Kingdom life is a race

 (Fifth part) 

Memory verse (Heb12:1): " 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 "

You can never run with burdens. Athletes put on very light attire to enable them to be comfortable and light enough to win the race. In the spiritual race we are involved in, it is required that we put off the weights and the sins that easily ensnare us. This race needs freedom ie spiritual freedom, mental liberty and physical wholeness. The scripture interprets weights, burdens as anxieties, cares of life, worries, fears and life problems (Lk21:34-36, Matt13:22, Phil4:6-7). Jesus promised to give rest to all those who are heavy laden (Matt11:28). He is calling all who are weighed down by problems of Life, cares of life, and various burdens to come to him for rest. Peter put it this way, cast all your cares upon him for he cares for you. 

The Lord who cares about you has the ability to carry your cares for you. In  life we encounter many challenges, difficulties, pains, uncertainties, fears, lack, diseases, trials, etc. In all these issues of life we have a God who cares enough. He know all about our troubles. With man many things are impossible but with our God all things are possible. Paul teaches us the way we cast these cares to the Lord is through prayer, supplication and with thanksgiving (Phil4:6). May the Lord take away your heaviness and give you a garment of praise. These weights or burdens crush the heart, steal your joy and peace. These  heavy burdens drain our emotional strength and try to weaken our faith. But you don’t have to carry those burdens anymore, Jesus carried your sins in his body on the tree, he carried your diseases in his body and by his stripes your were healed, he took away your poverty. In redemption plan, everything that went wrong because of the fall was rectified by the death of Christ on the cross. There is every solution through the cross for you.        It is the power of God unto us who are saved (1 Cor1:18). It’s all provided by the grace of the Lord and you receive every answer by faith. Let us enter into the finished work of the Lord Jesus through the cross, let us inherit our victory, joy, peace, freedom, healing, prosperity etc. Don’t allow sin to have dominion on you. Walk in the liberty the Lord has given to you. And run the race to the finishing line.
