Jesus is famous for saying just that. You can abandon yourself to God, who is present. “Let go and let God” is an old and wise saying—unfortunately more widely said than practiced. Daniel’s three friends, facing death in a “fiery furnace,” were commanded to bow to the image set up by King Nebuchadnezzar. Their response to the king was that they did not even need to think about it (Dan. 3:16–18). Their God would or would not deliver them, but in either case all was well. They would not bow. Jesus announced in the Beatitudes that even the most deprived and insignificant people on earth could be blessed by living in the kingdom: the poor, those who were grief-stricken, those without reputation or standing (the meek), and so forth.
