It’s no secret when you can let go and let God, your life will be transformed.
As a matter of fact, in scripture we are told…
In other words, let go and let God handle it.
How to Let Go and Let God!
Let’s face it, letting go and letting God handle it, is a powerful way of living.
However, learning how to let go and let God is a process that takes time.
Being willing to let go of problems and challenges when they arise and letting God handle it, isn’t always easy.
Truth be told, it generally requires a conscious effort on your part to let go and give it to God.
That’s why it’s important that you pray, meditate and tell God your troubles.
Let God, Let Go of Your Trouble.
In prayer share with God the wounds of your heart. Let the power of God within you heal what needs to be healed.
Believe it or not, the power of God flows freely within and through you. No doubt about it, God is your path to love, peace and happiness.
Keep in mind, whenever you allow fear, doubt or frustration to linger in your mind. What you are really doing is blocking your awareness of God in your life.
However, when you are willing let go and let God handle any of the fear, doubt or frustration in your life. What you are really doing is opening yourself up to the insight and wisdom of God that resides within you.
What’s more, if you want God to direct your path, if you want God to bless you with an abundance of blessings. Then you absolutely must be willing to let go and let God take control of your life.
In a blog, Joel Osteen shared a story of how he was walking through a government building. They had two sets of double doors about fifteen feet apart. And they were both automatic doors. When he walked through the first set of doors, he had to let them totally close before the next set of doors would open. If he stayed at that first set of doors, the second set would not open. It’s the same principle in life. If you’re sitting around holding grudges or feeling sorry for yourself, you’re not going to see anything new.
Let Go and Let God Handle It!
That’s why you must be willing to close the door on the past.
Let go of the disappointment and regret. The past is in the past and it isn’t going to change. But living a joyful and happy life in the future requires a willingness to let go.
Pray, meditate and live for the glory of God.
Forgive, let go and enjoy your future, living in the kingdom of God.
In scripture, we are told in the book of Isaiah…
“…God will give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…” Isaiah 61:3
Now, what I love about this Bible verse is that God is telling us that when we can let go of the past. When we can let go and let God handle what no longer serves us. God will give us our heart’s desire.
But you absolutely must be willing to let go.
If you dwell on the disappointments in life. When you refuse to forgive and choose to hold a grudge. Then you will miss out on the blessings that God has in store for you.
And you will miss out on what God has in store for you because you are too busy focusing on what you don’t want.
Yes, I understand that sometimes it takes an extraordinary leap of faith to forgive the person who did you wrong. Yet, truth be told, holding on to a grudge and being angry isn’t hurting them it’s only hurting you.
Starting now, do yourself a favor…
Let go and let God be a blessing in your life.
Lovingly release the pain and disappointment you’ve been holding onto. Stop blaming people for your unhappiness and count in all joy the blessings of God.
In the end, put God first.
Begin to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and develop a grateful heart.
More importantly, when you spend time in prayer, listen and act upon the guidance that you receive.
Trust that God always has your best interest at heart even if things don’t turn out the way you might have expected.
