Let Go And Take Hold

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Genesis 35:2

So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes.


The Lord wanted to do a new work in Jacob and his family. God told him to go to Bethel. Jacob immediately told his family and servants to get rid of all their idols and change their clothes.


Jacob’s family and servants obeyed his command. In effect, they were repenting of their sin inwardly. They then changed their clothes as an outward show of what God had done on the inside. They had to “Let Go And Grab Hold.” You may wonder what that means. If you want to go to a higher level in your faith, you will have to let go of what has been giving you false security to this point. Once you do, you can now grab hold of a fresh faith in Jesus. Indeed, Jesus will take you higher and farther than you ever dreamed. The Bible says that God put a fear in the hearts of all of Jacob’s adversaries. No one touched them on their way to the will of God. The same awaits all of us who are willing to, “Let Go And Grab Hold.”


Dear Jesus,

You and I know the things that seem to regularly threaten me from going deeper with You. Today, with Your help I want to “Let Go And Grab Hold!” Amen
