The first step to overcoming any obstacle in our life & spiritual path is to know that God is for us. For, what does God say through the Prophet Jeremiah:
“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (29:11)
Therefore, know that God wants us to overcome all that stands in our way. He wants us to be successful. And He wants us to have an abundance of everything. But, all of this will come only once we put God first in our lives. All will be provided for us, but only after we have complete trust in Him; and make a relationship with Him our top priority.
We must trust in God so completely that we can live our lives following Jesus’ words:
“do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’… But seek first the kingdom of God & all things shall be given to you.” (Matthew 6:31-33)
Our abundance, or lack thereof, is really due to our state of mind & thoughts. Banish forever the thought that in order to be spiritual & holy you must be poor or give up certain things. Affirm instead the eternal goodness of God. Realize that He is the source of all, and that if we recognize our oneness with Him that we would express abundance & become aware of our inner strength to overcome anything which may stand in our way.
In truth, all those who loved & followed God were wealthy & successful people; i.e. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, King David, King Solomon, etc… The thing to remember is they didn’t chase wealth & weren’t attached to their wealth. They sought God first…and in return were blessed with abundance.
The universe which God created is self-sustaining. It is able to provide for all that it needs and when an imbalance occurs it can automatically correct itself & return to a state of peace & equilibrium. We who are part of the universe therefore cannot be limited either. And if we find lack in any area of our lives then we too have the ability to draw from God, or the universe, and return to a place of peace & balance.
Know that God’s Divine intelligence is guiding you, He is within you and His strength and abundance can be drawn upon whenever you need it. All is for us, nothing is against us. Each of us has access to God & His goodness. Therefore, whatever obstacles are standing in your way with God you shall overcome them all. Call upon Him; for His help cannot be given unless we ask. Seek Him; and He shall not deny you of anything.
God bless you on your journey & remember to always – Heed the Spirit,
