Lay It down and Let God
Matthew 11:29 (KJB) Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
God’s instruction is straight and to the point. It is easy sounding, lay your problems down and let Him handle them. This can be easy to read and say to yourself but putting it into practice can be anything but easy!
The truth never changes that God is able (Ephesians 3:20). He can take care of any and every situation that comes into our lives. Often, when we find ourselves in the middle of a stressing or pressing situation. Or an untoward situation seems to have us tied up in knots of worry and anticipation that the worst is about to take place, we turn inward rather than upward with our focus and thoughts.
Looking upward is exactly what God asks us to do. Be comforted, learn of God, and rest in His concern and His capabilities in any situation at hand in your life. Lean on Him and allow Him to plow through any unpleasant and troubling circumstances staring you in the face in this world.
Yes, let go and let God!
God is the only one who can provide what you need, when you need it, and how you need it. He is the ultimate comforter and rest for your soul, now and forevermore. Latch onto Him and find perpetual rest for your soul.
