We may become apprehensive and/or 


concerned when things do not go as planned.


 Rather than surrendering all to God, our natural 


impulse is to want to control every element of 


our lives.


Whatever happens, God is always in control.


We can't have our hands on the wheel while also


 giving God control. If we would just let go, God


 is willing and able to take us exactly where we


 need to go.

Life will sometimes force us to admit our 


powerlessness to save ourselves. God knows


 exactly what we need and, what is best for us,


 and what is best for our souls.



When we forsake God's Way, Will, and Time 


in order to follow our own way, will, and 


timing... the consequences can be unpleasant 


and, in some cases, devastating.



We have a responsibility to find and accomplish


 God's Way, Will, and Timing for our lives, not


 just to God, but also to ourselves. Only by 


making this our top priority will we find true joy, 


the advancement we seek, and the fulfillment


 of an ultimately worthwhile existence on Earth.



God will far exceed our highest expectations. Our 


duty is to let God's Will, God's Divine process 


emerge by sacrificing our will, path, time, and 


anticipated outcomes.



No matter how hard we try to manage our lives, 


we should strive towards God's Will.

May God manifest His Divine Way, Will, and


 Timing in our lives when we let go of our 


self-imposed way, will, and timing.

Letting go requires letting go of the ego, with


 its desire for power, limited comprehension, 


preconceived ideas, illusions, and mindsets.

We've all been in situations where we felt powerless,


 burdened, and unable to depend on others, unable to fix,


 improve or change our circumstances. We've all been


there when there was nowhere else to look, but up.

Self-sufficiency eventually leads to ruin.



"What he believes in is flimsy; what he clings


 to is a spider web," Bildad says in Job 8:12-15


 of the consequences of people who reject God.


He leans on the web, but it gives way; 


he screams at it, but it doesn't hold." " "



As a result, Scripture shows that relying on our 


own power rather than God's is as foolish as 


relying on a spider web for support. The truth


 is that we lack the ability to steer our own lives.



We require the help of the One Who created, knows, 


loves, cares for, and blesses us. We require the


involvement of the One who has authority over life 


and death, the One who hears our prayers, sees our


 tears, leads us through the valley of the shadow of


 death, blesses us with strength and restores our souls... 


so that we might live our lives to the fullest.

Let us give all our of troubles 


and concerns to God, for God 


truly cares about us.

There is nothing too difficult 

for God.

May we give God all of our concerns and difficulties. 


God has the ability to create immeasurably more


 than we can imagine or desire. God's Way, Will,


 and Timing far transcends anything we could ever 


expect or fathom.

Knowing to Whom we belong


 is one of life's most significant 


facts.

The truth is, we have very little control over 


our lives. Control is merely an illusion.


We never had it... and we never will.

We must recognize that the duties we are to 


carry out are carried out by the power of God,


 not by our own meager abilities and attempts.

In other words, it is a senseless tragedy when


 our quest for power and understanding leads 


us away from God.


Consider this: God is our most profound Source


 of support, knowledge, comfort, and strength. 


God is far greater than anything that moves and 


drives us in this world!

Gratitude for the present moment protects


 us from looking back in time, agonizing about


 what has passed, or fretting about what is to come.


Let it go... allow God to take over.

Let us be willing to let go and follow God's


 guidance as we seek God's assistance... 


hearing with our inner ears, seeing with our 


inner eyes, understanding with our innermost 


being, and putting the weary mind to rest.

God desires us to interact, go, be and do, 


but we must remain humble and aware of


 our reliance on God at all times.

God never makes promises that He cannot keep. 


God will never make a promise He cannot honor.

God has meticulously designed our lives. 


To live meaningful lives, we must relinquish


 complete authority to God.
