Release control over the outcome
God's ways are not our ways; His ways are better. He can see the big picture for our lives and he has the better approach, that is why we need to release control and let God show us the best for our life. If you think you have to have this promotion, or a relationship to be happy, then you are only going to get frustrated, angry and probably disappointed. When that happens we feel as though even God is against us but I am here to tell you that sometimes we can not control our outcome. We should release control and say: "God show me the way and I will follow your lead."
When life throws you a curb ball, that is the perfect moment to tell God that you Trust Him and then show him that you still can be happy in the present moment. During your challenging time, it is the perfect time to prove that you can continue to walk around with a smile on your face and a hop in your step. Your life is not ended it is simply given a detour. That is the time to surrender to God's will and release the outcome and follow the clues that He is showing you.
There are numerous verses in the Book of Psalms that relates to this very topic. Gain courage and strength from them because there were written by King Solomon to help us during our difficulties. Psalm 37:5 " Commit your way to the Lord. Trust also in Him and He shall direct your way and bring this to pass."
God wants us to cast our burdens on Him and let Him do the work and show us the right path to follow; but that doesn't mean that we are to sit down and do nothing. We all need to do our part but when we have done our best and been diligent, we then need to relax and enjoy life right where we are. God has you in the palm of His hand so release control and TRUST God. That is when you will see new doors open, new friendships spring forth and new opportunities will coming to pass.
Only God can bring the sunshine. We need to plant the seeds, to water them and cultivate the soil, but when you have completed your task, then you need to cast your cares on the Lord and know that the problems, the situation is in His hands. Release control.
There are certain things in our lives that we cannot control, for example, the weather or even a traffic jam but we certainly can control our attitude, our behavior and the environment in which we dwell. With God's help, nothing is Impossible! This is the time to grow in wisdom and knowledge that if you are to fulfill your destiny according to plan that has been designed by your Creator, you are going to need to let go and let God.
