Let It Go

The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

Our relationship with the Triune can be so influenced by our relationship with one another here. As a child we are born to trust but over time, our people, whom are imperfect, chip away at our innocence.

There is a theory, that if you can find what area’s of faith you struggle with, there is a direct influence of relational issues and strengths you carry, a belief system, based on what relationship you struggled with or relied on most in your life; what message you received.

This is it, broken down. This is rough and not perfect but hope will convey the point.

God is the Father: The Head, the corrector, the protector. What our relationship to our own father is, can determine what our relationship to God is. Are we intimidated, unsure of His approval? Is he a loving father, a distant, seemingly uncaring father? Is he weak?

The Holy Spirit: Comforting, convicting, full of wisdom, the promptings or thoughts in our head come from the Holy Spirit in us. Our relationship with our mother can influence our relationship with the Holy Spirit. What message did your mother give you. Do you have guilt or shame? Did you feel safe and loved? This area is great because of the wisdom factor.

Jesus is the Son, the giver, the heart. The unconditional love and acceptance. No matter what you have done, He loves you anyways.To believe He died for you, to truly have a relationship of faith and trust with Jesus, to see Him as your salvation, is influenced by your relationship with your friendships and can also be influenced by your role in your family with your siblings.

Finding the area’s within you that may need healing, to forgive or to lay at the foot of the cross because it is so huge, but that which may be keeping you from fully embracing a trusting, child-like relationship with the Triune. We are to become like children. That means letting go of all the messages we received over a lifetime and going back to square one. It means forgiveness, and a leap of faith. The world will tell you all sorts of stuff, but the fact is, most doesn’t line up to The Word of God.

The Word will not tell you to judge, not even your enemies. It will tell you to love your enemies. To love those that do wrong. To see those in need and distress. To especially love your fellow Christ followers because we cannot know what it truly means to have Grace and Mercy without that love; to be loved so much we know we are saved and washed clean of our sins, for no other reason than putting all our hearts and trust into one sacrificial lamb, one amazing Father, and to allow the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to reside within our hearts.

Find your idols, you will find your insecurity. Find your insecurities, you find your belief system. Humble yourself and let The Father, Son and Holy Ghost, heal your belief system, become child like and watch your faith grow.

We seek and seek, we try to run from or find the source of our pain, rather than finding the source of our hope. Our faithlessness or inability to trust is worldly. Seek and grasp your worth in the Holy Promise.

God chose every single one of us;Designed us and loves us beyond measure. Some of us will lay our hearts at the foot of that promise, letting it build great hope in us. Other’s will walk with a desire for more but a lack of ability to believe we don’t design our own destiny. We do, with free will, but heaven can only be achieved by letting go of self and leaping out away from the legalism of religion, pride, and trying to bend and twist a most difficult yet simple truth.

We can never be good enough nor bad enough to achieve or not achieve salvation. We can only be child like enough in our trust in Him, that He meant what he said. There is nothing weak about letting go of the idea that your life depends on you, do you really honestly believe you have complete control? Truth is: Your life depends on your relationship to the Triune.
