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 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 that have happened in the past and move forward with the fulfillment of God’s mandate for your life will bring you in contact with certain obstacles and challenges. God’s purpose for allowing such is not to suffer you or cause you unnecessary 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 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 and is an opportunity for God to demonstrate His incomparably great power on your behalf to make you a hero and a champion.

Your best 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 in your way, look steadfastly with hope unto Jesus, holding on to His word and trusting Him that can fulfill all His promises for you.

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

Your brother,
