Let Go & Let God | 3 Ways to Surrender to God

Let Go & Let God | 3 Ways to Surrender to God 

If you're a Christian, you've more than likely heard of the popular saying, "Let go and let God". I can't tell you where the phrase originated from, but I do know there's a lot of truth behind it. 

Here's a few ways you can tell if you need to "Let go & let God" in your life: 

  • Does something in your life seem out of control? 
  • Do you have more problems than solutions? 
  • Do you feel like you're stuck or at a standstill in life?
  • Are you overwhelmed no matter how hard you try?

If you answered yes to any of these, it's time to surrender. 

Here are 3 ways to surrender to God that are supported by His Word:

1. Obey Him 

This seems like an easy one, but when was the last time you really obeyed God? The Bible tells us:

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 
(James 1:22)

Most of us deceive ourselves by acknowledging what God wants us to do, but not actually doing it. In order to fully surrender, we have to follow through and obey Him.

2. Be Still and Know

Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today...The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still."
(Exodus 14:13-14)

This verse reminds us that God delivers us, protects us, fights for us, and expects us to trust Him. Sometimes the best action we can take is no action at all. God's direction isn't always the easiest way but he does make it clear that sometimes we only need to be still and let him handle the rest. Surrender with stillness and watch your problems shift. 

3. Trust Him 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
(Proverbs 3:5-6) 

You think you have it all figured out, but let's face it- you don't. Trusting God with all of your heart and letting go of how you view a situation is one of the best ways to surrender. Submitting your thoughts, trials, and emotions to Him will not only lighten your burden, but He will make your path straight. 

Display your faith with this gold foil print as it reminds you to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus as He guides you through the waves of life. 

 

After reading this message, how will you surrender to the Lord? What are you believing God for?

Please pray for my son Sebastián. He is 28 and has made wrong choices that are taking him out of God’s path. Pray so his eyes are opened to see God’s will his ears to hear God’s voice. Pray so he receives peace in his heart and he can renew his mind. I am confident that only God can do what we are not able. Thanks

I believe God for a devine guidance, for his will over my life and that his will works in two different ways, the perfect will and the permissive will. Please pray with me for the perfect will of God to dwell in me and that I have strength and courage to stand against the storms of the devil.

I believe and know that God hears and answered my prayers, he healed my toe from a hard injury. I gave and trusted my healing to Jesus. He gave it to his Father God, and God healed it within the week. Thank God in the name if your Son Christ Jesus from my heart I say, thank you…
He also is answering the prayers of world leaders learning is is the true leader if this world. This week the 2sides of Korea met to end their war.
Again, in the name of your Son Christ Jesus we say thank for hearing our prayers to touch the hearts of these leaders and remind them that this is your world.
