Let Go and Let God!

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3. In this verse God’s promised peace has two conditions: First, it is for those who trust in Him, which means to commit ourselves to the Lord, lean on Him, and hope confidently in Him. Second, it is for those who fix their thoughts on God. We are often preoccupied and have our minds focused on many other things. We sometimes feel like we have a tape in our minds that keeps replaying a list of responsibilities, tasks and scheduled activities, problems and burdens, and the tragedies and fearful things going on in the world around us. But when we fix our minds and thoughts on the character and attributes of the Lord our God, we have something different playing in our minds: the reminder that God is our everlasting rock, our refuge in times of trouble, the Lord Almighty who holds the whole world and each of us individually in his hands. This week especially I have been reminded to ‘Let go and let God’. Ali
