92. Let go and let God

Let go and let God. Haven't we all heard that statement a number of times? I have heard it so often that it has lost its impact for me. It becomes one of those mundane things you hear. For me it became a cliché.

But I heard it loud and clear again this week. I heard it in my spirit. Let go and let God. And I want you to hear it this week too. What does it practically mean to let go and to let God? Does it mean we must look the other way and pretend that nothing was wrong? Should we hide our face in the ground like an ostrich and pretend that everything is okay? Should we sit back and expect things to fall into our laps? Should we stop doing our part and just trust that all will fall into place?

I think through the questions I asked you probably answered the questions for yourself.

No, you shouldn't sit back and do nothing. And no, by letting go you are not saying that your problems don't exist.  By letting go you are acknowledging them, but you are choosing to not let your problems get under your skin. You are in fact saying: 'Yes, I see you, you are there, but I have a God much stronger and more capable than you. I have a God of more than enough as My Father. I have a Father Who can see the future, Who knows the best for me and Who will not allow evil to befall me.'

You see I realized again that we are children of the Most High God. Princes of the King of kings and Lord of lords. We are the kings and lords that He is King and Lord over. And if we truly realize that we are, then what do we have to worry about?

Have you ever seen the Queen of England worrying about her finances? No, of course not, she is a billionaire. Can you also ever imagine her looking after her own safety, checking if all the doors of Buckingham Palace are locked? No, of course not, she has a whole team of safety specialists looking after her safety.

And so I can go on, but you get the point. Now why are we any different? Our Father is infinitely richer than she will ever dream to be and He has all the 'safety specialists' lined up to protect us. So why are we so worried? Why are we so stressed out? Well, the answer really is because we trust more in what we can see around us than in the living God. We trust more in the news we receive than in the Bible. And that is why we are frantic and stressed out. If His Kingdom and all it entails was more of a reality to us than this world, we will be relaxed, filled with all His goodness and His Shalom peace.

We need to learn to look up, to follow Him and to trust Him above all else. Trust in a God that is good and wants only the best for you. Expect good rather than evil to befall you. Let go of all the stress you are holding on to. Let go of all the junk wearing you down. Rather surround yourself with the surreal experience of walking hand in hand with God, following Him wherever He goes. He knows best.

Let go and let God. Acknowledge the issue, then do your best in all situations, give it to Him and go on with your life, knowing that He will work out all things for your good (Romans 8:28).

Father please help us to live a 'let go' life. Help us to look up to You and not our problems. We give it all to You and trust You to help us and to show us the way. We love You. Amen
