Stones of distraction!
Verse for Today: Sunday, January 27, 2013
Psalms 91:12 – (His angels) will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
God has His special protection force to look after His precious children. We dwell in God’s magnificent presence all the time to enjoy the safety and security He provides. God’s Spirit dwells in us to guide and lead all the time. God Himself is the keeper of all His children. But angels are also appointed to look after us lest we get into danger. As we progress on our sojourn, there are times when we come across stones of obstruction, distraction and intimidation which tempt us to take detours. When we see stones of difficult circumstances and situations, we tend to detract and run back or go sideways. Some stones of situations make us afraid of the way. But we must understand that these stones are brought to our way by the enemy of our souls to create confusion and discouragement. At that time, God comes to tell us that these stones are not the end of the way for us. God has more distance for us to tread. He has made ample provisions for us to march forward. As we come across these stones which try to hinder us, God gives us His mighty power to overcome it by faith. He fills our eyes with His glory all through our pathway so that we would not need to be burdened about the stones of intimidation and threat. When we look through the glory of the Lord, we would not even see these stones. At the right time, the angels of the Lord will come to pick us up and place us on the other side of the stones so that we can continue with our walk of faith. At other times, the angels will remove the stones to clear our pathways. When we live under the shadow of the Almighty, the stones of obstruction will not deter us.
Dear friend, are you facing some heavy and large stones of discouragement, intimidation and fear on your way? Are these stones too big as to give you the feeling that you cannot continue with your journey? But remember that no stone is too large to prevent God’s children from walking on pathways that He has marked out for us. When God prepares our way, no force in this Universe can stop us from going forward. God has also given us the great spiritual armor of faith to overcome the stones of obstruction and intimidation. Our God is much greater than all these stones that the enemy places on our way. The God who created the greatest mountains of this universe would not have any problem handling these stones of distraction. With the God of the Mountains on our side, we can overcome all these obstructions. As our eyes are captivated by the glory of our Lord, we can easily brush aside these stones. Today God reminds us that there is no need for us to be afraid of these stones. He wants us to look at Him and His glory to get our spiritual batteries recharged to enable us to go forward. The stones of discouragement will not be capable to retract us because we are moved forward by the power of God. He wants us to focus on our destination that He has placed before our eyes which we can see by faith. When we take steps of faith, God performs the great ministry of preventing our foot from striking against any stones of discouragement. Let us look at our Lord today and walk by faith and in the courage He has given us. Let us enjoy His reassurance that we will go forward against the stones of obstruction.
Hebrews 12:2a – Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
