00635 - What Is Holding You Back?

We often encounter barriers that hinder our faith's growth, such as doubt, fear, and complacency. These obstacles can lead us into stagnation, preventing us from experiencing the fullness of God's plans for our lives. Hebrews 12:1 (NKJV) urges us, "Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us." 

Overcoming these barriers requires intentional action. By seeking God's guidance and wisdom, we can gain clarity on the steps needed to move forward, strengthening our trust in His promises.

Lastly, community plays a crucial role in our spiritual breakthrough. Surrounding ourselves with positive Christians provides support, accountability, and encouragement as we journey toward deeper faith. Embracing God's love, wisdom, and the fellowship of the faithful, we can overcome the barriers holding us back and step into the life He has ordained for us.


Always attack fear and embrace faith in God.


Lord, help me overcome the issues that might be holding me back. Amen.
