Don't Get Bogged Down

Posted on February 10, 2019 at 7:45 AM
In the last blog, we discussed Moving Forward and the unknown. What is so interesting about Moving Forward to the unknown is that there has to be a purpose and destination that God has for us. The moment that we turn our lives over to Christ Jesus and move toward our purpose and destiny is the moment that the enemy attacks and places obstacles and setbacks in our lives. Sometimes it may feel like every step we make then something tries to push us back two steps.

What I have learned over my life and walk with God is that regardless of the situation, we have to keep moving. We have to persevere through it all. Setbacks should not dictate our lives. Setbacks should not stop us living our abundant life. Setbacks should not send us into depression. Our lives mean more than whatever the setback is in our life. Don’t fall into the woe is me mentality.

God has a purpose for our lives. In that purpose, the promise is also there. The promise of joy. The promise of success. The promise of an abundant life. So, when obstacles arrive, we should not get discourage but understand they won’t stop our momentum. We may ask ourselves if we have what it takes to not get bogged down with the issues of life. The answer is yes.  In I John 5:4-5 (NKJV) For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world —our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. So, because we are believers and followers of Christ Jesus, there is no obstacle that we can’t overcome. Why? Because Jesus already overcame the world and has given us the tools to stay focus and keep moving through our faith, trust, and hard work.

So, Let’s not get bogged down with issues or setbacks in our lives and keep moving forward in our purpose. God has blessed us and we can’t allow outside forces to allow us to forget it.
