Do you ever wonder what people mean when they tell us, “Let go and let God”? What are they suggesting we “let go” of? To me the phrase has become a cliché. Well-meaning folks offer the words as meager consolation. The speaker relegates the sufferer’s dilemma to a problem for God to handle. It seems to be more for the speaker than the sufferer. The speaker can walk away patting themselves on the back for having ministered to a hurting soul and offering them a quick fix for their problem.
While God is capable of solving problems, the phrase seems to indicate that before we “let” God handle it, we have to “let go”. But “let go” of what?
Please remember to leave me your comments.
Thank you, and have a blessed day!
