Well hello there…its been a while, I have been busy and super occupied, but today I can finally squeeze in an article on Letting go and letting God in. Ever found yourself between a rock and a hard place? it’s in human nature to always want to solve everything by ourselves, even things we’re not in control of.
Letting go and letting God in is something that I’ve always wanted to write about because it’s something that God has been teaching me and frankly speaking I’ve found myself a couple of times in situations where i had to surrender and acknowledge that I’m weak.
When you’re in the midst of overwhelming, challenging circumstances…let go and let God in.
When things get out of control, let go and let God.
Well how do we do this?
God’s word contains over a thousand of Bible promises waiting to be claimed in faith.
When I read the scriptures, I can clearly see when it is really appropriate to let Go and let God handle everything.
In Matthew 6:34, Jesus says, “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
I am guilty of attempting to worry about everything, more especially my future.
Will I be able to pay bills?
Will I be able to care for my family?
Will my child be saved?
The reality is I can control very few things. Sickness can fall at a moments notice. I don’t have the Spiritual power to save my child.
It’s why Jesus said in Matthew 6:27, “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”
Worrying about the future does absolutely nothing. It’s practically just a waste of time. It doesn’t add a single minute to my life, matter of fact its emotionally draining.
To cast all my cares for He cares for me.
I can go on my knees and say to God ”Lord, I don’t have the power to control or orchestrate my life. In light of this, I am letting go of the illusion of control. I am giving up on trying to figure everything out and am instead trusting in God with all my heart.”
When it comes to worrying about life’s circumstances, I truly can let God and let God
No scenario is beyond prayer. Many people fail in battle because they wait until the hour of battle – others succeed because they have gained victory while on their knees long before the battle began.I cannot emphasis on this enough, l have tried many things in life through my abilities but nothing works easier and faster, than committing all situations to God in prayers.
I think this is why Paul says in Philippians 4:6, “…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
How do I overcome anxiety? How do I receive peace from God?
By actively, persistently bringing my requests before God. By taking hold of each care that lays heavily upon me and casting it upon God. By doing the hard work of praying about each and every care that burdens my heart.
In this sense, I must NOT let go and let God. I must run hard to God and wrestle in prayer and grapple with his promises. I must fight against my sinful tendency to worry and seek to put to death my sinful desire for control.
So yes, when life is overwhelming, I can infinitely trust God. I can let go of my desire to control my life and instead joyfully submit to what he has for me.
Believe in God when things don’t make sense. Believe in Him about your bad debt. Believe in God about your health, about your circumstance for nothing is impossible with Him. His power is limitless.
Have a blessed and fruitful evening.
Love and love.
