The Freedom of Letting Go: Trusting God’s Guidance When It’s Time to Move On

Letting go is hard. Whether it’s a relationship, a job, or a dream we’ve been holding onto for years, it’s difficult to release the familiar and take a leap into the unknown.

Sometimes, letting go is the only way to find growth and freedom. 

Trusting God’s guidance can help us release situations that are no longer serving us and provide the strength needed to move forward. 

Let’s look at the process of letting go and how trusting in God’s plan can provide the comfort and direction we need. 

Recognizing When It’s Time to Let Go

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭18‬-‭19‬

Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine whether a situation is worth holding onto or if it’s time to move on. 

By taking time to pray and listen for God’s guidance, we can gain clarity and direction. 

When we trust God’s plan, we can have confidence in the decisions we make and the path we take. 

Praying for discernment can provide the peace and reassurance we need to let go of what’s holding us back and embrace the opportunities ahead.

Pray for Discernment

“I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭125‬ 

When we pray for discernment, we invite God’s wisdom and guidance to help us make the right decision. 

It can be difficult to know the difference between our own desires and God’s will.

We may even fear making the wrong decision; this might cause us to hold on to things that are holding us back.  

When we trust in God, we can have confidence that He will lead us down the right path.

This puts us in a position of surrender and humility, acknowledging that God’s plan is greater than our own. 

By relinquishing control and trusting in God’s plan, we can move forward with confidence and peace.

Surrender and Trust in God’s Plan

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭3‬ 

Surrendering our will and trusting in God’s plan can be challenging but it’s definitely worth it.

We must let go of our own desires, fears, and need for control.  

Instead we should have humility, trust, and a willingness to release the burdens that weigh us down

By surrendering our will, we acknowledge God’s wisdom is greater than our own.

It means accepting that there may be aspects of our lives that we cannot fully comprehend or control, but believing that everything happens for a reason.

Finding Comfort in God’s Presence

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭32‬:‭8‬ 

Finding comfort in God’s presence is a source of solace and peace in the midst of uncertainty and challenges. 

God’s presence is a constant source of comfort and strength when we feel weary or burdened. 

It is in His presence that we find a deep sense of confidence and security, knowing that we are never alone.  

When we intentionally seek Him and spend time in His presence through prayer, worship, and meditation, we experience His love and the undeniable peace that surpasses all understanding. 

His presence gives us the strength to let go and move on to new opportunities.  

Letting Go and Embracing New Possibilities

He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭40‬:‭3‬ 

Although letting go is never easy, it’s necessary for growth.

Finding the courage to let go of what we’ve known for so long can be terrifying. 

It’s natural to feel nervous about the unknown and the uncertainty of what lies ahead. 

However, when we embrace the change that comes with letting go, we open ourselves up to new possibilities.

Think of it as getting rid of the old to make room for something new and exciting.  

Too many times we hold on to jobs, hobbies or people for far too long; it distracts us from walking through the doors that God opened for us.  

Save For Later


In the end, letting go is never easy, but it is essential for our personal growth and freedom. 

When we trust in God’s guidance and pray for discernment, we can release control and find comfort in His presence. 

As you navigate the path ahead, remember to lean on your faith, and trust that God has a plan for your life. 

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

Psalm 32:8
