5 Ways to Let Go and Let God!

1. Stop Trying to figure it out

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” – Proverbs 3:5-6

This is one of the most popular and most quoted book in the Bible, however, when we find ourselves going through trying times (I will speak for myself), I tend to forget all about this scripture. The Lord tells us clearly not to lean on (stand on) our own understanding. We are to let go and let God handle it.

Why? Because “…Our thoughts are not God’s thoughts, Nor are our ways His ways.”  – Isaiah 55:8

God knows exactly what He is doing and as Christians we should be able to trust Him no matter how grim the situation may look. Remember Lazarus was dead for days but he still arose at the voice of God. Your situation can do the same thing when you let go and let God .

 

2. Cast it to God

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” – 1 Peter 5:7 

I have a bad habit of praying and then asking myself “what should I do”. When you are so used to being in control it’s hard to let something go. The word cast means to simply “release”. When you cast your cares, you are releasing it from your hands (your ability and strength) to God’s hands with omnipotent power.

When you understand how much God loves and cares for you, then you will have no problem letting it go because you know it’s in more than capable hands.

 

3. After you pray, Praise!

“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” – Matthew 21:22

Most times we don’t receive what we ask for because we don’t simply believe God. The key to letting go of things we cannot control is having the faith in God that once we pray to Him we literally give it to Him. It is out of your hand (control) and in the God’s hands (control). Let go and let God do the rest.

An automatic burden should be lifted from you once you let go and a praise to God should arise in your spirit because you know He is in control.

4. Know that God is in control

 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28

After you cast your cares, pray and praise God, you can rest assured that He is now working everything out for your good! You may never understand what or why something has happened to you, but you can rest assured that in some way, shape, or form God is turning it around in your favour.

God loves and cares about you with an everlasting love. Any father who loves their child with an everlasting love, will always have their best interest at heart. When your heart is placed in the hands of God, He doesn’t abuse it, He protects it. Once you let go and let God , He will turn it around for our good.

5. God’s got you covered

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.“- Psalms 84:11 

We as Christians are one of the most blessed people on this planet. We pray to a God who is also our Heavenly Father. He loves us so much that he won’t withhold any good thing from us. Even if this doesn’t seem to be the case at the moment, we should let go and let God work it out.

Look back for a moment at that old boyfriend or crush that you thought was everything but treated you badly. Aren’t you glad God took you out of that situation looking back years later?

Even though we may hurt for a moment, trust that God sees past your moment and sees your lifetime. He knows what’s best for you. Just let go and let God handle it!
