There are multiple hindrance that are stacked & brimming with negatives
against God in this world—
There’s our sin.
There’s our weaknesses
There’s are flaws & failures
There’s the world’s brokenness,
There’s every evil power—
But none of this can stop the incredible force of God’s love from advancing
in our lives & to others lives everywhere in this world.
God will be honored all over the world.
He guarantees that there are people that worship Him all over the world,
He will always be honored & He will always have faithful ones bringing
their best to Him.
God is great
God’s name “will be great among the nations”—
And it’s not because he removes all the hindrances
we can see hindrances everywhere & from those
we didn’t expect would attack us,
There’s not a single obstacle strong enough though to impede Gods purposes
There’s not a single hindrance that can interfere with Gods design
Others are always watching us
They watch when we’re having hard times,
They watch when we’re beaten up by life experiences
They keep track of our imperfections & shortcomings
Paul was jailed, he was beat up by mobs; he worked hard, he worked late,
But in all the hindrances the apostles went through
God showed His power in the hindrances & the frustrations
We know we’re doing something right when we’re blamed & slandered,
We can be distrusted;
We can be ignored
But this is not a hindrance to Gods power.
We actually, through these odd rejections,
are being recognized by God;
Just because we stumble or blunder does not mean our motives & intent
can’t be brought to God in prayer to work greatly through our brokenness
These weird tests, if we turn to our Father, can be indicators
that we’re terrifically alive in Christ as our all,
We can feel our sorrow, yet be filled with Jesus deep joy;
We don’t get wiped out by roadblocks,
We don’t stay in the dumps in the face of human barricades & caustic ridicule.
We can feel broken in our lives. But the reality is this can open us up to
live an exchanged life into Gods powerful life giving miracles
through our dependent prayer.
David’s final prayer was
Let the whole earth be filled with His glory; Amen & Amen Psalm 72:19
Then David wrote
The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
This is all we want. This is our greatest end. Gods glory. Not our will but His will.
