Daily Devotional | Let Go And Let God

Matthew 11:28 KJV
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
 
 
Let’s establish a few facts before we take off on our journey of faith; which is essentially the meaning of letting go and letting God.  The main thing we need to keep in our minds is that God is GOD! He took nothing and made the universe (Gen 1). He is GOD! He created humans out of the dust of the earth (Gen 2:7). He is GOD! He has always been God and He always will be God. He NEVER changes (Mal 3:6, Jms 1:17).
 
During the most critical point in the life of Jesus, when the minds and hearts of His disciples seemed totally depleted of courage and faith, each need was filled. As the disciples beheld the amazing example of Jesus’s quiet surrender to the Father, they learned of the miracle working power of letting go and letting God. Their eyes and minds and hearts were opened anew to the message of abundant life, eternal life and love for all humanity.
 
God always provides knowledge, guidance, understanding, faith, healing, support or whatever else is needed in your life. Whatever your life experience appears to be, you have, at this moment, an opportunity to let go personal striving and let God move in you and through you to fill every need.
 
God’s love and goodness will always fill every need in your circumstances, every hunger of your heart, every longing of your soul for peace and assurance, every good desire for the expression of eternal life and well-being.
 
Even though it may seem during the challenges of life that you are separated from that which has been your greatest avenue of comfort, security or supply, remember: God always fills your need. No matter how great the gulf seems between you and the solution to your deepest desire, you can trust God. Tell yourself again and again: I let go.
 
God never leaves a void. He will never leave you or forsake you, His own creation. God’s presence of love and wisdom is ever nurturing your soul in its gradual unfoldment of spiritual maturity. God’s power is ever at work within every circumstance. As you let go and trust God, everything is transformed- yes, everything- into a blessing. God continuously makes dark places light, rough places smooth, crooked places straight and empty places full. Full of His loving kindness and abundance of joy.
 
It is God that is working in our life and it is God who has the reins to our well being. We must turn to Him, trust Him, thank Him, and testify of what He is doing in our life. In conclusion let me encourage each of you dear readers to turn to God in your trials and you will know that God’s grace is sufficient for any trial or trouble that you are going through or are going to go through. God is ready to do what you cannot do by yourself. Amen.
 
Scripture of the day: Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. ~ Psalm 55:22 NIV

    Today’s devotional message is very necessary as it pertains to circumstances that emerged. It is a source of strength, encouragement, reinforcement and alleviation of inner pain. The end result of today’s devotional is a renewal and fortification of my determination to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God which is in Christ Jesus. The scricpture of the day is indeed spiritual medicine and spiritual food for thought that will sustain me as it pertains to the spiritual trauma I recently experienced. God bless you!.

    Great word of God. I am ministered so I repeat after you… “I let go”. Truly after you’ve done all you can, you just stand and wait for the LORD. I will continue to cast all my burden unto my Lord knowing that He alone will sustain me during all trials, tribulations and joy in my life.

    Thank you for I am truly ministered.
