There are so many Bible verses that encourage us to let go and let God. We read it anywhere, hear it often time, too often that it becomes so cliché in our eyes and ears, but maybe not in our hearts.
We know we should let go of the things we hold so tight that hinder us from trusting the Lord, yet it’s hard to let it go because we want to take control of it ourselves.
We thought our ideas are the best; we thought we would overcome it by holding so much until it hurts, but we forget to trust.
We may say we trust the Lord, but, we also want to take everything under our control. Dear friends, it is not trusting the Lord. It doubts His power that He is able.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your understanding,” the Proverbs said. It is our understanding that set us back from trusting God.
We all were, or even are there; I was there too and sometimes am still there. But remember this: that we are not a savior and could do nothing to save ourselves from the trial and temptation.
We all need someone higher and bigger and mightier and smarter than us, and there is One. His ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts our thoughts. Trust the Lord and let it go (:
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.Isaiah 55:9
