I was able to attend a local event; a men's conference that was useful to me, so I will share a little with you. To continue in our journey we must realize and remove things that block our way.
Gal 5:7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
Some of the things that block our progress are: the world and the news, discouragement, unbelief, things from the world, vain imaginations, weight and stress, afflictions and past hurts.
We are to cast these things down and follow the Lord.
Php 2:16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
We are to choose life and serve the true LORD God.
We are to keep our eyes upon Jesus
We are to commit ourselves to God
We are to be consistent, not quitters.
YOU DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO SAY NO WHEN GOD SAYS YES.
Expose the secret dark things that hinder you. Shine the light of truth on them.
Finally make a list of all the things that have hindered your spiritual life, past hurts, rejection...name them all and write them down on a piece of paper. At the men's meeting we each one nailed our hindrances written on paper to a wood cross. You can just throw your list in the trash or burn them. Recognize your hindrances and put them away.
John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
