The world will provide many ways to disconnect from God. Barriers are an ever-present way that keep us from attaining a stronger relationship with Christ. Let’s overcome these barriers together… as a body of believers fighting for a a relationship that is genuine and built out of love.
Finding joy in times of barriers...
When you are stuck and don't know what decision to make, or which way to turn, the apostle Paul reminds us to pray for discernment. Our situations are all due to grace. Every blessing is because of grace and every trial is covered in grace. Seek God first and ask for discernment in your times.
Trying hard is not always the answer to overcome your barriers. Another way to break through is to humble yourself. Humility opens up the door to surrendering the barrier to Christ.
You can't experience true joy until Christ gets a hold of your heart. Following the rules of life is not what will get you to heaven. Position yourself at the foot of the cross and learn to love and follow Christ in every situation to overcome the barriers to your successful life.
Verses: Phillipians 3
When we attempt to conquer difficulties and situations on our own, we can get stuck very easily. We allow our mind to get in our own way. Paul reminds us in Philippians 4 that changing our mindset to Christ can relive stress and allow us to put God in control of our life.
