Remove Anything That Slows You Down

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, 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).

Anything that hinders, impedes, slows us down, or gets us out of the will of God may have to be removed. We have to look in our own lives and say, ‘what is it in my lifestyle that hinders me or keeps me away from focusing on my God given goal’? Or ‘what is it that hinders me from following His will or allowing Him to work His way in my life’? We all have to examine ourselves and lay aside the sin that ensnares us. Sometimes it’s not easy to identify. We may have some habits in our lives that have been there for years, and we may think, that’s just the way I am, but it may be retarding your spiritual walk.

Sometimes it could be just a little doubt that lingers on in our lives. We may think does God even care or have a plan for my life. We sometimes make decisions and ask God to bless us, but do we ask the mind of God before we make those decisions? We must examine ourselves to see what’s hindering us. Then, we must decide to deal with it and thank the Lord for showing us those things. It may not even be deliberate known willful sin, but endeavour to remove anything that slows you down.
