Do you feel as if you are in a tug of war? God has told you to do “something”, but you will have to move from the comfortable to the unknown. So, instead of releasing the rope, you are pulling to stay where you are. Can I encourage you, today? Let it go! The pulling you are doing, to stay comfortable, is blocking you from God’s plan. You are unnecessarily pulling against your own next level! Let it go!
Remember the young rich ruler? After Jesus told him he would need to give up all he had for eternal life, what happened? He did not let go, he sadly went away, and decided worldly possessions were better than eternal life with Jesus. Do not be like the young rich ruler! Let it go!
At the end of tug of war, those that normally let go, end up falling on the other side. I do not know about you, but I rather fall on Jesus side, where I know he will pick me up and place me on solid ground.
Stop pulling to stay where God obviously wants you to leave. Be obedient and let the rope go!
Prayer: Lord God, open our hearts to obedience. Strengthen us to let go of what is holding us back from a new level in you. Forgive us for pulling unnecessarily against the plan you have for us. Today, we are letting the rope go. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Scripture: And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake will receive many times as much and will inherit eternal life. Matthew 19: 29 (AMP).
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
