As I jumped in the car Wednesday morning my phone synced up to my radio and Cory Asbury began singing the song ”Reckless Love.”
On cue, I cleared my throat and chimed in with Cory the first line of the song, “Before I spoke a word...” and almost immediately, Father whispered to my heart, “Don’t sing Brooke, let Me sing this one to you.”
It was so clear, so real, and after I got over the initial shock, I stopped singing and yielded to His song as I let Him finish that first line: “...You were singing over me.”
I had to continually yield to His voice the entire six minute song because I wanted to sing along with Him. It took such discipline to LET HIM sing over me; more discipline than I imagined.

Let me rewind this story a bit...
So about two weeks ago, I came across this teaching called INHERITANCE WORDS. Now Inheritance words are usually passages of Scripture that God highlights and asked you to meditate on for long periods of time. According to Graham Cooke in his book CRAFTED PRAYER, “As a son or daughter of the Almighty, you have an inheritance, and God wants you to know what it is. Jesus himself after spending 40 days and 40 nights being tested in the wilderness (see Luke 4), returned to civilization and went straight to a synagogue. He open the Scriptures to Isaiah 61 and proclaimed it as His Inheritance.”

This so intrigued me that I began my own quest.
“I want to know my Inheritance Word Father. What are you highlighting to me for this season of my life?”

I’ve been studying from The Passion Translation, which I HIGHLY recommend, and while I have loved every book from this translation, one has been my favorite!
Song of Songs (or Song of Solomon)
I had just spent several weeks in this book allowing the Fathers love to wash over me in this beautiful story of our Saviors love.
While I plan on spending the next season of my life in this entire book, He has highlighted two words to me for now. Two words?! That’s it!?! That’s my Inheritance Word?
I was looking for something deep and rich, maybe a long passage that I would have to dissect piece by piece...but...two words?!? Really Father?

It comes from the second verse of the first chapter:
“Let Him...”
The commentary says this:
To enter the doorway of Jesus‘ heart we must begin by saying, “Let him.” We only bring him a yielded heart and must “let him” do the rest. God‘s loving grace means that he will be enough for us. We can “let him” be everything to us. We don’t begin by doing but by yielding.”

“Let Him” sounds easy, right? I thought so too until I realized I had a hard time sitting still and being the object of His affection for a six minute song. I had to let Him delight in me. I had to let him love every part of me (even the parts I don’t love about myself). I sat there for six minutes as He reminded me, “There’s no shadow He won’t light up, mountain He won’t climb up coming after me. There’s no wall He won’t kick down, lie He won’t tear down coming after me.”

Will you join me in a new season of learning this new depth of surrender as we “Let Him.” Let Him do whatever He wants in us, whatever He wants through us, and whatever He wants for us?
Let Him love every hurt away.
Let Him surround you with His song.
Let Him have every part of your life.
Just let Him.
