My two year old daughter has this habit: when she is holding something in her hand and you offer her something new, (especially if it is a food item 😜), she literally releases whatever is in her hand to the ground and quickly reaches out to receive the new item.
Much as we have lost some valuable items from my daughter’s “drop and receive” tactics, I have learnt a valuable lesson from her: For us to be able to receive something new from God, we often must be willing to let go of what we are currently holding in our hand. If your hands are full, there is no room to receive.
Yet the fear to let go of what we have right now constantly holds us back from God’s next best thing.
What is God asking you to release today? Trust Him and let go so you can receive provisions for the next part of your journey.
Have a great week!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (NKJV)
