Letting Go is Hard

Just imagine God telling you to let go of someone you hold so dear to your heart.

Imagine Him telling you to let go of that fine duplex of yours for a face to face apartment.

Imagine Him asking you to let go of the last money on you while you even have tonnes of debt to pay.

Imagine Him telling you to LET GO of something of much importance to you.

Think about it.
Just imagine it.

In all sincerity, LETTING GO is hard but it is always the best especially when God is the one telling you to let go.

I’ve come to understand that LETTING GO to LET GOD have His way is one of the most rewarding things I can ever do.

I imagine the kind of faith and grace father Abraham had when God told HIM to let go of Isaac, despite having him at a very old age.

A whole Isaac, the child of promise.

It is certain that Abraham must have loved Isaac dearly but Abraham was willing to let GO of his Isaac. And what was the end of it all?

God had His way and glorified Himself.

The question is ARE YOU WILLING TO LET GO of your Isaac so as to LET GOD have His way?

So far in 2020, God has been dealing with me on letting go of so many things. Things I’d look at or think about and tears will gather in my eyes within seconds.

However, I didn’t cry because I do not want to LET GO but because LETTING GO was hard and I just needed God to give me faith that is far beyond that of Father Abraham.

I just needed to trust God and follow His lead. He knows better than I do.

Is God telling you to let GO of something but seems hard?

Let me tell you few things to do that has been helping me:

1) Have a settled mind that God has a better reason for asking you to LET GO.

Your human reasoning will want to debate that but you just have to LET GO.

2) Cry to God and tell him it’s hard. Tell Him to embrace you with His warm hug. Tell him to let you see beyond the present and see the reasons why you need to LET GO.

3) Get busy. I mean instead of sitting and brooding over the thoughts of those things you need to let go, channel yourself into doing something worthwhile.

Listen to messages that will build your faith at that moment.
Read books.
Find a company of spiritual and positive people that can keep you alive at that moment you want to feel down.

Trust me, at the end of it, you’ll be glad to LET GO.

Letting Go is Hard but it’s always worth it.
