Let Go and Let God

There are times in our lives when we try to manage things ourselves. We want to mentally figure everything out in an orderly fashion to make it all look organized. It is like we put God on the shelf and tell Him to rest because we have it under control.

Have you ever been in that situation where you felt you had everything under control, and yet you feel a little tug in your spirit? You never think that God is trying to tell you something? Well, I found myself in that situation when I had to take care of some business in Minneapolis, MN.

I was reluctant to tackle the Minneapolis task because it had been extremely laborious for over a year. Despite my organizing and trying to put things in order I ignored that small tug within trying to tell me something. But did I listen? NO, I did not. Finally, I felt the Holy Spirit minister to me loud and clear saying, “Stop and let go. Rest. Breath in MY PEACE.” So, I took my mental hands off the project and said, “It’s in Your hand. Whatever happens I know You will do it by whatever means possible.” I inwardly felt like - in the cowboy movies I used to watch - the sheriff said, “Drop your gun and hands up!” Well, the gun that I dropped represented the load I carried in my mind and body. That was a true sign of surrendering.

When I surrendered my load and breathed deeply, I felt like fresh air was surging through my nostrils. I felt instantly lighter than I had for over a year. When I arrived in Minneapolis, God miraculously put all things together and directed me to all the right people. When it was time to leave and come home, I inwardly felt like I was flying on a cloud already.

How many times does the Lord tell us to drop our baggage and issues so He can take care of our issues in His own way? There are times we get it right and there are times we miss it, but because He loves us beyond anything we could imagine He keeps doing great things for us.

If, in all our ways and all we do, we acknowledge, submit, and seek Him, our paths will be better than we could ever imagine. It’s the human side of us that believes God for some things but not everything. We are ever in a learning and growing process.

Proverbs 3:6 in three translations gives us the full understanding:
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (King James Version)
“In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (New International Version)
 “Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” (New Living Translation)
