This is what you get when you are Salt to the Earth and Light to your World (Matthew 5:13-16)

“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…” (Hebrews 12:1 NKJV)
In life, it’s inevitable that you meet with hindrances, cogs in the wheels of your progress – inhibitions that makes you stop! And I am saying today: LET GO OF WHATEVER MAKES YOU STOP!
The J. B. Phillips translation of the New Testament puts the above scripture this way: “Surrounded then as we are by these serried ranks of witnesses, let us strip off everything that hinders us, as well as the sin which dogs our feet…”
Let go of whatever makes you stop! Strip it off. Now!
Inhibitions are weights, snares, hindrances to fulfilling our divine destiny, don’t give it room! Destroy your inhibitions!
Some relationships will ground you, get out of it!
Some habit(s) will frustrate your purpose, let go of it (them)!
Hatred, resentment, unforgiveness (call it by whatever name), is a sinker. Don’t let it sink you!
Sin sinks! I repeat: Sin is a sinker! Don’t allow it. Only fools make a mockery of sin! (Proverbs 14:9) Sin sunk Samson! It sunk Gehazi. It killed Achan. Run for your life!
Procrastination is a habit which easily besets us all. You please yourself temporarily at the expense of achieving your goals. The truth is, as Christopher Parker said, “Procrastination is like a credit card, it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill.” Let go of it!
Attempting to do more all in a bid to please some other people at the expense of your core purpose in life will not get you far. Stop it! I may not know the formula for success but the simplest way to be a failure is to try to please everybody!
Or you try to please people at the expense of God? Trying to fulfill the expectations of men without recourse to God’s demands over your life? Let go of that too, now! I may not know the secret of failure but one sure way is to try not to offend anybody!
Let go of whatever makes you stop!
So, what other things do you know that can hinder us that we need to let go of? Please share. YOU WILL SUCCEED!
Do not believe the lie of the enemy. You can do whatever it is that God has dropped in your mind to do. You can achieve that goal. You can fulfill that dream. You can and you will. I believe God with you today, that your dreams are coming to pass. I just feel like encouraging someone with this this morning. Yes, YOU CAN! For you can do all things through Christ that gives you strength! (See Phillipians 4:13) Have a great good morning! YOU WILL SUCCEED!
