Situations beyond our control can be our worst nightmare. We are people who find security in having the money to pay the bills and a little fun time. We find peace in having the spouse who comes straight home from work everyday and doesn’t like hanging out in the clubs. But when you find yourself dealing with things that you cannot fix or control, it almost makes you crazy! Fear starts to overtake you and doubt sets in. Even frustration takes over because nothing you can do will change the situation.
So how do we handle the situations that are out of our control? WE DON’T! That is the answer. If there is nothing you can do about it, then don’t do anything. Just let it go. The moment you release that problem into the atmosphere, God will reach out and grab it and do exactly what needs to be done. He is the one who can heal the broken heart. He is the one who can deliver the drug addicted teen. He is the one who can control what is beyond your reach. Learn to let go of the things that are out of your control because the more you try to fix it, the more stressed out you become and you will find yourself disappointed every time. Some people may think that letting go is like giving up, but it’s not as long as you give it up to God. It is simply coming to terms with the facts and then believing God’s truth. The fact is, the problem is far greater than you can handle, but the truth is God can do anything, but fail. So, the next time you find yourself holding on to a dead relationship, anger, unforgiveness, doubt, and fear remember to just let it go. The sooner you let it go, the sooner God will pick it up because “Letting Go Doesn’t Mean Giving Up!”
