Lifting the weight
When it’s time to lift weights, how high do you go with em?
Training for godliness (1 Tim. 4:8-10) is no small task. It’s quite the challenge – more so than physical accomplishments. The MSG version of this verse says: “Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever. You can count on this. Take it to heart. This is why we’ve thrown ourselves into this venture so totally.” Being weighted down with sadness, troubles or weariness is a heavy load! God knows what you can lift. Sometimes you have to raise something higher to remove, carry, or move it!!
I’m really not concerned with how much weight somebody can lift physically. I’m more interested to see if they can lift their hands to God in surrender, in reverence, in thankfulness, in repentance, in praise, and in faith…with passion and hope.
Get rid of the weight. Lift it up. Lift it high. Lift it off.
If you’ve never tried this type of lifting, I encourage you to start today and continue it regularly! Leave your email here for my upcoming video. And as always, thank you so much for visiting this site! I am happy to serve you with words of life and hope. It is God that provides us with encouraging truths and prophetic insights. Therefore, THIS is our season. declare “This is my season!” -Courtney
