How to let go and let God?

  1. This post made me think. No, I have not been giving time to God each day. I mean I pray, sometimes it's a very short prayer to help me and my family, but not enough probably. I don't don't study his word every day. I forget to say Grace. I do thank God when things work out.

    So if I'm going to give it to God, I need to do my part. Thank you for reminding me. I've been here one day and already I have been reminded of something very important. Bless you for this.

  2. It's good to have you here as well. Welcome to the forum.
    God is good......Always.
    May he continue to bless us all. :)
  3. after reading this it really got me to thinking about my life and the problems i am currently having. it made me realize that while i do the things i need to do such as filling out applications and droping off resumes i can not actually make the people call me back and i need to just let it go and let God handle that part for me. its just so amazing that i can be away from here for so long and when i come back i find the exact thing i need to see thank you all so much for the great advice.
  4. Ginger I agree, by spending more time with Him allows our hearts to open up more to be able to receive what he is saying.

    To be honest, I'm literally going through that stage now. Not completely there, but I'm getting better and i'm able to understanding the difference between him and the devil.
  5. I believe it is all part of being conformed to the image of Christ. We Christians desire to live for Christ and be like Him, but, life shows we cannot.
    I do not believe this is something that can be explained but experienced.
    As we run the race and become tired from trying so hard we eventually get worn down, we fall, get back up and continue. Some days we stop and look back and say, wow, as we reflect on our lives we see He was always there along side us, and we still go on. Eventually, praise God, we realize we, in our strength, cannot live the Christian life. This is when we give it to Jesus, we let go because we realize we cannot do it, we let Christ because He is the only one who can.

    Understand my point?

    God Bless.
  6. Walking in my own strength I could never do this but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
    My inner man (spirit) is perfect and made in the image of God, it is righteous and holy. My mind must be renewed daily according to the Word of God and this must be done step by step, area by area.
    If we walk in the Spirit we will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh but indeed be reflections of our Lord and King Jesus Christ.
    Dive deep into the Word of God my friend with the Holy Spirit as your Guide and He will reveal His power in and through you.
  7. Amen!
  8. First, Communicate with God:

    • To Him - Via prayer
    • From Him - Via His Word
    In prayer, remember the most recited but least understood line:

    THY WILL BE DONE (Matthew 6:10).

    When you yeild to God's will, you will rest (let go of your will) knowing that God's will will not only prevail, it will be in your best interest.

    Good Day and God Bless
  9. The best way to let go and let God is to focus on what you can do, and have confidence that God is there doing what He thinks is best (and I assume that He does know what is best ;) ). God gave us a free will for a reason: to use it. The more we learn to choose, the easier it is to "let God."
