And what is “The Message?” “… this is ‘The Message’that you heard from the beginning, that we should LOVE one another.” See 1 John 3:9-11
Ready? Set? Then Let It Go!
Let It Go? What? Why? Well, because you can’t love like God says we are to love until you “Let It Go.” FORGIVE. Let go and Let God. Live and Learn. Love and Lead others into “Letting It Go.” Now there’s a thought.
So, what are you waiting on? Are you waiting on God to come to you? Why? The scripture says, Look to God and Be Saved. Isaiah 45:22
Here’s a great illustration to help you think through the process of “Letting It Go.” Whatever “It” may be.Check this out.
A man was sitting in his car at a traffic light with traffic backed up behind him. The light changed to green, he didn’t move, and then the light changed back to red. This exact same scenario happen several times, and each time the man remained at the light.
Needless to say, the other drivers behind him were a bit upset by his inability to go forward, so one driver politely got out of his car to inquire if the man needed assistance. Walking pretty swiftly towards the seemingly stalled driver, when he reached the car of the first driver, he gently tapped on the window and asked if indeed his car was stalled, to which the first driver responded to the man’s question with an affirming “No, actually my car is working fine.”
Totally confused at this point, the inquiring 2nd driver then says to the first driver, “well sir, may I ask you a question,” to which the first driver sheepishly responded, “why, yes sir, go ahead.” “Good,” the second driver said very abruptly. “Well sir, were you waiting on the traffic light to change to a particular shade of green before you move forward?” ….
My friend, that’s my question for you today, concerning that challenge you’re experiencing even now, or, that life changing decision you’re facing, or perhaps you know you need to: Forgive, “Let It Go,” Love like God says Love. Love with NO Fear, etc.
Please my friend, time is winding up and you’re missing out on God’s best for YOUR life. So won’t you prayerfully consider the following:
1. What are YOU waiting for before you sincerely GO to God in prayer about “IT?”
2. When will God, The Living Word, become LORD of EVERY detail of your life?
3. Who bewitched you into thinking that you can run your life and everything that concerns you?
4. Where do you plan to go when you leave this earth, keeping in mind that this world is NOT your home?
5. Why aren’t you able to “GO” forward in living out the words to the song, “I Surrender ALL?”
I challenge you today to “LET IT GO” Whatever “IT” is. … So you made some mistakes, some really bad decisions, some crazy choices in your life and you’re now experiencing the consequences of your past sin.
Have you “first John one nine’d it?” Check it out, that’s 1 John 1:9.
Unfortunately, this happens to many of us …. We’ve confessed our mess as sin, we’ve received God’s forgiveness based on The Blood of Jesus, but we won’t move forward, why is that? Is Jesus’ blood not enough for you? Could it be that you haven’t forgiven yourself? Have you figured out HOW to “Surrender ALL?”
At Mt Sinai we have sooooo many weekly opportunities for you to get the helps you need. Check these out and know that many are praying both with and for you, because you are loved with an everlasting love.
See Jeremiah 31:3
