SylviaWe are selfish by nature.

Nobody had to teach us to want things our way. When someone doesn't do things our way, we try to change them, to make them conform to what we believe is right and best. We may feel that someone is heading in the wrong direction, and we want to get him or her on the track we believe to be right. We may call it concern, but it really may be selfishness and control. No matter how right we may be, we are wrong to try to control others and make them conform to our desires, even our godly desires. It is God's job to change people, not ours. Be careful of trying to control others. Give them to God so He can accomplish His perfect will in their lives.

Make this declaration of release as often as necessary.

Because Jesus Christ is my Lord, I free you from my anxiety, fears, and control.

I trust the Holy Spirit to lead you and show you the way that is right for you, the way of love, joy, and peace and all that salvation includes.

I place you at God's throne of grace. I cannot force my will on you. 

I cannot live your life for you. I give you to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are a very special person. As much as I love you, God loves you more. 

Your life today is totally in His hands, and I trust Him with it.

In Jesus' name...

I release you from my expectations,

I place you on open palms to the Lord. I give you my blessings.

I let you go.

In His love,

It is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose. Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Phi 2:13, 1:6).
