“some obstacles are placed by God to keep us from doing something foolish. when our plans are hindered, we shouldn’t assume that it’s satan trying to stop us. it might be God trying to protect us.” Julie Ackerman (referring to the story of Balaam in Numbers)
to me, this life is only a daily journey. walk right today, allowing God to direct me. of course I’ll still make mistakes. believe me, I’ve plowed through more than a few hurdles I now believe He placed but the way back is shorter when I’m looking to Him daily!
The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; (Psalm 37:23 NIV)
