About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him;
let him put his mouth in the dust—there may yet be hope…
Lamentations 3:26, 28-29 ESV
This was written by Jeremiah, who suffered incredibly for delivering the Word of God’s judgment to Israel. He was chained, beaten, lowered into a pit.
To be still and wait in the midst of suffering is a great challenge to an anguished soul. He learned how come through to the place of…’let be.’
To let go and lower yourself to sit and wait until God comes is absolute surrender that yields unimaginable peace and hope, the exquisite gift of God.
