To lift your lids, you must first identify them. Next, make a plan for lifting them.
- Make a list of the external and internal factors that undermine your success.
- Select two or three to address.
- Make a plan.
Each of us has personal lids, things that undermine our success.
It’s like being in a container with a tight lid. Examples include:
- External: inexperience, lack of support from others, people who dislike you
- Internal: fear, impatience, anger, jealousy, denial
The issue is not whether you have lids.
Notice in Revelation 15:6 how the angels are clothed. They wear pure white linen and golden bands. White linen is a symbol of holiness and purity (Psa 51:7, Isa 1:18, Luke 9:29). Gold purged of impurities is a symbol of righteousness (Mal 3:3).
