Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you (Matthew 17:20).
Faith can move mountains. I truly believe that, with faith, we are able to achieve more than we can ever imagine. It takes great courage to overcome one’s fears and take that leap of faith. It may be difficult to let go of control, but time and time again, I am reminded that God is in control of everything. It is also not easy to step out of one’s comfort zone and let God take the wheel, sort to speak, but I must say that from my own personal experiences, it is in those moments of surrender that God truly makes His presence known. It is in those moments of sweet surrender that God does His greatest work and performs miracles in our lives.
As a dear friend once told me, “God’s timing is a strange thing, but when you let go of the wheel and allow Him to drive, you can sit back and enjoy the ride.” She is absolutely right! When we surrender all our fears and worries to God, we allow the real healing and transformation to take place within ourselves — spiritually, mentally and physically — and God is able to transform our lives in ways that we are not able to imagine.
Remember, however, that when we decide to let go, this does not mean that our faith will not be tested and things will be easy. There are times things in our lives must be broken apart for God to do His work and put the pieces back together where they belong. There are times situations will arise that become opportunities for us to change our focus, put us back on track or simply steer us in the right direction. We must also remember to trust in God’s intervention and that everything happens in accordance with God’s plan and, therefore, everything has a time and purpose.
