Victory Over Obstacles

“Detour Ahead!”
“Road Construction – Bridge Out”
Is there anything more frustrating when you are on a trip than encountering some sort of detour? You have a schedule and plans, and the detour, the construction, the re-routing, the heavy traffic – you just know that you are going to be running late, and that all of your well-made plans will now be turned upside down and inside out.

I must confess, it is times like that when I tend to be more “in the flesh” than any other time! Patience in traffic situations is something that continually is my prayer need!

But, the reality is, there is no avoiding these obstacles in life. In so many places, at so many times, the unexpected comes up, and our anticipated activities are rearranged in a way we hadn’t expected. Traffic tie-ups are minor things. What if your obstacle is an unexpected illness? Or employment termination? These and so many other “obstacles” can and will come up in our lives. When they do arrive, do you fall apart – or do you have the victory?

In Isaiah 42:16 the Lord tells His people “And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.”

Even in unexpected ways, along paths we had not anticipated, the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us! He will design and use what we may have thought were obstacles to bring us exactly where and how He wants us!
Are you facing obstacles in your life?
