What Can Hinder Our Fellowship with God?

    Sin breaks our fellowship with God, because sin is the opposite of who God is! So, we MUST begin to deal with the issues of sin in our lives! Heb12:1 says, “Let us lay aside every weight and sin that doth so easily beset us and let us race the race that is set before us.”

    Weights will weigh you down and hold you back! Weights will prevent us from being all that the Father has ordained for us to be! To beset mean - it’s hemming you in! It’s tripping you up over and over! So, how can we know when a a certain sin or lifestlye has beset us? It’s pretty easy!

    What is it in your life, that you find yourself repenting to the Father over and over again and you still have not stopped doing it yet? What is it, that the Father has revealed to you, that is displeasing in your life and you still have not dealt with it yet? It’s hemming you in! It’s tripping you up over and over again!

    You see, the Father does not expect us to be perfect, but He does expect us to open and honest in our relationship with Him. He expects us to stop procrastinating with sin in our live and stop trying to hide the sin! After all, there is NOTHING that He ever created that has been hidden from His sight! He sees all! Hears all! And He knows all! He wants us to voluntarily open up our hearts to Him and allow Him to clean us up! 1 Jn 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” When we confess our sin, there MUST also be a turning away from that sin. When we confess our sin and forsake the sin, that is when our fellowship with the Father can be restored.

    Is there something in your life hindering your fellowship with the Father?
