Throw Off All That Hinders You

Uncategorized 4 Comments

Hebrews 12: 1-3 tells us that we should throw off all that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles us.  This scripture is key for those of us who are truly seeking to make Heaven our home.  Imagine yourself in a race for God.  You are running but you have a heavy load on your back, you have obstacles that keep jumping in front of you that you are allowing to hinder your forward progress.  You can’t win a race that way.  You must throw off and get rid of that which hinders you from winning the race!  What is it that is hindering you right now?  Is it a person?  Is it a particular sin?  Is it your attitude?  Whatever it is, throw it off such that it doesn’t stand in your way anymore.  One of the toughest things for us to do is to let go of relationships with people we care about, but who are hindering us.    You really might have to let that person go.  Seek God’s Word and His Will.  Pray and ask God if it is His Will that the person be removed from your life or at least put aside as you strive to run for the Lord.  Doing this will not be easy, but sometimes you have to do something hard for the sake of your relationship with God.  Evaluate your life and what is hindering you from being all you can be for God and then as the scripture says…Throw It Off!!!
