Let It Go! (PART 1)



Blessings are tied to promises. What has God told you to do? We do not serve a fickle God. If God made the covenant on Monday, God will back His covenant on Tuesday. He does not need your help, nor does He need mine to carry out His purpose and plan.

In the book of Genesis, God told Abraham that the blessed seed would come through Sarah, Abraham’s wife -not Hagar (the servant). When Hagar gave birth to Ismael, though he was Abraham’s seed, he was not the seed of promise. There came a day, as painful as it was for Abraham, when he had to send Hagar and Ismael away. The promise was through Isaac - not Ismael.

Sometimes, in our lives, people, situations and things may be fulfilling and good to us, but they may not be good for us. Don’t confuse your provision (that which was produced from human effort) with God’s promise (that which was manifested and ordained by God).

As painful as some things may be - regardless to the gratification and pleasure it may have brought, part with it- if it is not in line with the promise. Detach yourself from it - least it becomes the accursed thing! Let it go!
