And the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I will begin to exalt you in the eyes of all Israel, so they may know that I am with you as I was with Moses. Tell the priests who carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the edge of the Jordan’s waters, go and stand in the river.’ ” The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord stopped in the middle of the Jordan and stood on dry ground, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground. Joshua 3:7-8, 17 NIV

Your resolution to forget those things which have happened in the past and move forward toward the agenda of God has for your life will definitely bring you in contact with certain obstacles and challenges. God’s purpose for allowing such is not to suffer you or cause you unnecessarily pain, stress or agony. Rather, it is for your benefit. That the watching world may know that of a truth you are a child of God and that God is with you.

Therefore, you need not to be afraid and lose hope when those difficulties come. Every seeming great mountain that stands in your way which looks to you as impenetrable and insurmountable is a thoroughfare for the Lord Almighty to demonstrate His incomparably great power in your life and make you a hero and a champion.

Your option now to experience the supernatural power that turns obstacles into stepping stones and a big hindrance into the divine ladder to climb up to your glorious heights is to look away from anything whatsoever that is standing on your way, look steadfastly on God, holding on to His word and trusting Him that He has the capacity to fulfill all His promises for you.

What looks to you like a great mountain is the platform God has planned to set you upon in order to gain honour for Himself and authenticate your election as His child. Don’t be discouraged but move forward still and you will surely overcome in Jesus name. Good morning and do have a victorious week.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola.
