Genesis 48:11(NLT) Then Jacob said to Joseph, “I never thought I would see your face again, but now God has let me see your children, too!”
Some people go through life excusing their shortcomings because of some disadvantage they have had set against them. Others have grown up in great families and circumstances of great advantage and privilege. Many people we know have had less in their lives to overcome and less occasion to fail.
If you are one who hasn’t had these benefits and you’ve had a disadvantage or two to overcome, you may feel angry, resentful, and even ashamed as a result. If so, I need to tell to you today it’s time to move forward in your life. And the only way to move forward is to let go and let God. Letting go is so simple and at the same time so hard to do. Daily, we face the same challenge; a challenge to surrender. Let go of your will, your power, your bitterness, and angry feelings of resentment to God. Release and purge yourself so His Holy Spirit can come and fill the void. Let go and let God do it for you great people of God!
Point to ponder- It’s time to let go and let God heal you of that part of your past that still controls your destiny. God has a marvelous way of working out our past; look at today’s reading with Jacob and see how the Lord allow him to experience great joy at the latter days of his life. Have a great Monday the Lord has allowed us another day of life!
