Drop Your Baggage

Drop Your Baggage

In I Sam. 10:22, it says “he has hidden himself among the baggage.”  Interesting verse, isn’t it?  We can hide behind a myriad of baggage.  It might be past hurts, bitterness, unforgiveness, fear, past failures, or low self-esteem.  We may even hide behind success, wealth, and accomplishments.

While we may put on a happy face and be the life of the party, God sees beyond the facade.  Ps. 139 tells us that our frame wasn’t hidden from Him when we were made, and His eyes saw us before our body even had a form.  He sees all of our baggage; He sees the depth of the fear, despair, and pain.  He sees every emotional scar we bear.

Our wonderful God is patiently waiting for us to drop all of our heavy baggage and trade it for an abundant life.  (John 10:10)  Won’t you let the Lord take your excess baggage so that you are no longer hidden among it?  Let the real you come shining through, bearing His image.

Drop your baggage at the foot of the cross.
