Let It Go

Jeremiah 15:19

“Therefore, thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah],
“If you repent [and give up this mistaken attitude of despair and self-pity], then I will restore you [to a state of inner peace]
So that you may stand before Me [as My obedient representative];
And if you separate the precious from the worthless [examining yourself and cleansing your heart from unwarranted doubt concerning My faithfulness],
You will become My spokesman.
Let the people turn to you [and learn to value My values]—
But you, you must not turn to them [with regard for their idolatry and wickedness].”

Isn’t it easier to just sit there and drown ourselves in self pity than actually work towards finding a solution?

Here we see God encouraging Jeremiah to let go of the attitude of self pity.

God doesn’t like when we whine because He knows it does us no good—it achieves absolutely nothing. Recall that there is power in the words you speak—so of what use is it to sit and continuously proclaim negative words like “it’s my fault,” “things will never change,” “I will never get accepted,” “oh well, I knew I wasn’t going to get it…I never do.” e.t.c. Stop the foolishness and talk some sense: I am worth it! I can do this! I am able!

He prefers, rather, that you use your words to change the situation because life and death lies in the power of the tongue. The stakes are high. He wants you to utter worthy words and speak into existence the changes you seek. Let your words be of positive influence to yourself and to those who listens.

Also, in times of suffering, God doesn’t want you to wallow in self pity, but to rejoice for being partakers and to trust Him fully without doubts—cleanse your heart from unwanted doubts about His faithfulness.

Let go of self-pity and return to trusting God.

  1. As parents or teachers, we tell children to “use your words” instead of whining. why then as adults do we so early forget that and do all manner of things to cope with hurt feelings. Pour out your heart to God, he made you, He understands you & He wants to hear from you. How many blessings have you left on the table because you ignored the tug of the Holy Spirit and was; allowed in your sled pity & made choices based on feeling rather than God’s plan?

    1. Wow. Barb, thank you for this. Really, it couldn’t have been said any better. That last question especially…
      leaves a lot to ponder on. I’m making a conscious effort to not only be led by mere feelings for they can be misleading. But, the Holy Spirit never misleads.
      Thanks for sharing that with us. What a great input!!
