In many churches today, we often will hear the term “Let go and let God”.
While this sounds great to our ears, letting go of our burdens and let God do everything for us, is this biblically correct?
When we pray to the Lord, we should not think that we can “let go and let God.”
Rather, we should “let go and get going.”
To do this, we need to let go of the burdens that we are carrying by admitting our weaknesses and trust in God's promises. And to get going means we need to do all that we can on our part to change our circumstances - and then trust God with the rest.
Instead of praying that God takes away our trials, we can pray that God helps us to get through the tough times because ultimately, as it says in Romans 5:3-4, ‘trials produce character.’
This means God won’t take away every hard circumstance we come across in life, but He certainly will always help us through them. Amen!
“For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
Thank Him for the blessing it is for us to be equipped so that we can do His will.
“Equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to Whom be glory forever and ever. Amen”
