God’s plan for your life far exceeds the circumstances of letting go of something today.
The problem with thinking we know what we want, is that we miss out on the greater thing that God has for us. The thing we think we need and can’t let go of is keeping us from a greater plan and purpose. God has something for each of us that is far better than we could imagine. Submitting to God always leads to the best plan for our lives. Our little thinking and desires can never match to what God wants for our lives.
When we pursue God’s plans, He leads us to the perfect path. The Bible says man makes plans and then God laughs. Just kidding! Man makes plans and God directs his steps. And in Psalm 37:23 it says “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.” When we let go and let God direct us, He will delight in our lives. I don’t know about you, but that’s my goal. I want God to delight in the things I do and say. I want Him to direct my paths. And I want to give up the things I think I want and to pursue the things I know God has for me!
So what in your life are you holding on to? What is prohibiting God to give you the better thing? What steps can you take to let go and let God direct your ways? He will show you want He wants you to let go of. And most times we know what it is, but we just don’t want to do it. Allow Him to direct your steps, allow Him to show you the way to go and what to do. He is faithful to show you! He wants the best plan for your life, and is waiting for you to take the steps towards it!
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32:8
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3
