Todays’ theme of the Parach is “Let it Go and Let God in”. This parach discussed on July 10, 2019, amongst Pastor Donota, Layton and Praise Peterson. The scripture for today is Matthew: 6:19-21. It says “Do not store up for your selves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for your selves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”.
This scripture talks about how an individual should let go things that are existing on Earth since they all remain negligible and unimportant to each one of us. The treasures for each believer remain in God and reside in him and him alone. The treasures of the Lord are forever and promising, while the riches and wealth stored on Earth is rotten by moths and insects. The theme of the Parach is well connected to this scripture in a way telling that we have to let go of the past hurts, past words and past actions that only worsen our situation in the present. The past only implies something that is over and has no use in life except to teach and enable us to think that there is a new action beginning, to have its progress.
As a believer of God, we should start giving our past things and events that are hurting us and pulling us down in the hands of the Lord because he is a big God and a healer of things. What is beyond our control to solve could be possible only by God alone. One should stop having unholy alliances and interactions since the people around us have a great power in their words to speak on us and our lives. What is spoken on our lives matters the most since meditation on a constant thing brings healing and redemption over a person? When somebody lets go things of the past and find the boat empty; he/she should fill it with God’s presence by letting him in.
The action point is to let things of the past go and let God be allowed in any individual’s life who is willing to have his manifestation over his/her life. Romans: 8:18 says” I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Bearing this in mind, declaring goodness and God filled presence in our lives should be a new encounter and a good beginning for letting things go and letting God in.
