Let Go And Let God

The virgin Mary is the perfect example of someone who let go and let God. When an angel told Mary that she would give birth to baby Jesus, the Son of God, she responded, “Be it unto me according to thy word.” (Luke 1:38) Without hesitation, Mary submitted to God’s Will with her whole heart. (Our Daily Bread, December 24, 2005) Mary let go and let God.

Even Jesus Christ Himself let go and let God in the garden of Gethsemane. In the midst of great anguish, Jesus prayed, “Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.” As my good friend Dr. J.G. McCann recently put it on the Praise The Lord show on TBN, “Jesus prayed all night long, asking the Lord for direction that He might make the right selection.” (Matthew 26:36-44)

Your life will never know joy, victory or fulfillment until you make God’s Will your top priority! When God speaks, you need to listen and obey.

The best place to be is inside the Will of God!

Have Thine Own Way, Lord!

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay;
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.

Adelaide A. Pollard
Isaiah 64:8

Let go and let God. Do whatever He tells you to do. (Genesis 22:1-14; John 2:1-5)

When the servants at the wedding in Cana did what Jesus told them to do, Jesus turned water into wine. In other words, Jesus turned a negative situation (no wine) into a positive situation (plenty of wine!). Your “water” may be a health problem. Your “water” may be a family problem. Your “water” may be a marital problem. Your “water” may be a financial problem. Whatever your “water” may be, Jesus has the power to turn your negative situation into a postitive situation. (excerpt from my “Jesus Still Makes House Calls” sermon -John 2:1-11)

Let go and let God!

“. . .When Jesus takes us to a place we would rather not go, it is really a better place.” M. Craig Barnes, When God Interrupts, 1996.

Let go and let God!

“. . .Unless we learn dependence we will never experience grace.” Philip Yancey, Where Is God When It Hurts?, 1990

The great Paul Tournier once said, “What I have to do is put my signature at the foot of a blank page on which I will accept whatever God wishes to write. I cannot predict what He will put on this blank contract as my life proceeds – but I give my signature today.”

Whatever trust is, whatever faith is, whatever commitment is, whatever surrender is, it is giving God our signature at the bottom of a blank page and letting Him do all the writing. And whatever God writes, although hard to read and accept sometimes, it is alright because He know what’s best and He knows the way!

Nothing is too hard for God. The God we serve is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20

Let go and let God.

God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1

Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
