What is holding you back from God?

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 May 2024

Isaiah 49:16
‘See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…’

There are many things that hinder us from going for God. Things that get in the way.  Things that want to trip us up or hold us back. Anything that slows down our spiritual progress, or that makes spiritual progress difficult is a hindrance. If we can know what these things are and can recognise them as such we can overcome.  The devil would like to destroy us and stop us from going for God.  We must not let this happen!
We need to be aware that things could be holding us back and blocking us from all that God has for us. Look out for things that make progress slow or difficult. Look out for things that hold you back.  Anything that hinders or blocks our going for God needs to be dealt a ruthless blow.   We must allow nothing to interfere with our pursuit of God.  We must not allow things that would clog or obstruct our progress with God.
