Every obstacle is an opportunity for you to grow more like Christ


Jeremiah_29-11-1: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

Jeremiah_29-11-1: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

 

Jeremiah 29:11

 

 

Whole-heartedly following after God can be such an adventure! God doesn’t want you to live a mediocre life. He wants you to claim the wonderful promises He has given you… promises for a hope and a future.

 

Now, when you do choose to whole-heartedly follow the Lord, you will face battles in your life. You will face some opposition. But rest assured… with God’s help, you can overcome it!

 

The first opposition you may face when you follow after Christ is the opposition thrown at you by your friends. They may tell you, “You can’t do it” or “It’s not worth it.” Some friends might even doubt you. But some friends will stand with you, which is why it is so important to choose your friends wisely.

 

Time is another obstacle to overcome when following after God. It can be so hard waiting on the Lord, but you have to remember that His timing is perfect.

 

Isaiah_40-31: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint

Isaiah_40-31: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint

God could be delaying the delivery of His promise to you in order to strengthen and grow your faith and commitment to Him. He knows when you will be ready! Isaiah 40:31 is a great reminder of the strength that comes in waiting on the Lord: “But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

 

It’s my prayer you will decide today to follow whole-heartedly after God. And as you do, remember that every obstacle is an opportunity for you to grow more like Christ. And remember that if you keep your eyes focused on the promises and purposes that God has for your life, you can overcome anything through Him!

 

EVERY OBSTACLE YOU FACE AS A CHRISTIAN IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO GROW MORE LIKE CHRIST.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

 

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
