Throw Off That Weight: Focus On Jesus

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)

What are the weights, the burdens of your heart that has your heart heavy? Those issues that constantly bombards your mind. You pray and pray and nothing answered yet. You are not meant to carry burdens that are not yours to carry. “Praise the Lord who daily bears our burdens.” (Psalm 68:19)

You need to get your focus back on Jesus. The issues that weigh your heart down and have caused you to lose your peace, joy and rest have caused you to lose focus. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race set out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” (Hebrews 12:1-3)

That is exactly what the enemy wants; he wants to bombard you with so many issues you take your eyes off Jesus. He and His will should be your main focus, knowing as in Matthew 6:33, when you put Him first, He will take care of everything else.

Stop playing tug-of-war with Him, repent of sin and give it over to the Lord along with your worries in faith and get you peace and joy back! Throw off that weight!

Your heart will feel light and free and full of His peace.

“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”

Isaiah 26:3
