My pride tells me that when I’m in the middle of a fight with God because I refuse to let go of something, that I’m going to lose. I don’t want to give up on whatever it is that I’m holding on to, because I’m afraid of being on the losing end of the game.
The truth is, that God never wants us to lose. If we’re in a fight with God, it’s because God wants something better for us and something else is trying to destroy that plan. We become our own worst enemy when we think we know better than God’s desire for us.
So don’t be afraid to let go of whatever it is that you’re holding onto. It might feel like you’re losing, but you’re actually letting go so that something better can grow.
