Letting go is hard. Our human minds get so caught up in preconceived notions of how things should be – that we won’t let God be God.
We have trust issues. No doubt. People have hurt us. Life has pelted us with all kinds of crazy scenarios. We get very set in what we think should happen. We try and control, even manipulate, situations. If we get right down to it, when we behave this way we are basically telling God that we really don’t trust Him. We are taking away His chance to show up and show off.
Whatever situation you are in today that is soaking up every ounce of your energy, every ounce of your time, every ounce of your peace of mind — let go. Really let go. Give it to God today. And remember, no take backs.
“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies head, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13-14
