Learning How To Let Go and Let God

The bible teaches us to “cast all your cares upon me”….

Realistically, how many of us actually do this “without” trying to fix the situation ourselves? I would estimate a very low percentage. Learning to “let go” and “let God” is not as easy as it sounds, however, the bible reassures us to …”Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.” Ps 55:22 and “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

let-go-let-GODFor example let’s consider Job’s trials. Job said: “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.” Job 13:15 KJV

The taunting, “Worry Syndrome”

I pose the question, if you’re in constant turmoil and worrying, why do you pray? Is it just something you do because it’s tradition? Or, do you truly seek God for peace and understanding? Forming a “real” relationship with God provides a sense of security, revelation knowledge and mostly, “a peace that surpasseth all understanding.”

The bible says to delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Ps 37:4) What we should understand mostly from this passage is the fact that there is a process of learning just how to “delight yourself in God.”

Are you willing to go through the process? If so, here are a few suggestions to get you started on your blessed journey: Pray and sincerely ask the Holy Spirit to order your footsteps as you prepare to read God’s words.

  1. Clear your mind of all self-thoughts of how you “think” it should be. (As Paul stated to the Corinthians in 1 Corin 14:36; “Do you think that the knowledge of God’s word begins and ends with you Corinthians? Well, you are mistaken!”)
  2. Be prepared to push your way through negative temptations of things like, “I don’t understand what I’m reading” or “this doesn’t make any sense” or “I don’t have time to read” or “every time I try to read the bible, I get sleepy” (well, perhaps you do but, understand that the enemy doesn’t want you to read it, speak boldly and declare the good works of the Lord that you have already conquered the enemy and you’re on your way to a victorious life in Jesus Christ!) and continue to read. (Ref: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” Matt 26:41)
  3. Make it a point to read at least 3 scriptures per day. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to place these readings in your spirit so that when it’s time for you to use them, He will bring them back to remembrance.
  4. Don’t “try” so hard. God knows your heart. A sincere heart towards Him will produce results.
  5. STOP stressing. When you find yourself going to a place of stress, having tantrums or rebellious actions – STOP and ask yourself, “what do I look like to God right now?” Did you know that God knows what our needs are long before we do? Let go and let Him do what He promises all throughout His message. BUT, if you feel you must continue through a tantrum, afterwards, repent (ask for forgiveness), shake the dust and renew your mind to the will of God. Note: “Discouragement, depression, and self-pity are the result of problems and adversity for some. For others, problems are a challenge and help bring about faith, trust and victory.” 1
  6. Be willing to go through your storm! Pick up your cross and humbly carry it to its destination! God is able to use us for His glory when we’re willing to pursue the purpose He intended for us long ago.
  7. Place yourself in environments and with people that are positive and encouraging.
  8. Instead of the “me, oh my” syndrome, with a sincere heart, pray for others
  9. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to your own understanding.”

Faith is the substance of things hoped for...Did you know that doubt and faith cannot exist in the same body? For example, have you ever found yourself in a conversation saying, “I know I should be stronger than this, oh yes I have faith BUT, I’m human too, and sometimes it just gets too hard.”? The mind can sometimes be our worst weapon against self; however, the fact that we can dismiss negativity by adding positives allows us to be over comers! It is unwise (and impossible) to seek the Lord through “worldly” eyes. God is a spirit and the bible informs that we must seek Him in spirit and in truth.

Larry Burkett once said, “as Christians we are admonished to be over comers, all you need to do is ask the Lord to help you.” Scripture reference: 1 John 5:5; “Who is the one that overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”

What a message of reassurance, Amen?

The bible is filled with such reassurance that all we have to do is trust God, know the word for yourself and to “let go and let God” do what He purposed for your life long ago.

Learn To Have True Discernment

True discernment is truly belonging to God with your whole heart and becoming as familiar as possible with his character.  It is also listening carefully to what others say, they way they say it, voice reflections, and also what’s not said but implied.  This does not mean that we can put words in other people’s mouths, or just come to our conclusion about what was said.  I am talking about really listening to people and letting the Holy Spirit talk back to you and tell you what you need to know.  You may not always get the whole picture about a person, but if you really listen to the Holy Spirit, he can show you enough about that person to tell you what He really wants you to know – either good or bad.

     Sometimes when someone is speaking that we don’t respect or like, we tend to just tune out and not pay attention. We don’t think that they would have anything to say that we should hear.  Sometimes that’s the way the Holy Spirit chooses to let you know things about people and where they stand and what’s really in their heart.  If you really listen, most people can speak volumes without even knowing it.  This can be especially helpful in spiritual warfare in discerning who to trust and who not to trust with things.

     In Exodus 32:28-29, Pharaoh only let the people go so he would stop having to put up with the plagues that were coming on him and his people because of the Israelites.  He didn’t do it for the right reason.

     DISCERNMENT IS UNDERSTANDING A PERSON’S MOTIVES FOR DOING EVEN THE RIGHT THING.  IF THEIR MOTIVE IS WRONG, SATAN CAN STILL WIN SOME BATTLES IN THAT PERSON’S LIFE EVEN IF THEY ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING.  REMEMBER THAT GOD LOOKS AT THE HEART, NOT THEIR OUTWARD APPEARANCE.

     In Job 12:11 Job says “Doth not the ear try words?”  It is the task of the ear to discriminate between wise and unwise words.

     Job 34:3 says “The ear trieth words as the mouth tasteth meat”.  Just as our palate decides if we like certain foods, we should also listen with care to things that are said to decide if they are wise or unwise and if we will let them change us or if we discard them.

     Psalm 119:125 – “I am your servant, give me understanding (discernment and comprehension) that I may know (discern and be familiar with the character of) your testimonies.  (Amp. Bible)  The more we are familiar with God’s character, the more discernment and wisdom we can have.

     Proverbs 2:1-6 says to cry after knowledge and lift up your voice for understanding.  Seek after it as silver and search for it like hidden treasure.  Then you shall understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.  The Lord gives wisdom and out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.  A man of true understanding keeps silent and does not belittle and despise people.

     True discernment does not let others tell you what is right or wrong just because they have their own opinion of it that is not necessarily based on the Word of God.  True discernment always looks to the Holy Spirit for guidance and not just what another person says.  We can’t truly discern about a person or thing without the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Without that, it just becomes how we feel in the flesh about a certain thing or person. 

     Proverbs 3:5-7 says “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;  and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.  Be not wise in thine own eyes; fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

     If we do these things, God will give us wisdom and discernment in any situation, no matter how difficult!  But always remember that wisdom and discernment should be tempered with love and mercy.  God gives us much more of both of these than we could ever deserve.  So we should keep that in mind when having discernment about others. 

It’s easy to have discernment about a person or particular thing and make a judgment right then.  The thing is that you never know where that person may be in their walk with God, and you don’t know what God plans to do in their life.  They may not be where they need to be, but God may want to use you somehow in their life.  If you only go by the discernment you have, then you are likely to deem them as unworthy and write them off.  God takes each one of us exactly where we are and starts to work in our lives from there.  He slowly brings us along to where He wants us to be.  He treats us with much love, grace, and mercy even though none of us could ever do anything to deserve it. 

Pray that God will give you His love and compassion toward others.  Ask Him to help you to look at others the way that He looks at them.  If you can do this, you can always be a vessel that God can use to do the work that He wants to do in the lives of others – whatever that may be.
