“….let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.” Hebrews 12 1.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Isaiah 22-24 and Hebrews 12.
Get rid of the stuff that isn’t helpful!
I want to please God in everything that I do. Some things will interfere with that plan.
Think of the “important” things in your life. Things you do regularly. Things you’re known for doing.
Do any of them hinder You from pleasing God? Do you have to ask God for forgiveness after you do them?
These things must be ditched unless you can bring Him along and rightly represent Him doing them.
I try to pray before I go places. I want to rightly represent Him in those locations ahead. I’m not sure what will be going on. I’m not sure who will be there. That’s why I need His guidance.
I have been in places where I got a feeling that I didn’t belong. I suspect that there was some evil there that I needed to get away from or there was a need for me to be in another place.
I need to be totally aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence in me. I need to remember that He hears me. I need to know that He sees me. My agenda must ALWAYs keep this in mind. Truthfully, when I am mindful of Him, I do a better job of representing Him.
“Lord, reveal to me those things that are slowing me down spiritually. I want to run the race unencumbered. Help me, I beg.”
What’s holding us back from being all-in for Him?
