A story is told of a man who slipped off a mountain while on his routine daily walk. Desperately holding on to the edge of the cliff, paralyzed with fear, he begins to pray. God please help me, please send someone who can lift me up and save me.

Shortly after praying, someone appeared and reached down to lift the man up. But, the man gripped with fear, could not let go turning down the very help he prayed for.

Honestly look around. Who is the person, place or thing we can’t let go of that’s preventing us from receiving the very thing we pray for? Is it time to let go?
