How to let go and let God: Breaking free of emotional bondage and becoming your best self through Christ. (Pt.4)

Hey, my good people. This is part 4, so make sure you’ve read 1-3, before jumping in. Tomorrow I’ll publish part 5, God willing, and that will wrap up this series. I really hope that this has helped those of you that need help in this area of your life. Anyway, without further ado, here’s part 4 of How to let go and let God. Be blessed.

Matthew 18:21-22

21 Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.

Stop making everything about them.

But what about what they did? I deserve an apology. They should be punished. Listen, get over it. I’m not being insensitive, I’m being honest. What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. You went through that bad breakup, that failed business, that betrayal, they gossiped and frowned upon you, spoke negative words on you, used and abused you, but guess what, it didn’t kill you. You’re still here, which means God still has plans for your life, but you gotta stop making your life about them! Genesis 50:20, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Someone somewhere is thinking, “ I hAven’T mAdE mY liFe aBoUt tHem… I bEeN mOvEd oN!” 🙄 Okay… but moving on and moving forward is two different things. You can move on physically and still be emotionally and spiritually stagnant if you have the wrong mindset. Moving on with the same old mindset, will only create more of the same old problems you’ve had in your past. Why? Because you’re carrying around 🗣 the same old baggage! If you want to move forward, with a fresh mindset. A free mindset. A mindset that’s focused on the here and now, not the past or the people in it. If you want a mindset that’s able to manage the blessings ahead, then forget them and focus on your personal relationship with Christ, and your growth, healing and success. Stop waiting on an apology and forgive them instead. It’s only hard when your feelings are in the way. Get out of your feelings. But I… But he… But she… But they… But it… Listen, they or it only feeds off the power YOU give them. Stop giving people and situations your power. Power belongs to God. ( read Psalm 62) Stop putting people on the throne of your heart and living your life in response to what they’ve done or said to you, be it good or bad. Don’t give another human being power over your life, and don’t allow your past or a current situation to dictate your present nor your future. Let go and let God. Stop making everything about them, and what they did to you. Forgiveness is for you!
Forgive them for YOUR HEALING.
Forgive them for YOUR FREEDOM.
Forgive them for YOUR CALLING.
Forgive them for YOUR ANOINTING.
Forgive them for your PEACE.
Forgive them for your BREAKTHROUGH.
Forgive them for your DESTINY.
Forgive them for your OVERFLOW.
Forgive them for your LEGACY.
Forgive them for your SALVATION.
If you want to walk in the fullness of who God created you to be, you have to learn how to let people be. Let the offense go. Let your previous mindset go. Let the unfairness go. 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.” You don’t have any more time to waste being bitter, angry, resentful, negative or being a victim. You are victorious through Christ and you have a destiny to fulfill. Glory be to God! 🙌🏾 Listen my loves, when you can’t control it, it’s not meant for you to fight it. Release it. Let go and let God, and trust that He will handle the situation in His timing and in His way.

1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
