I have always had a hard time letting go of people. Not so much as when they die though that has been very tough, but much more so when they are still alive but no longer in my life temporarily or permanently for a good reason or a bad one whether according to God’s will or not and whether they walked away or I had to walk away. Letting go has just been plain old hard for me! Do you also have trouble letting people go?
Friend, WHEN IT IS GOD’S WILL AND GOD’S TIMING that we let someone go, He when we believe in and follow Jesus Christ as Lord will give us ALL THAT WE NEED to let go!
How do we know it’s His will and timing to let someone go? Prayer, seeking the Lord, reading the Bible and applying it to our lives, seeking counsel from His followers who are strongly grounded in the Bible if and as He leads us, waiting on Him, and hearing from Him.
When we are clear it’s His will to let someone go, we can rest assured we can ask from Him and receive from Him EVERYTHING He desires to give us in the way of help letting go. Examples? LOVE, STRENGTH, THE ABILITY TO GO FORWARD, HIS FORGIVENESS FOR ANYTHING WE HAVE DONE WRONG REGARDING THE OTHER PERSON OR PEOPLE, THE HUMILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO SEEK THAT PERSON’S FORGIVENESS FOR ANY WRONGDOING WE HAVE DONE, THE ABILITY TO FORGIVE THE OTHER PERSON OR PEOPLE IF FORGIVENESS IS NEEDED, HIS FELLOWSHIP, HEALING, MERCY, GRACE, WISDOM, COMFORT, COMPASSION, DIRECTION, PEACE, HOPE, JOY, AND HELP GOING FORWARD IN HIS WILL for our lives.
We can have all of this IN HIM, THROUGH HIM, and FOR HIM in order that we live to bring love, honor, praise, pleasure, and glory to God almighty!
The key is that we need to BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, LIVE IN OBEDIENCE TO JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, AND BE IN THE WILL AND TIMING OF THE LORD AS FAR AS LETTING GO IS CONCERNED. As a loved one told me long ago, the Lord will enable us to do what He calls us to do!
Friend, TURN FROM YOUR SINS. BELIEVE IN CHRIST AS LORD WHO DIED ON THE CROSS TO PAY OUR SIN PENALTY AND WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD. TURN TO GOD AND HIS WAYS. RECEIVE HIS FORGIVENESS AND THE PROMISE OF EVERLASTING LIFE WITH HIM. ASK FOR AND RECEIVE THE GIFT OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT. LIVE FOR THE LORD.
And if you are wondering if you need to let someone go and need help doing it, seek the Lord, read the Bible, seek godly counsel if and as He leads you, wait on the Lord, hear from the Lord, obey the Lord, trust Him to help you, and surrender yourself wholly to the Holy Spirit of God as He leads you forth in His will for your life!
Let the Lord lead you down the pathway He sets before you! When it’s the Lord’s will for you to let go and you obey, you won’t be walking alone. Follow the Lord and walk with Him as He walks with you and you walk down His pathway for you together! AMEN! Yield to the Lord and His plans for your life! Trust in Him! Rejoice in Him!
Father, help those of us needing help right now in letting go to let go! Please Lord if it’s your will to heal relationships in our lives, please heal them! For those of us with broken hearts, please heal our hearts! Help us to stay in or return to relationships if that’s your will. If it’s your will for us to walk away and not look back, help us. Whatever your will, dear Father, we need you! I humbly ask you to help us all, oh Lord, to do YOUR WILL in YOUR TIME for YOUR GLORY, AMEN!
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
