Update // Congratulations to our winners for this giveaway: Annie, Cher, Stacey, and Beth!
This month we’ve been taking some time to talk about release. As we watch the leaves change and fall from their branches, we are reminded how lovely it can be to let dead things go. What has God taught you about releasing this month?
Has He told you to release yourself from the weight of the others’ expectations? Or perhaps from your own expectations?
Have you felt Him ask you to let go of an addiction that is holding your soul captive? Or of a dream that is not part of His best plan for your life?
Has He prodded you to allow Him to release you from shame? Fear? Bitterness?
We are all holding on to something that is hindering our walk with Christ. It could be a sin pattern we’ve battled for years, or it could be a new set of entanglements that has been brought on by a new season or position in life. We clench these sins with white-knuckled fists, convinced that life is better when we’re holding on.
But when have our plans ever been better than God’s?
Today, take some time to think about what God is asking you to release. Ask Him to teach your heart how to let it go, and trust that He’ll fill in the gap with something far greater.
We’d love to see you lean in to letting go by studying what God’s Word has to say about it. On Tuesday, we recommended a few Bible studies that teach us how to release: Recovering Redemption by Matt Chandler, The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer, and Breaking Free and Living Free by Beth Moore.
Today we’re giving 4 winners 1 Bible Study Book of their choice from those listed above. To enter to win, simply fill out the form below.
