Stop what you’re doing…open up your hands and let go of something you’ve been holding onto.
Before we can move forward, we have to let go. We begin our journey of recognizing God’s presence by practicing the discipline of submission. Often, when we are wrestling with a situation, we do everything in our power to control our circumstances. We attempt to manage our surroundings relying solely on our limited ability and perspective. We exhaust all our options to fix our situation on our own. Loosening our grip is an act of faith. Giving control over to God isn’t showing weakness, but rather displaying strength. Submission leads to obedience.
