When it comes to “letting go” of our circumstances, we understand it to mean, we leave it ALL to God. But then, we encounter a Scriptural verse like Matthew 7:7, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” So, the question we may find ourselves asking is, “Do we do nothing and let God do it all or do we intervene and “help” God?”
As a supervisor, I used to always tell my employees, never be afraid to ask for anything. What is the worst thing I could say? “No.” I believe this frame of mind can be applicable to our Heavenly Father. God welcomes us to “ask, seek, and knock,” so as long as we understand that He will provide according to His will. When we do not receive what we asked for, perhaps God had something better waiting for us. This has certainly been the case for me during numerous points of my life. But it is only after God’s will has been revealed, was I able to truly appreciate the change of events.
If you, or someone you love, is struggling with “letting go,” when releasing it to God, take a few moments to tell Him what you really want and that you are open to accept His will. You will find peace in sharing your desires regarding your circumstances. But you will also be able to trust God as you wait, that He will bless you more than you could have possibly imagined.
