1 Peter 5;7 “Cast all your anxiety on HIM because HE cares for you!”
“Letting Go” Timing!
Road weary, battle scarred,
“left for dead” — stranded,
so are those laid low whose
souls did not know CHRIST.
Thus found without Hope
or one chance for survival;
their vessels — (devoid of
our SAVIOUR) — despair.
Yet! With Vehement zeal,
they’ll argue for more;
War then “chosen” far
over Surrender’s relief.
Thus embrace they these pains,
every lost member fallen,
preferring their struggles
above Victory’s Cross!
As HIServant reminded to surrender each hour to my LORD,
Devotional: Ecclesiastes 3:6 “(There’s) a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away…
“Letting Go”’s Timing! as it might be better worded for this, is that moment when we let go of our struggles.
Those which have unconsciously become our identity for some.
Sometimes Illness has a way of becoming part of our name after some amount of Time has passed.
As such, Routine takes charge and leads us backwards to Complacency, Indifference and sadly Resentment without Hope.
But to me, all such moments as these and other distractions have a “root cause” spiritually.
Their voices all sound something like this. “You’ll never get better!”, “ No one’s coming for you!”, “This is as good as it gets!”, “Who are you kidding? You’re no one special!”
When those voices are “tuned into” so that one “prefers” / gives preferential place the shouts of struggle, loss, conflict, and all sorts of disappointment…
…then our surrender isn’t to our CREATOR. It’s forfeit giving up to the world which has already been defeated for us…by HIM!
Consider James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to GOD. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you!”
Don’t you flee the battle in favor of satans’ever increasing chains of Depression!
No! Instead surrender all to THE LORD…WHO has already won your battle….and the war!
So “give up” this struggle which satan demands you fight in unceasingly. Rather “give in” to The ONE WHO has promised and shall make HIS victory yours every hour!
Amen and amen!
