The Gift Of Surrendering Or Letting Go!

Surrendering: The Gift of Letting Go!

While it’s often a struggle to put everything on the (letting go) altar, one thing I’ve learned is that you don’t have to understand how God will accomplish His plans. All He asks is that you surrender your will to His and trust that He will show you the way forward (Prov. 3:5-6). Abraham’s willingness to give up what was most precious to him came from his unyielding faith in the Lord’s trustworthiness.

However, if you tell God no because He won’t explain why He wants us to do something, we are actually hindering His blessing. But when we say yes to Him, heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward our obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit. But don’t mistake His way of rewarding as being like a parent who withholds a treat until the child does as he’s told. Rather, obeying the Lord naturally positions us to receive what He is already trying to give us and accomplish in our lives. So, when we fail to trust Him and refuse to do what He says, we are the ones choosing to close ourselves off from those good things.

What has God asked you to do? Have you only partially cooperated? Or have you, like Abraham, given up your need to understand and then obeyed completely?

If the Lord says to give more than you think you’re able to give, know that He will provide. Whether things are running smoothly or the bottom has dropped out, He is always trustworthy. You can count on almighty God to keep His everlasting Word.

    fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, great site!

    Some of the most popular include the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff, Demi
    Lovato from Camp Rock, Selena Gomez from Wizards of Waverly Place, and
    Jordin Sparks a contestant on American Idol and recording artist.
    And, ‘Tom Cruise’ did not disappoint his fans at all. The aforementioned Roman numeral tattoo
    was a bit problematic after she realized that VIIXCI without any gaps didn’t mean anything.
