Sometimes, you’ve got to let go of the good to gain the great. Let your heart be ready.
September’s Awakening, Day 30
Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
Do not let the good things in life rob you of the best things.
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:21–23 NIV
Never sell yourself short. God may have something great for you, if you methodically sacrifice a bit now, and give up some of the good you have now, all to gain His great. You won’t be disappointed. But great comes at a cost, and you must diligently follow His lead. Holding on to the good can prevent you from grabbing hold of the great. If God speaks to your heart to let something go, rest assured, He has something much better for you. Letting go can be frightening, but holding on can be stifling. Trust in Him. Remember, He wants the best and greatest for you, you must simply follow. Maybe it’s time for you to exchange your good for His great and best.
