"I will go before you and make the rough places smooth. I will break the doors of bronze in pieces and cut apart the bars of iron." - Isaiah 45:2
Living life apart from God can get you in the harm's way, which plunges many into misery. Those who think that they have heaps of possessions to enjoy life without God on the radar may soon end up in penury. To put this in perspective, keeping God at arm's length cannot but get you in the harm's way, where you become vulnerable to the attacks and gimmicks of the devil. Hence, those who sidestep the pursuit of God fall short of their goals and aspirations. The devil puts the brake on their progress because there is no light in them. Hence, if you want to reach your goal and fulfil God's plan for your life, you need to place Him above all else. And when God is ahead of you, He will certainly REMOVE EVERY OBSTACLE TO YOUR ADVANCEMENT.
It is heartening to know that when God is ahead of you, HE MAKES A SPECTACLE OF THOSE WAITING FOR YOUR FALL. Whilst they think they have succeeded in mounting up roadblocks against your destiny, they fail to realise that you are not alone in the journey of life. True life begins when a man journeys with God, when God is ahead of him, with him and for him. Those who relegate God to the basement don't enjoy divine advancement and supernatural upgrade in life. Rather they run up against oppositions that transcend their capability. In Joshua 7, when the army of Israel proceeded against the city of Ai, the Israelites were defeated because God was uninvolved in their battle. This occurred on account of God's withdrawal from His people because of the sin of a covetous Jew, who polluted the camp of God's children. Conversely, in Judges 7, when Gideon and his men proceeded against the armies of the Midianites, with just 300 men, the host of the Midianites were reduced to defeat. Hence, if you want God to make a spectacle of your adversaries, let Him go ahead of you while you keep within the circumference of His will for your life.
Ultimately, God in the life of a man triggers show- stopping occurrences that make the sons of men to wonder. Those who place God's program above their preferences don't twist in the pains of disappointment and regrets. They have no cause to recycle regrets and shame, which overtakes those who thrust God aside. Are you often preoccupied with doing things your own way while disregarding God's perspective? You run the risk of placing yourself in an awkward situation, in which God may be unwilling to help. However, if you allow God to move ahead and help you clear the obstacles in your journey to stardom, HE WILL CERTAINLY LAUNCH YOU INTO YOUR MIRACLE even in the presence of your adversaries. Henceforth, let God take the lead while you follow His orders and you will end up counting your blessings while those who act the other way round end up counting their losses.
