Dear reader, are you facing formidable challenges in front of your eyes and are they causing you to retreat out of fear and anxiety? Do these obstacles control your thoughts and make you imagine out the dire and dangerous consequences of going forward? Is ‘reason’ walking before ‘faith’ in your sojourn? But you are commanded to walk not by sight but by faith and trust in the Almighty who walks with you. If you look to the future through the Lord who is with you, it would be possible to see the bright future instead of failure. The negative possibilities might be reasonable according to the world’s yardsticks, but if you step out in faith, these obstructions will give way. When the roadblocks see the Lord coming forward with you, do you think it would stand straight and face the Lord? No, it would not show the tenacity to stick to its position, but will flee away. It took only one small stone to smite one Goliath. One step was sufficient to make the Read Sea to retreat. One word was adequate to stop the wind, waves and the storm in the sea. One word or a touch was all that it took to raise the dead, give sight to the blind and make the lame walk. When the Lord Jesus came near the demon-possessed people, the demons fled away. When we walk forward with the Lord, mountains and seas will withdraw from our pathways, walls will crumble, Satan will flee, germs will depart, storms will stop, boats will travel several times its normal speed, deserts will flood with drinking water, powerful empires and rulers will disappear and prison gates will open wide. When our Lord travels with us, we can face any obstacles and move forward to enjoy greater spiritual blessings that are promised. Let us today put all our faith in Him and enjoy His greater blessings in spite of all hindrances.
Numbers 14:9 –Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them. Thought for Today If we look into the future through Jesus, even if there are giants, we will only see victory.
