Break Through the Barriers

The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1 

Within the post “Spiritual Treasures are Forever”, written about was that Paul was of good courage and we can be of good courage today by having the attitude that difficulties faced on earth are only short-term. This day with God, accumulate the permanent treasures that are from the Spirit because they will be with you forever.

Many times when faced with challenges in life, we put up barriers. An example was the mile race in track. No one had broken the 4 minute barrier until Roger Bannister. He ran the first sub-4-minute mile in the 1952 Olympics. Today, all Olympic athletes run sub-4-minutes miles.

Barriers in life can be broken but it takes courage to overcome our doubts. Like in the song Whom Shall I Fear by Chris Tomlin, God will hear your prayers. There is no one or thing to fear. God has an army of angels always by your side. There is victory in Jesus for He has gone before you to make sure things fall into place. Hold on to the promise for He is always faithful.
