Daily Devotional – 12/11/15 “It ends today!”

When I let go and I let God, let God have His way … Things started happening so I’m about to do it again. I’m letting go of wayward thinking children, I’m letting go of fear, I’m letting go of what I think, I’m letting go of ‘this may not be my time’ and I’m letting God. I’m letting God have His way. See, I found out that when I try to do it, I mess stuff up. When I try to figure things out, on my own; I end up adding in my carnal thoughts. When I try to take myself places, the doors won’t open. When I try to rise without God, there’s no fire in my hot air balloon. When I try to do it, it never works. So you know what, I surrender God!

Cut off notice

And somebody on today is going through the same thing. You’re fighting in your sleep because the enemy is determined to not let you succeed. You’re fighting when you’re awake because so-called Saints are more conniving than the unsaved. You’re fighting on the job and then you got to fight at home too. You’re fighting with your finances trying to make them stretch. You’re fighting with the car, begging it to hold on. You’re fighting with sickness because it’s trying to win. And you’re asking, when will it end? Well, beloved … it ends today. Whatever you’re fighting with, the hell with it! “Cast your burden on the LORD, and He will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved. – Psalm 55:22” Baby, build you a spiritual fire and throw everything that you can’t fix in it and allow the aroma to make it to God’s nose and then let Him handle it. Don’t go another day in that depression of trying to figure it out by yourself. Don’t move another step without the guidance of the Lord. Don’t make another decision without God’s approval. Today is the last day you will be depressed, broken or suicidal. Today is the last day you shall be without. Today is the last day for you to fight alone. “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will act. – Psalm 37:5” You can do it! YES YOU CAN! You can become it! YES YOU CAN! You can overcome it! YES YOU CAN! The negative thoughts, the tears, the fears, the addictions, the strongholds, the generational curses, the mistakes of your past, the ‘I can’t do it’ talk; it all ends today.

Say, “God, I surrender ALL” and mean it! Let go and let God and mean it!
