Release What You’re Holding – Pastor Jeremy Foster

God has something great for you but you have to be willing to release whatever it is that you’re holding on to. If you hold on to whatever it is for too long, it will hold you back. Some of us wear our issue on the outside and our issue has overtaken our identity. 

A lot of people think that you need to get your life right and on track before you can turn to God and tell him “Here I am, I finally have everything right and now you will love me”. BUT that’s not how it works. God wants you to come to Him FIRST –  addicted to drugs, alcohol, anger, hurt, life just totally out of control – He will take you however you are because He loves you. Once you accept God into your life and start to learn and understand who He is, the burdens you’ve been carrying will start to fall off. Not all at once, one at a time, slowly it will happen. You’re still going to go through storms in your life, it’s not going to be a bed of roses. But the storms you go through, God will be there with you to be by your side and guide you and hold you up when you just want to give up. Sometimes you’re going to take a few steps backwards but God will still be there pulling you forward saying “We got this together”. He will never give up on you and disown you. He’ll be dissapointed in you at times but that doesn’t mean he stops loving you and guiding you. He wants you to do good in life and make the right choices. And He will do whatever it takes to make sure you are taken care of. The burdens you carry aren’t yours anymore, they are His. Allow him to carry them for you so that you can keep moving forward.
