a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, Ecclesiastes 3:6
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
Enemies take different forms. We often think of them as people, but they can also take shape through our insecurities, our doubts, and even our thoughts.
What are you holding on to? Do you ever feel like if you let go, you’ll fall into a pit of chaos or hopelessness? There’s a time to fight and hang on for dear life and then there’s a time to release.
We need to let go of our “control” and perceived outcome on how God should move in our situation. That’s how we will come to know peace and hope.
We need to also release praise, worship, thanksgiving and our fears about the future, as well as our grip on the outcome of our current circumstances.
Sometimes letting go is the best battle strategy we could ever choose, what fighting looks like and where we find our strength.
It’s both facing the battle and letting go. You can stand firm on your battlefield and still choose to release. But what do we release?
We release our thanksgiving and praise and remember who God is and what he has done. That’s how we battle.
