What are you Carrying?




What are your “cars”? What do you carry around that holds you back? Consumes you? Can bring you harm?

Hebrews 12:1-2 …let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. (emphasis mine)

What has God been telling you to put down so you can run your race with perseverance and fix your eyes on Him? Are you putting them down sometimes but only when you can still see and control them?

If you don’t know what it is, ask God to reveal them to you. He knows us much better than we know ourselves.

Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, God, and know my heart: test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Begin to be aware of these things and how they can affect you and your walk. Whether it’s sin or just a weight, practice handing it over to God by declaring it through prayer. Speak it everytime it tries to take hold. If it’s a tangible thing, ask for the strength and wisdom to distance yourself from it.
