My husband and I had a conversation as touching broiler chicks eating and playing under open heavens, in the course of the conversation I said to him ‘What if the big birds of the air pick the broilers while they are under open heavens?’ He explained to me that with the weight of the broiler, it’d be hard for it to carry them and that if it does he won’t be able to go far because for it to fly high, it must ensure that it’s light.
An intense light came from that conversation and I likened to our walk with Jesus, if we must go far in Him we must lay aside every extra weight that can pull us down or hold us back. Weights like unforgiveness, bitterness, deceit and so many corrupt practices, everything that is not of Jesus.
This weights makes us lose focus in our walk so instead of focusing on Him, we find ourselves trying to battle with everything that doesn’t please Jesus.
God’s desire for us is that we’ll come to the full understanding that weights are sent to distract us on the journey.
You know how it is when carrying heavy baggages, the way it slows one down, that’s the way weight slows us down in our walk with God.
If Jesus had focused on everything everyone said while He journeyed to the cross, He probably might not have died for humanity again. Instead while stuffs were spoken against him, he responded with love asking the Father to forgive them and He let go immediately. One way to let go of weights is to stay in love with the Father and with people.
You probably have been wounded many times while journeying but hey turn your eyes upon Jesus.
See this scripture;
As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us. We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God! So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls, so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures.
Hebrews 12:1-3 TPT
