Let the baggage go!

Sunshine’s Reflections

Good afternoon!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  I am praying for the country during the government shutdown.  Remember God is still in control.

TFTD: Let the baggage go!

Attention Children of God: 

You have been called to a higher level, but you can’t get there if you are carrying unnecessary stuff.  Picture a hot air balloon, it was designed to float in the air and depending on the size of the balloon it has a limit to how much weight it can carry.  Now imagine someone placing bricks in the basket of the hot air balloon.  When the operator goes to light the flame that fuels the balloon to fly higher it will not move.  There is too much stuff weighing it down.  The weight restrictions have been ignored and the hot air balloon is ineffective.

Much like the hot air balloon, you have restrictions on how much “JUNK” you can carry.  It’s time to let the baggage go so you can fly high!  Jesus wants to fill your life with purpose but some of you are too busy trying to carry drama, unnecessary people and man-made things with you.  Let the baggage go!  You are trying to carry people who are weighing you down and making you ineffective in the kingdom.

Stop trying to save people who aren’t assigned to you!  When you take on people’s burdens when God hasn’t released you or equipped you to help them then they become baggage.  I know you had good intentions and you are trying to help, but God didn’t tell you to help.  Now this person has become a distraction, a burden and a form of baggage.  Every time you try to go higher this weight keeps pulling you down.  I encourage you to seek God and learn to LET THE BAGGAGE GO!!!

What do you have to let go of today?  Take a moment to look at how much baggage you are carrying and ask God to help you get rid of it.  It’s time to fly high and in order to go higher, you must LET GO and LET GOD!


Have a blessed day.
