Overcoming obstacles is something everyone faces. Sometimes as Christians, it feels as though we face them more than anyone else. We get frustrated. We get upset and mad at God. We’ve all been there. But what is the best way to overcome obstacles that are placed in our paths? Sometimes as a young person, I wonder if there even is a good way to do that.
There is though. Just keep going. Don’t stop what you’re doing.
You shouldn’t stop reading your Bible, praying, or going to church when things get tough. In fact, you should do the complete and utter opposite. Stay where you are and keep doing what you’re doing. You will eventually overcome the obstacle, but without God it will be even harder. Without Him we are nothing and can do nothing. With Him, though, we are capable of so much more.
Trust Jesus to get you over that obstacle your facing. Do not run from your problems or hide from it. That will only make it worse. Run to Jesus instead. Ask him to show you what you should do or how you should handle the situation. Read His word because it is a lamp that lights our dark path.
