Letting Go When We Want to Hang On


"There comes a crisis hour to each of us, if God has called us to the highest and best, when all resources fail; when we face either ruin or something higher than we ever dreamed; when we must have infinite help from God and yet, ere we can have it, we must let something go; we must surrender completely; we must cease from our own wisdom, strength, and righteousness, and become crucified with Christ and alive in Him.  God knows how to lead us up to this crises, and He knows how to lead us through it." ~Streams in the Desert


 Isaiah 43:1-3 "But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and
he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I
have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

 When thou
passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers,
they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou
shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour…"


I Kings 17:16 "And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail,
according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah."


I just want to encourage you today, my friend, to let go, step out and walk with the Lord through the crisis.

It is not easy, but it is the way to victory!


"The mighty God can make us stronger than our circumstances.  He can bend them all to our good…We can even take hold of a black disappointment, break it open, and extract some jewel of grace." ~Dr. Jowett
