Lay Aside Those Things That Hinder Your Progress

“Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12:1).

We all need to acknowledge that something could be hindering our walk and therefore, needs to be laid aside. You could be holding on to something that’s keeping you from the good works that you are supposed to walk in. Whatever it may be, put it aside, walk away from it, turn away from it and make it right between you and God. That’s easily said than done, and so we must depend on the Holy Spirit to help us deal with it.

Lay aside those things that impede and hinder your progress in walking in the will of God, and His timing and pace. Anything that gets your attention and diverts your course is a hindrance – ‘the sin that so easily entangles us’. What does the Bible mean by that? It may be a weakness such as doubt, finances, lust or whatever it might be. Something you keep struggling with. Something you know to be deliberate willful choices of disobedience to God. Make it your choice to lay them aside.
