Let Go and Let God

Kathi Pelton

(Day 6 of 40: The Yielding)

People have a hard time letting go of having control. We have been taught in life that letting go is to be “out of control” or it is to become passive. Yet the “letting go” with God is the yielding that allows transformation.

As His sons and daughters we understand that His ways and His wisdom are higher than the ways and wisdom of any man. As we surrender to the work of His Spirit we let go of all that holds us back from the fullness of unity (oneness) with Him. Surrender creates a yielding that says, “Not my will but your will be done.”

Let go of all that you’ve been trying to control. Give God full control; give Him both the good and the bad. It is by grace that your life was redeemed and it is by grace that your will be transformed. Your part is surrender.

As the words to the old song go,

All to Jesus I surrender,

All to Him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust Him,

In His presence daily live.

I surrender all,

I surrender all.

All to Thee, my blessed Savior,

I surrender all.

All to Jesus I surrender,

Humbly at His feet I bow,

Worldly pleasures all forsaken;

Take me, Jesus, take me now.

All to Jesus I surrender,

Make me, Savior, wholly Thine;

Let me feel Thy Holy Spirit,

Truly know that Thou art mine.

All to Jesus I surrender,

Lord, I give myself to Thee;

Fill me with Thy love and power,

Let Thy blessing fall on me.

All to Jesus I surrender,

Now I feel the sacred flame.

Oh, the joy of full salvation!

Glory, glory to His name!

Today we surrender all. We belong to Him and all that we have we gladly surrender to Him. For in His hands everything thrives and is blessed. What we hold onto remains limited but what we surrender to Him becomes miraculous. Let go and let God!
