Isaiah 57:14 – And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of my people.
The obstacles that come in our lives will not stop us; it can rob our money, our health, but God will remove the obstacle. Whatever be the obstacle, God is going to remove it.
It may come in the form of pain, difficult times and problems, but it can’t stand forever. God will remove it. The obstacles in our lives are not the end of everything; it is only the beginning of a greater blessing.
God will deliver us. God is the same; no matter how strong the obstacle is, God will remove it. In the midst of all obstacles, God’s name will be glorified. All the stumbling blocks in your life are going to become stepping stone for success. If God be for us, who can be against us? God is rising up the church mightily.
Joshua 5:9 – And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day
Gilgal is a place were the reproach is been rolled away. Israelites went through many stumbling blocks in history; the Lord said to Joshua “I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt”. Every obstacle against the church and against the believer will be rolled away by Jesus.
We have a Gilgal called Golgotha; all our reproach is taken away at the cross of Calvary by Jesus. It is all over; Jesus said it is finished. You don’t have to hold on to the pain.
Whatever is your reproach or stumbling block in your family, in your personal life, in your business or in your work, you don’t have to hold on to that obstacle. Take it away in Jesus name.
2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
Your stumbling block is going to become a big deliverance, don’t leave; keep going. The old is gone; the new is come.
2 Kings 2:1 – And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
Only when you have a reproach at Gilgal; you will have a Bethel waiting for you. You will have a transfiguration; a spiritual break through. No matter how big the problem is, stay in the presence of the Lord.
1 Samuel 11:14 – Then said Samuel to the people, Come, and let us go to Gilgal, and renew the kingdom there.
If you want to make a difference in your generation, get to Gilgal – the Calvary and stand there; don’t run away. You will see a great deliverance. God is with you. You may go through pain and suffering, but wait there, It will take you to a place where God will appear to you – The Bethel. So whatever is your obstacle, stand in the presence of God. Amen.
