There’s this assuredness that comes when you can control a situation. As long as you are able to do something, you feel that you are in control. However, what happens when you do this in regards to your faith walk? Isn’t the sole purpose to sit back and Let God be God?
One of the hardest lessons to learn is surrender. Natural human instinct makes you believe that surrendering is a position of weakness. However, in God, it’s the greatest source of your strength. It is at this point of surrender that God can actually move in your life. When you let go, you let God have His way.
I encourage you to day to let go of whatever you have your hands on and give it to God. Trust that His way and His plans are indeed the best for you.
“Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 CSB
