What obstacles are in your life today?
What is hindering you or holding you back?
Don’t be frustrated by them, see them as opportunities for the Lord to prove Himself powerful.
Oswald Chambers said it like this:
“A river is victoriously persistent, it overcomes all barriers.
For awhile it goes steadily on its course, then it comes to an obstacle and for awhile it is balked but it soon makes a pathway round the obstacle…
You can see God using some lives, but into your life an obstacle has come and you do not seem to be of any use.
Keep paying attention to the Source and God will either take you round it or remove it…
Never get your eyes on the obstacle or on the difficulty…”
~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest
“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith…” Hebrews 12:2
Are you weary in serving today?
Has the week been hard and the obstacles steep?
Don’t be discouraged. Just focus on your relationship with the Lord, and He has promised to take care of the rest.
Oswald Chambers put it well:
“You never can measure what God will do through you if you are rightly related to Jesus Christ.
Keep your relationship right with Him, then whatever circumstances you are in, and whoever you meet day by day, He is pouring rivers of living water through you, and it is of His mercy that He does not let you know it…
It is the work that God does through us that counts, not what we do for Him.”

John 15:5 “…He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit, for without me you can do nothing…”
