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
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
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.
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
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.
