” (Genesis 32:26)
Hold fast to the LORD your God. (Joshua 23:8)
Smith Wigglesworth said this:
“If you are left alone with God and you cannot get to a place of victory, it is a terrible time. You must never let go, whatever you are seeking—fresh revelation, light for your path, some particular need—never let go. Victory is ours if we are earnest enough. You must always master that with which you are wrestling. If darkness covers you, if a fresh revelation is what you need, or if your mind needs to be relieved, always get the victory.”
So the question really is, “Can you hold God?” Yes you can! Sincerity can hold Him, dependence can hold Him, weakness can hold Him — “For when I am weak, then I am strong” — 2 Corinthians 12:10.
You can hold Him in your prayer closet, in the prayer meeting, everywhere — “If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” — Revelation 3:20
But, self righteousness cannot hold him, high mindedness cannot hold him, thinking you are something when you are nothing cannot hold Him.
Jesus promised to never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). But the choice is ours whether we want to hold Him or not. We can either hold fast or let go. Jacob determined to hold fast and not to let go. Which will it be for you? How bad do you want the blessing?
