Your problem is your highway to your promotion

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8: 28).

Usually, obstacles are open doors to overcomers. Joseph was a boy with great dreams. The problems confronting him could have proved to be great obstacles to the realization of his dreams. The scriptures reveal that the challenges that confronted him became stepping stones to his great achievements. He finally woke up one day to rise from prison to become the Prime minister in the palace of Pharaoh.

Have you heard of David, the son of Jesse who later became a great king in the land of Israel? It was not an easy journey to the throne for him. He had to confront the giant called Goliath, fight battles with the Philistines and live in exile away from home to escape the assassination of king Saul.

The story is the same for great achievers of world history. Courage to march forward is what you need in any problem that may come your way. Be sure that victory lies ahead.

What distinguishes winners from losers is the way they view and/or handle problems. While winners view great obstacles as challenges too big to miss, the losers view it as too big to hit. You should not be intimidated by problems and difficulties.

Challenges have their limit. God will not allow you to be tempted “above that ye are able” (1Corinthians 10: 13). As a child of God, see obstacles as means to achievement for “all things work together for good to them that love God”.

Challenge: God is greater than my problems.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to move forward regardless of any obstacles on my way of progress.
