Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
When we look at a right of way it’s filled with the transmission lines going to various parts of the country. It is breath taking to know that each line feeds a substation, which in turn feeds cities and states. This can only happen when we clear enough right of ways for the pole structures to be installed, without the interference of trees and other obstacles. The finished product is strong structures, conductors properly sagged, and the proper clearance.
God wants us to clear the right of way in our lives, to allow God’s power in our life without interruptions. It is only then that we can minister to others of Christ’s love in our life by example.
If we allow things in our lives that are unpleasing to God, the power of God is restricted from flowing freely. Just as we keep the trees out of the right of way for transmission and distribution lines, we must keep sin out of our life to let God work through us.
Lord, let us lay aside everything in our lives that hinders me from hearing from you. Let me run the race of life with your help and guidance. Let me always look unto you, for you are my Lord and Saviour. My faith is in you, Lord, and not in myself. Let me clean the right of way of my soul, to allow your power to flow through me.
