A battle wages within me—holding on to my desires or letting go of them so that I can, in turn, grasp onto God's desires. When I hold on to my way, I am letting go of the things of God. Recent events have revealed to me that holding on to my way often brings conflict leading to bitterness and anger—not good. Letting go allows space for the things of God as He opens the door for spiritual blessing.
Jesus spoke of this to the Pharisees,
You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men. Mark 7:8 NIV
Holding on to my desires comes so naturally. Yet I long for the blessings of love, hope and peace only possible when I let go.
Will you join me this week, letting go and grasping hold of God’s desires?
