Obstacles

Obstacles.

Let me tell you, on any given day you may feel like a contestant on American Ninja Warrior. Random obstacles [and not so random obstacles] will come at you so fast it leaves you out of breath and out of time.

God will help us navigate through life’s most intense terrain; however, we have to be a willing participant. We cannot mumble side-tracked, unfocused prayers and then get upset when OUR GPS leads us to a roadblock. We’ve got to put in the work to get to where we need to be – no matter how hard or intense that may look. No matter how many times we want to turn back.

These obstacles {barriers} aren’t going anywhere. There will always be something between us and our dreams. There will always be something trying to stop us.

But if God says walk – if God says go – and if we do just that – Get ready. He will make a way.

Just like when God parted the Red Sea – talk about one major obstacle – He will help us get through, over, under, or around whatever is trying to hinder our ability to be successful on the path that God has set before us.

If we go.

If we get up.

If we believe.

If we put in the work.

If we exercise our faith.

If we stick it out.

If we don’t turn back.

Who’s winning your battle today? Your obstacle or Your God?

“17 When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near. For God said, “Lest the people change their minds when they see war and return to Egypt.” 18 But God led the people around by the way of the wilderness toward the Red Sea. And the people of Israel went up out of the land of Egypt equipped for battle.” Exodus 13:17-18 (ESV)

“13 And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. 14 The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:13-14 (ESV)
