Beyond the Obstacles

Genesis 1:9-10 says “And God said ‘let the water under the sky be gathered to one place and let dry ground appear’ and it was so and God called the dry ground land.”

Whenever God gives you vision and inspiration, He also gives you new opportunities and new possibilities, but you have to look for them.  It is my prayer that God will give us spiritual eyes to see those new possibilities and those new opportunities, and that we will be in tune to it. Many times huge possibilities and opportunities come our way, but we are not looking for it. We don’t really see it because, sometimes, those possibilities are disguised as problems.

You see, when God created the earth, He created mountains and valleys, deserts and oceans. Sometimes, the land, the opportunity that God gives us, comes in the form of a mountain, an obstacle, or a desert. We all experience really dry times in our lives where the heat and the pressure are on, and we don’t see it as an opportunity or possibility at all. You see, there are new possibilities disguised as new problems and until I have spiritual eyes to see it, I’ll never move into that place of blessing that God has for me. Most of the time, it’s the very problem I face that becomes the bridge that God wants to use to take me into the place of blessing.
