I get asked the question, “just how do you let go and let God?”  While it’s not easy, it’s quite simple.

You don’t just make up in your mind one day to just let go and let God.  It’s a journey.  A commitment to let go of your own thoughts and what you think the solution is and choosing to give it all over to God!

To simply say out of your mouth, “I have faith,” is NOT enough.  Faith is choosing what you don’t know and cannot see, yet believing anyway.  I’ve learned that God is not common to man.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24

In order to know what real faith is, you must know WHO the Father is, BELIEVE that He is and set yourself apart — in other words, die to flesh and live by the spirit.  At this point you are NO longer thinking or doing the things of the world, you are now in complete agreement {submission to} with the Spirit of God thereby seeking God — spirit to Spirit.  I’ll make it even simpler to understand:

And Jacob’s well was there. So Jesus, tired as He was from His journey, sat down to rest by the well. Presently, when a woman of Samaria came along to draw water, Jesus said to her, Give Me a drink—For His disciples had gone off into the town to buy food—The Samaritan woman said to Him, How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan and a woman, for a drink?—For the Jews have nothing to do with the Samaritans—Jesus answered her, If you had only known and had recognized God’s gift and Who this is that is saying to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him instead and He would have given you living water.

She said to Him, Sir, You have nothing to draw with [no drawing bucket] and the well is deep; how then can You provide living water? Where do You get Your living water?  Are You greater than and superior to our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well and who used to drink from it himself, and his sons and his cattle also?  Jesus answered her, All who drink of this water will be thirsty again.  But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.  John 4:6-14 Amplified

When you {personally} know God, you will acquire {uncommon to the world} spiritual understanding/wisdom that is not of yourself.  At this point you will begin to hear when the Holy Spirit speaks to you.  Jesus said:

 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand. — John 10:27-28

And now this scripture (below) makes just that more {spiritual} sense:

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. — Romans 10:17

So now how do you remain in faith?  “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” — James 2:26.

While I wouldn’t say this is the best example, I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean. Picture this:  Would you agree that we don’t acquire the things in life we need by just wishing they appear, right?  In order to pay your mortgage, rent, utilities, buy groceries, daycare, tuition, clothes, etc., you must WORK (a job, entrepreneur, etc.) to obtain the income to do so, Amen?  Even Adam had to WORK:

Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. — Genesis 2:15

The same goes for faith… you must cultivate it and keep it — Faith is what you practice on a daily basis.  In the beginning, it’s uncomfortable because you won’t fully understand it, however, the more you “renew your mind” with the Word of God, the simpler it becomes.  In a way, it should become a way of life(style) for you.   Your faith will increase and you will eventually let go and let God!

Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. — 1 Peter 5:7

I encourage you to study what faith truly means.  Pray and worship God in TRUTH… HE will know the sincerity of your desires because…

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. —  Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Here’s to “letting go and letting God!”

    Thank you Regina for this message. It’s a struggle sometimes truly letting go and letting God. I have strong faith but, I really need to submit to His will & let go.

    Oh my yes, Royce! For anyone who has gone through learning to let go, we can testify to the struggle, however, we can also testify about when we made the choice to do it, how He came in with a peace that surspaseth ALL worldly understanding. Isn’t He awesome? “Ain’t nothing to it… but to DO IT!” 😉
