Breaking through the ceiling

Daily Thought

Your Word for 12 April 2024

Psalm 71:5
‘For You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.’

In life we are designed to know the closeness and the presence of God in our lives as a living reality.  We are meant to know the Lord as OUR Shepherd.  But then life happens and things happen that get in the way or cause a blockage.  Usually we are very aware of this. We know that things are not as they should be.
I have often heard people say that there is a ceiling that blocks their access to God. They tell me that they feel like their prayers are bouncing off the ceiling. It is a strange thought, but most of us have felt this way at some time.
It is all good and well when things are going well, but to feel like there is a ceiling, especially when things are not going well, is very tough. This season is characterized by dryness, wilderness, darkness, barrenness or distance. Things do get in the way, but God meant for these things to be removed so that we can break through those blockages.
