Letting Go

walk-by-faithI want to see how everything is going to turn out. I like knowing where we are going, what we are doing, how things are heading. That’s what I like. That’s what I feel comfortable doing.

I don’t like the unknown. I like knowing. I like being in control. I don’t like letting go. So for someone like me, today’s reading is one that I need to hear a lot, because I don’t do it by nature.

Listen to what Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:5-7:

He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.

We are reminded today that we walk by faith, not be sight. Faith is the key, in everything.

We are saved by faith. We walk by faith. We live by faith. Faith is it.

What is faith? Trust. Belief. Letting go. Turning over control. Letting God take the wheel. Knowing that even if we don’t know where we are going.

He does.

And that’s why we can trust and have hope and walk by faith. Because He knows where we are going. He knows what is happening. He knows where the road is headed. He sees.

Even through we don’t. We walk by faith. We can trust. We can hope. We can believe. We walk by faith and not by sight.

But, because we trust in God, we can trust in where the road is taking us.

Today, let go. Trust. Walk by faith. God’s got this.
