We all need a reason to do something or not to do anything, be it good or bad. It’s a common verse- “All things work together for good to them that love the Lord God and are called according to his purpose.” Yet, we fail to recognize this in the face of adversity. Reading through these six reasons why you need to let go and let God will help you understand why you need to move on and allow God to do the rest. Let go and let God!
God has assured us that he will do a new thing in our lives. He assures us that it will spring up and he will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
It’s not easy listening to someone tell you, “you need to let go.” Especially if the person meant the world to you, no warm talk would take the pain you feel in your stomach and your heart away.
Letting go is hard, but it’s possible. Here are six beautiful reasons why you need to let go and let God:
. You’re not alone.
You’re not alone. God’s got you. He’s the most outstanding master planner who will never alter his designs without having a better plan.
God can not remove anything from you without having a plan to replace it with something better. If someone you love is gone from you, and you’ve done everything to have them back, but it didn’t, then let go. Whatever didn’t work out for you as planned could be God’s unique way of telling you he’s got a better thing for you.

. You need to learn from the experience.
Experience, as they say, is the best teacher. Learning when you’re hurting isn’t always wanted, but it’s possible. Be sure to take advantage of the chance to learn something new. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from life (and I am still learning), it is to accept that people come and go. God has never stopped speaking, even when everywhere is silent.
The people you may have met in the past may no longer be around. The friends you expected to stick around may have deserted you, and you ask God why? The fact is, God doesn’t just allow things to happen. He does things orderly, and his thoughts for you are of good and not of evil.
. Everything happens for a reason.
Sometimes we are the inventor of our dilemmas. We run ahead of God and go as far as making decisions for him. Understand that when you walk with the Lord, he gives you visions about your future and life. He shows you what he intends to accomplish with you and through you.
Everybody may not see what you see or know the future that God is guiding you, but you understand that everything he does is for a reason.
. To fulfill God’s, Divine Will.
God’s ultimate divine plan is that we live, move, and have our being in him. He needs us to live with him forever in his kingdom. When we learn to let go and let God, we permit God to do his will. So, when someone or something gets in the way of God’s will and plan for our lives, he will remove them.
“For his thoughts towards us are of good and not of evil, to give us an expected end – Jeremiah 29:11.”
. What you are clinging to may be toxic.
There are many toxic people around us. And you may encounter some of them daily. People allow us to see what they want us to see, but God sees and knows the heart. God sees and understands all of the secret thoughts and conversations others have about us. God knows our limits and how much we can take on.
Therefore when he removes someone from you, let him. He has probably seen that what you’re clinging to tenaciously is toxic to your life.
When this happens, you need to let go and let God do what he knows how to do best – protect you.
. The person you’re refusing to let go of is needed somewhere else.
Letting go is difficult, but hanging on to someone needed somewhere else is more painful. You may forcefully make people stay, but it may not work out for your good. God has a great plan for everyone’s life, including someone toxic to you. Everyone has a purpose and has been called to fulfill it in one way or another. That can only happen when you let go and let God.
Everything that happens in your life follows his plan. He knows the end from the beginning at the same time. When God removes someone from your life, trust his plan. It’s possible that they aren’t suitable for you. Sometimes we hold on to things thinking that this is the best life offers. We don’t know what God has in store for us.
Quit chasing after people God has removed from your life. He pulled them for a reason. Not everyone deserves to be held or attached to. The people God allows into our lives are there for a purpose. We need to understand that and stop mixing things up.
Remember, all things work together for good to them, love the Lord, and are called according to his purpose.
Let go and let God.
