The sad truth is that in my life I tend to try and try until I have no more options, until there is nothing more I can do AND THEN I let go and let God! Sigh!
I am learning however, to stop, think things through, and try to release things to the Lord. And you know, when I do, things do work out! And if they don't work out right then and there (which, lets be honest hardly ever happens) my attitude in the problem starts to change and the problem does not seem so overwhelming any more. Sometimes, the problem recedes so much that over time, I look back and see how it got resolved without my interference!!!!
So, my encouragement to you is to practice letting go, and let God! He has the bigger picture, He knows why you are going though what you are going through and He will work it out for your good if you lean on Him and trust in Him to do so (Rom 8 v 28).
How do you do that? How do you let go?
- When the problem comes to mind, start praising the Lord
- When the problem comes to mind remind yourself that your God is way bigger than any problem
- Remind yourself of what God has already done for you
- Play your praise music at full volume and sing, because you cannot talk/sing and think at the same time (if you are focusing on what you are saying/singing)
Can you think of any other ways to let go? Please share with us in the comments, we all could use good Godly advice!
