Letting Go

Letting Go

Genesis 12:1The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to a land I will show you.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – We always want God to show us what His will is and cannot understand when he “fails” to do so. Sometimes it is because we still want to hang onto what we have; not realizing that we cannot take hold of what He wants to bless us with if our hands are already full. He will show us, if we are willing to let go.

My Advice – Receiving God’s blessings will sometimes mean letting go of something we are clinging to. It may not be as dramatic as Abram’s story, but will most likely fall into one of two categories. The blessings He wants to give us are greater than what we have or He cannot bless us because what we are hanging onto is not good to begin with. Be willing to let go.
