In staff devotions today, we were reminded to “Let Go”. When we go through challenges and unknowns, it’s tempting to hold on tight and try to steer the ship ourselves. Psalm 46 reminds us to let go. Let go of the reigns and the control. God is working all things out according to his purposes and His will. We still need to be good stewards, but ultimately need to let go and be still. Listen to His voice. He will make known the path in His time.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. ~Psalm 46:10-11
