What Hinders You?

What is the biggest distraction between you and a deeper relationship with God?

What consumes your thought life?

Are you one to make "promises" to God and break them?

I am so sick and tired of anything competing for my affection with Christ. He is so much better than "whatever it is" that might hinder a closer connection with Him.

A hindrance may be as big as alcohol, pornography or overspending.

It may be as simple as gossip, laziness, food or television.

Oh, He is better.

Read this and meditate on its depth...

Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty and will lift up your face to God. You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows. What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. Job 22:26-28

You will find greater delight in Him. He hears your prayer.

Today I am making a decision.

A decision to go deeper. A decision to move closer to my God.

A decision to die.

To die to the thing or things that cause my growth to slow.

To die to anything that hinders my walk.

We are called to die. So we can live.

What is it today that needs to be put to death in you?

Pray about it. Make a decision.

And in the power of the Holy Spirit, you will fulfill your vows.

Are you in?
