“let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1, AMPC)
I remember a song we used to sing several years ago:
“If you can use anything, Lord, you can use me. Take my hands Lord and my feet. Touch my heart Lord, speak through me. If you can use anything Lord, you can use me.”
Beloved, we can overcome all the limits of life by taking on and exhibiting the power of the divine nature which God has made available through our Lord Jesus Christ and by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. God is looking for believers who will dedicate and consecrate themselves wholly and completely to Him, to carry out His plans for their lives, just as Jesus did. These believers are the ones who will overcome the limits of life and break through every barrier that life puts on their path. Why don’t you search your life today and get rid of every dead weight impeding your spiritual progress? You are going higher in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen!
Prayer: Lord, I present myself unto you. May your will be done in my life. I consecrate myself to your plans for me.
