Lay Aside Every Weight!
As I was listening in church on Sunday morning to the message, I saw a vision of the head.
A man was emptying himself of excess stuff he carried around, digging even down into his pockets, emptying all the weight upon his person and as he became lighter and lighter, his whole countenance changed.
What is it that keeps hindering you, from living a life of obedience?
Do you struggle with a particular sin, habit, attitude, or fear that keeps you from running your race of faith the way you ought?
If so, you probably already know what it is, and I’d guess that you’ve already prayed, prayed, and prayed for victory in overcoming that problem because you really do want to please God.
Every now and then, we all tolerate things in our lives that make it difficult for us to please God. And when we know we’re not pleasing God, we typically aren’t happy with ourselves either.
This is one reason that Hebrews 12:1 tells us to “…lay aside every weight….”
Removing wrong attitudes and actions from our lives will not occur accidentally. We must decide to change — to remove, to lay aside, and to put away attitudes and actions that don’t please God and adversely affect our walk of faith.
The Holy Spirit is urging you and I to take a good look at our lives and then remove everything that weighs us down and keeps us from a life of obedience.
We must be honest with ourselves and with God.
Even Before You Cry…..
When and even before you cry, The LORD says, “I hear you! At that moment, I AM with you always, silent for just a moment but always here.
By faith you will receive insight, and even greater insight as you seek Me with all of your hearts, My Spirit joining with your spirit revealing signs, wonders and miracles.
KNOW that you are the children of the Most High God, The Great, “I AM.”
I never leave you nor forsake you! My grace is sufficient for you. Be still, gentle and quiet.
I AM watching and covering you, sending angels to minister to your hungry and yearning hearts.
I hear the cry, I hear the heart beat of My own calling, and calling says the LORD. I come quickly!”
Amen and Amen!
