Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which easily beset us, let us run the race that is set before us with patience. Heb 12:2.

What then are these weights? because a great door and effectual is opened unto us but there are many adversaries.
The first weight is Anxiety, the bible said we should be anxious for nothing. Philippians chapter 4 vs. 6. The greatest thief of our blessing is not the devil but Anxiety. Being apprehensive has cost us more than we can imagine. When you worry, your blessings wash out. Anxiety is essentially a demonstration of lack of faith. Wait, your blessing is on the way. Anxiety delays your testimonies. So until the Anxiety question is dealt with you are no candidate for the manifestations of the blessings of God. Do not think too much about it. Some one has promised you a favour and you can’t sleep. It stands as a BARRIER between you and that favour. So watch it, you have waited long enough. God is answering you speedily. I curse the ravaging tendencies of Anxiety in Jesus name. Stand still and see the salvation of God. Be still, be without worries, be anxious for nothing, and don’t worry for anything, rather praise God for everything.

Another weight is trusting in man or the circumstance. Jeremiah 17 vs. 5-7 points out the blessings of trusting in God and the curses of putting your hope in man.Even as God uses man. He wants to be seen as the only source. The moment you look at the channel as the source, the blessing stops flowing. God is the source every man is a channel. When the source commands a channel to bless you the channel must comply or will loose supply. Remove your trust from men. They will always fail. Your trust in man is one of the reason for you lack and thirst. Learn to trust God. He can do the impossible, surmount the insurmountable. God will never share His glory with any one. I uplift every consequence you have experienced or experiencing as a result of trusting in men. Vain is the help from men. God is our very present help in times of trouble psalms 46 vs. 1. He is the everlasting helper.

Finally, the third weight that causes delay is carrying about a sad heart. Most people have happy faces but carry about a sad heart.Your heart is what God sees. Until your heart is right you are not the right candidate for the blessings.

I pray that God should give you another heart like He did for Saul and cause all pending blessings to come to you, this same day. 1st Samuel 10:1-10. This is your day.

I know you already have testimonies knocking at your door. Open it in Jesus Name. Amen.
