When you let go and let God you are choosing to relinquish control of your circumstances and you start to trust that he is handling what needs to be handled, without YOUR interference. As a type-A personality, I get how hard it is to let go.
As people, we want to control every aspect of our lives. We want to try to make, do, and when we can’t we get all depressed and have anxiety about what we cannot handle. You can watch my video below on when I had to learn how to let go and let God during my difficult situation. When I had to learn this lesson the hard way. And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
That is why it is important to see that as humans we have only a piece of the puzzle meanwhile God has a bird’s eye view of the entire situation. This is why it is important to let God because he knows what he is doing, he knows more than us, and if we have faith then should feel free to let go KNOWING that God Has our back. So if you struggle in this area (like many of us do) I am going to give you some steps that you can do so that you can learn to let go and let God.
First, Let Go And Let God But Do Your Part
I have written this in my “can Christians manifest blog?” which you can click here to read. But whenever we are choosing to let go that means that we still have to do our part.
For example, if you are unemployed and you want a new job, how much sense would it make for you to let go and let God trusting him to find a great job for you if you do not even actually apply for a job. It is one thing to apply for jobs, trusting that God will lead you to the right one.
It is another thing to take no actual steps to apply for a job and you feel like God is just going to drop it in your lap. For the Bible teaches us (click here to get the amplified Bible I read from):
Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance]. Proverbs 16:3
What this means is that we do what we must, we do what God tells us to do, and once we have done our part we let go and let God take our efforts and multiply them. What we do not do is just sit and wait, doing nothing and expecting miracles to fall out of the sky.
Second, Remember To Pray
A part of our relationship with God is that we regularly talk to him and we regularly pray to him. Or at least we should. It can be very hard to let go if you do not trust. For the Bible teaches us:
When the righteous cry [for help], the Lord hears. And rescues them from all their distress and troubles. Psalm 34:17
Do not just sit around without including God in your plan. If you do not want to talk to God about your life or your problems then how can you expect him to fix whatever it is you are going through. As you pray ask him to give you peace, hope, and patience during your situation. And when you pray, trust the answer.
God’s answers to your prayers may be “not yet” or “you have to wait.” Meaning that you must let go trusting that he has heard your prayers and that he will come through at the right time. And that even if God’s time is not your time, let go of our worries of “WHEN” it will happen and just trust that God is making it happen. Also, watch my video below on how to trust God’s plan.
Third, Keep Calm And Have Patience
One of the fruits of the spirit (which I have a separate blog post on) is patience. If you really let God but you are always worrying about who, what, where, when, and why, then you are not really letting. Because your worry is a sign that you do not trust God, because if you did then would not worry. The Bible states:
The Lord will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.” Exodus 14:14
Last, Let Go And Let God But Have Faith
Even though you are choosing to let go of whatever you are trusting God for, that still means that you need to have faith. What you should not do is say something like “ I prayed for xyz, but I know that my prayer will not come true. But I still give it to you.” Do you see how that type of prayer is filled with self-doubt? For the Bible teaches us:
But as for you, be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work.” 2 Chronicles 15:7
Check out my video below where I talk about self-doubt. An excerpt from my single mom’s devotional “Fix It Jesus, For Single Moms Only.“
So not only do we let go and let God but we also have a positive attitude while doing so. Not sitting around looking all depressed saying faithless prayers. Once you let go, have an expectation that God is handling it and the answers to your prayers will come through any day now. If you know someone who needs to let go and let God then share this post with them.
