How to let go and let God

How can we unlock ourselves, let go and let God take control. Here are some suggestions I have found.

+ Start each day by giving it to God – Do not take yesterday’s mistakes into the clean slate of today. Mentally shave off every single worry, doubt, fear, mistake, and anxiety from your mind each morning.

+ Give it to God by starting each day with prayer – Speak to God. Yes, the day is full of responsibilities, but first talk to God. Acknowledge Him. Tell Him that you love Him. Tell Him that you are thankful for Jesus’ sacrifice for your life. Invite God’s Spirit to guide you that day. Before you talk to anyone, talk to God. He will set your day on the right path.

+ Give it to God by starting each day with Scripture – Open your Bible and read where you left off from the previous day. The Bible is living and active and like cool water for your thirsty soul.

+ Give it to God by surrounding yourself with encouragement – You will never make it alone. You need to have people who speak truth into your life. Always be on the lookout for people and situations that you can add as spiritual buffers in your life.

+ Give it to God by renewing your mind continually – The world will constantly try to add worries to your day so it is important that you maintain your spiritual health! Continually surrender those worries to God. Trust and believe that God is for you. He loves you and wants only the best for you. When you let go, you can fully rest in His strength. You don’t have to worry. The Creator of the World is on your side.

2 Corinthians 4:16 challenges is by saying, “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.”

Lord, I kneel before You in humble submission and pray that in Your mercy and kindness You would help me to simply let go of all the fears and worries, problems and doubts, guilt and disappointments that seem to be filling my heart and mind so often, during the course of a day. Amen
