letting go can be such a difficult thing to do. The famous saying, let go and let God! We throw it around as if it is such an easy thing to do. The truth of the matter is, letting go is very hard to do for most of us. Yet everything difficult seems to be the most rewarding. What exactly is letting go? I believe it to be, letting go of anything that keeps us bound up. So many of us hold on to childhood pain, we have trouble forgiving ourselves and or others. Some of us simply need to forgive ourselves. If we have asked God for forgiveness, we have been forgiven.
Psalm 103:12New International Version (NIV)
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Letting go, is trusting God to direct your path.
Luke 9:23 [Full Chapter]
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
To deny oneself, is to let go. Why so many of us struggle to surrender to God? The world is alluring to all of us, always trying to gain control of our hearts. Anything that we haven’t given over to Christ, is holding us back from the fullness of Christ! I talk to people and they always say I’m not ready yet! Not ready? If your not ready now, what makes you think you will be ready later? What lies have power over you? Are you listening to lies about who you are? What bad you have done? Are you listening to lies saying you can’t quit smoking, quit drugs, quit drinking, looking at porn, you can’t leave an abusive relationship, You can’t overcome your fear, your anger, your gambling problem? GIVE!!! Give it over to Christ, Let Go!
James 4:1 [Full Chapter]
[ Submit Yourselves to God ] What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?
Seek Him, follow Him. Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Once you do, that heaviness over you will leave. Bound up!! He came to break the chains. Psalm 2:3 “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”
Psalm 146:7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free,
Let Jesus take the wheel of your life, put Him in the drivers seat. Trust God and see what will come of your life He is faithful. trust me, I did and when I did He blessed me! This gift of poetry came at age 31 when I gave my life to Him. When I surrendered. I will never tell you it is easy what I will tell you is it will be worth it! If you wont do it for yourself do it for those you love.
Jesus father I pray that today’s message would reach hearts! Today Lord anoint this word to touch the heart of everyone who reads it, and give them the power by the Holly spirit to let Go! Help them surrender to you today God. Give them the courage to pick up their crosses and to follow you. Break the chains now Lord by the blood of Jesus! For those who have been following you and are stuck simply of letting go of something you have already been speaking to them about God, give them the strength to let go> In Jesus name Amen!
