Don’t Let Stumbling Blocks Get in Your Way

MP900149038One of the greatest stumbling blocks in our life can be any form of suffering. Be it sickness, jobless, or disease. We all will suffer. Oftentimes it can be of our own doing. That can make us feel our life has been ruined.

Not all suffering is intended by God. We must know the difference and not blame it all on God. We may create it ourselves out of disobedience. That will cause us to sin because we were not obedient.

Suffering is the result of sin that started with man. Genesis tells us how Adam and Eve went against God’s instructions and sinned against Him. They were disobedient.  As a result, sin came from man and woman’s disobedience.

We live in a fallen world. Suffering is to be expected. But the difference is in how you handle it. When stumbling blocks get in your way, don’t let temptation stop you from reaching your destination. Through faith, God can crush temptation.

No matter what form of suffering you may experience. Know that God’s grace is sufficient. God can use it to accomplish a greater good. Have faith. Persevere. Endure.

Be blessed! -JD

Matthew 18:7 “Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes!” (NASB)

    Reblogged this on Into Yahweh's Presence and commented:
    I agree that stumbling blocks are those temptations that beseech us that with the power of the Holy Spirit we can over come.

    I did not know that verse in the Bible. Thanks for sharing. It is funny. I just posted a blog on Stumbling Blocks To Success this morning when I saw your posting. I had not thought about health issues, but that could certainly be in there too. Nice blog. Hope you have a blessed day.

    • It’s funny you should mention this because I too had not known of it until I did a search. And couldn’t help but share. You’re welcome. My pleasure.

      I agree. Health issues are definitely to be considered especially when it is unexpected and can take your eyes off the prize.

      Thanks for the compliment. You too, have a blessed day!
