Let Go And Let God!

Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will show to you today. (Ex. 14:13). 

We Americans use a number of words to describe a predicament. If you're from the East, you probably know about "being in a pinch." If you like to cook, you're "in a jam," or "in a pickle." If you're from the South, you're "between a rock and a hard place." . . . It may be that right now you find yourself in a predicament. . . . 

And what should your response be? 

Most people are prone to say, "God helps those who help themselves." People think that despicable saying comes from the Bible, but it doesn't. It's from the pit. No, God helps the helpless! As long as we're helping ourselves, who needs God?It's when we reach the end of our tether, and we're dangling out in space, that we finally cry out, "God, help me!" And God says, "I will, Let go." 

Letting go works against human nature. But God wants us to do just that---to freefall into His everlasting arms and trust completely in Him. 

Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication 

Let go. . . . Let God. 

Easier said than done. . . . right? 

Let's be honest. We are naturally stubborn creatures. We usually insist on having our own way in various situations whether we choose to admit it or not. The more emotionally attached we become to something or someone, the more difficult it would be to let go. 

The source of this process is trust. Trusting God and the people around us will allow us the flexibility to actually surrender our willingness to hold on. When we don't trust God and the people around us, we struggle with letting go. Lack of trust is one of the many reasons why relationships fail. Relationships of ALL kinds are built on trust. It is out of trust where respect and understanding can be mutually found. 

My dear friends, is there a pressing matter that concerns you? Let go and let God deal with it. Yes, it is that simple and will become a testament of your faith and trust in God and the people around you. 

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
