Rest in His Promise
“…and she said to Abraham, ‘Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.’ ” Genesis 21:10 (NIV)
Comparing Abraham’s miracle from God (Isaac) to the one he tried to accomplish on his own (Ishmael).
Sometimes it is just time to let something go.
Something you are striving for, not something God has given to you. ‘De-clutter’ so to speak.
Look for the reasons we might be finding it difficult to walk away from those things – is it to please others, or ‘because it’s what we’ve always done’ – maybe it’s position over mission?
Don’t try to make things happen in our own strength, and push open doors that are closed for a reason.
We need to let go of the things God has not placed in our lives and spend that valuable time and energy heading towards that which we know He has called us to.
It is God who gives us the desires of our heart, and following His will for our life is the most fulfilling way to live it.
