Let Go And Let God–That Means Taking Your Hands Off

Let go and let GodTrusting God means that you have to take your hands off how you want your prayers answered. You have to let go of your assumptions and preconceived ideas of what should happen. You may not be ready to have those prayers answered right now. You may need a lot of growing up first. You have to allow God the freedom to do what He knows best.

A lot of people lose their faith because they don’t see what they expect to see. They think in people terms, not God terms. He knows so much more than we do. When the opposite of what we want happens, it’s not because God is mad at us. It’s probably because He’s taking a different route than we expected.

Trust Him. He sees the end and how to get you there. If you’re frustrated with what is or isn’t happening, talk to Him about it. You’re allowed to do that! In fact, it’s encouraged. Pour out your heart to Him and let Him do what He needs to do in you. Stop expecting exact steps to take place. Maybe they will, but maybe He has a better way. Always expect the best from God, even in the middle of something messy. Keep your faith strong and He’ll move heaven and earth for you. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. (Jhn 14:14)
