We have got to come to the point where we will do anything that Christ asks us to do. The great thing about it is that we have just got to turn and say, “God, have your way. I am going to release my grasp on this stumbling block.” He will then come in and take care of it. He would have helped this rich young ruler to go through the process of selling everything and giving things to the poor. Who knows what Christ would have done in his live after this. What is your stumbling block? When Christ looks at you, loving you, what stumbling block does he see? Have you dealt with it?
When Lisa and I bought our first house in Houston, the previous owner, for some reason, left a big, old cement block in our back yard. I think it held some kind of clothesline thing. Every night when I would go out to feed the dogs, I would have to walk past the cement block. And I can’t tell you how many times I jammed my toe on it, hit my knee on it. This block would test my Christianity every evening. I said, over and over, that I was going to get rid of the block. I never did. I never did. I never did. Ed Young Jr says but finally, about a year later, I determined that the day had arrived. I got shovels, chains and a rope and I pulled the cement block out of the yard. It was tough but I felt so good because nothing was impeding my progress when I went out to feed the dogs for the next four or five months that we lived in that home. It takes work to remove the stumbling block in your spiritual life, but it is much better than the story that I just told you. You are not doing it alone. You have got Jesus working with you. He will infuse a supernatural strength and energy that you never thought possible. Stumbling blocks.
Then the Bible says the Lord, after Jonah boarded this vessel, the Lord sent a great wind on the sea, and I thank God for the winds that God sends in my life© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young
