Let Go! Let God Fill Your Need!
This article is one of the Unity Classics written by legendary leaders of Unity. Some date back decades, even a century. That’s why the language may seem a bit formal, and the writers sometimes used masculine nouns and pronouns that were considered proper for their era.
If you are anxious, tense, or concerned about anything in your life, dear friend, begin now to relax, let go, and let God fill your need.
How the Divine Presence in You Can Dissolve Every Fear and Doubt
No matter what seems to be missing from your life—be it a much-loved person, a special place, an activity of great value, or a feeling of well-being—know that God is right now filling your need.
Take a deep breath. Release it slowly, telling yourself quietly: I let go. I let God fill my need.
Finding the Peace Within
Accept the reality that God's wisdom is ever present and available, ready to fill you with new understanding, light, and life. Let God fill every void, every emptiness that seems to separate you from the desires of your heart. Let go! Let God fill your need!
God's light and substance and divine activity will move in and through you as you let go. God's creative process is awaiting your acceptance of its productive, healing action. Let your thoughts be lifted up. Let the presence of God dissolve your fears and doubts and remove every unbelief. Let go and let God within you do the work.
Begin now to relax from the strain and effort of questioning, planning, and reasoning.
Take a few moments throughout the day to calm your thinking and place all your attention upon the words: I let go. I let God fill my need.
Immediately, you will experience visible and tangible benefits, inside and out. You will feel renewed strength and faith and courage. Your prayers will be more effective, and your understanding of the presence of God within you will be clearer. You will find that God's love takes care of what you cannot accomplish. As you let go, God will freely and abundantly fill every need.
God always provides knowledge, guidance, understanding, faith, healing, supply, or anything else you need. Whatever your life experience appears to be, you have—at this very moment—an opportunity to let go of your personal striving and let God move in you and through you to fill your every need.
During the most critical point in the life of Jesus, when the minds and hearts of His disciples seemed totally depleted of courage and faith, their needs were filled. As the disciples viewed the amazing example of Jesus' quiet surrender, they learned of the miracle-working power of letting go and letting God. Their eyes and minds and hearts were opened to the message of abundant life, eternal life, and love for all humanity.
Whatever your life experience appears to be, you have—at this very moment—an opportunity to let go of your personal striving and let God move in you and through you to fill your every need.
God Always Fills Your Need
God's love and goodness will always fill every need in your circumstances, every hunger of your heart, every longing of your soul for peace and assurance, and every good desire for the expression of eternal life and well-being.
Although it may sometimes seem you are separated from that which has been your greatest avenue of comfort, security, or supply, remember: God always fills your need. No matter how great the gulf seems between you and the solution to your deepest desire, you can trust God.
Tell yourself again and again, as often as you need to do so: I let go. I let God fill my need.
