Most of us have heard people use the phrase “let go and let God.” This is fine and wonderful if you can just do it. More importantly, it works even better if we can acknowledge that we are holding on to something or someone that keeps that distance between God and us. Why do we oftentimes allow that distance when God is clearly trying to close the gap? There are times when we clearly see the “writing on the wall” or feel such a strong conviction as we continue along a certain path; yet we wash the writing off the wall or continue walking along the darkening path knowing the destruction that lies ahead.
When you have been given orders and specific instructions in the army of God, as a good soldier, you are to obey the orders and complete the mission. We frequently choose to go AWOL (absent without leave) or become rogue just to do our “own thang”. I want you to consider the mission you have been given as the soldier in God’s army. He wants you to “Let Go and Let Him” direct your path, bring your vision to life, provide the resources you need, connections you need, strength you need, peace you need and joy you need to do it.
