When the Hebrews led by Moses came to the Red Sea, it seemed like the end. What to them was an obstacle, to God was a gateway.
But they had to go through their perceived obstacle to get to the blessing. So must we.
When we're in Christ there are no obstacles, only opportunities. It just depends upon how we look at things. What to us is a dead end to what was good, to God is a gateway to what is better.
Frustrated? Beaten up by people you only wanted to serve? Betrayed by someone you trusted and helped only to be burned in return? Want to give up? Don’t.
What to you may appear an impossibility is God’s possibility.
Sometimes He sends us through, other times around and at other times over.
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end, may also be only the beginning.
- Ivy Baker Priest
But one thing is certain, as long as the world is round, God by way of the Holy Spirit, will lead us through it, around it and over it to get us to the place where He has purposed us to be.
Only by our consent or with our permission can anyone stop what God has spoken over our life.
Be encouraged. God knows the way you should take - even if that way to you seems like a dead end.
Claim this promise and watch what God will do!: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." – Proverbs 3:5-6
