Overcoming Obstacles

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off of the goal.” Henry Ford

“For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.” Philippians 3:18 (NIV)

It’s important how we view those obstacles, those enemies. Does God have a purpose for the obstacles?

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.”

Romans 15:4 (NIV)
