Letting go of those things in which we love is never easy, but sometimes there is great power therein, see, without the Word and Spirit of God being saturated within, our hearts are most deceptive and will lead us into all sorts of sin.
Arrogance, selfishness and pride just to name a few, it takes the Word and Spirit of God to show us, about us, that which is ugly, that which is true.
So many of us miss out on God’s best for fear of giving up on our own dreams, our own will, our own way, so we move full speed ahead not seeking at all God’s face, nor listening at all to what He is trying to say, and it’s “only” when we find ourselves in that dark place that we choose to pray, when God wants continual, perpetual fellowship with His children in every situation, every circumstance, every hour, every minute, every second of each and every day.
Total surrender, total submission, letting go of our own desires, letting go of our own selfish ambition.
Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a prosperous plan for each of us, yet, we refuse to believe, we refuse to trust, when, to walk in God’s will, faith and trust is a must.
I’m not saying that to walk in God’s will is to walk trial and tribulation free, but through the storms we have an inner joy and peace, and spiritual eyes to clearly see.
We see that at the end of the tunnel there is a light, we see that our faith muscles are getting bigger and stronger with every fight, we see that despite all the opposition it’s still God’s will that true, God’s will that’s right.
We also see that it’s complete brokenness that propels God to show, we see that faithfulness to God’s will is what gives us that righteous glow, and of our own selves, we see,
THE POWER IN LETTING GO!!!
