The person who reaches his or her goal or achieves anything has learned to confront and overcome their obstacles. Nothing comes easy no matter what career you have pursued. The obstacle may be health problems, handicaps, finances, opposition from others, overwhelming odds against you, etc.
Life is full of obstacles and hindrances, it is important that we honestly confront and remove any hindrances in our own personal life first. If there are matters we need to get right with God or others, we should do. God will bless such efforts and attitudes.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13
” 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.” Hebrews 12:1
If you want to be distressed – look within.
If you want to be defeated – look back.
If you want to be distracted – look around.
If you want to be dismayed – look ahead.
If you want to be delivered – look up!
We can achieve what God wants in our lives with His help, but we must confront and remove the obstacles in our own personal lives first.
