Stop, present tense

These lyrics dropped in my spirit …

As soon as I stop worrying
Worrying how the story ends
I let go and I let God
Let God have His way
That’s when things start happening
When I stopped looking at back then
I let go and I let God
Let God have his way

I don’t know who this is for, but let God have His way. Yes, I know you’ve prayed and it seems like the answer isn’t coming quick enough. You’ve been fasting and still no end to your storm or clarity in your situation. Been calling out to God and still unsure of your assignment. Been faithful and womb still shut. Studying God’s word and still stagnant. Waiting and it feels like it’s in vain.

Cutoff notice, no food, Christmas is coming up and no money, sickness, disease, family fighting, job treating you like they’ve lost their minds, marriage on rocky ground, kids won’t do right, friends acting like enemies, before you can grieve one death another happens and you’re trying to hold on, but losing your grip.

Baby, let God be God. See, the worst mistake you can make, at this moment, is treating God like He isn’t the one who can do what you need. Today, tonight, or in the morning (whenever you go to bed), rest like you know God got it because He does.

As soon as I stop worrying — stop is present tense. This means, at this present time. Beloved, I don’t know what you’re worried about, but stop. Stop, let go and let God, let God have His way.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” – ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:23‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
