Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - May 20, 2010

Good morning,


Our devotion for today comes from Psalm 37:5 "Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act." 


Wherever you are today (Selah), think on this; one day a child playing with a valuable vase got his hand stuck in it and couldn't get it out. Before resorting to breaking the vase, his father said, "Son, relax, just open your hand and pull it out."  To their astonishment the little guy said, "I can't.  If I do I'll drop my penny." 


A lot of us are just like him, so busy holding onto something of little worth that we can't accept what God offers!  Let go!  Let God have His way! 


Loretta P. Burns writes: "As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend, I brought my broken dreams to God because He is my friend.  But then instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone, I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.  At last I snatched them back and cried, 'How can you be so slow?' 'My child,' He said, 'What could I do you never did let go.'"


"Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass" (Ps 37:3-5). 


Trust God's hands and allow Him to work.  He's neither intimidated nor stumped by your circumstances.  Check His resume.  Do you seriously think your problem is too big for Him, or that He can't do it without your help?  Come on, give it to God and watch what happens! 


Have a blessed letting go and let God day!


Your brother in Christ,

J. H. Flakes, III
