Scriptures: Jeremiah 29:11-13
No matter what road blocks we face in life God has a plan: He can guide you through it, lead you around it, take you over it or help you go under it.
Road blocks are lesson builders. Sometimes in life we need to slow down and recalculate where we are and where we are going. Tough times can make us bitter or better. We choose: do you want to be bitter or better?
Road blocks help us to see the big picture. It's not about how fast we get to our destination, but it's that we reach our destination! Sometimes in life we are moving forward so fast we forget where we were headed to begin with.
Road blocks can keep us out of danger. The long way around could be the safest course to take. Our desire to accomplish something quickly can cause us to neglect the caution signs right in front of us.
Ask yourself the question could the obstacle you are facing just be a detour? Jesus is saying: slow down: its time to chart another course. You've been moving too fast and have sped right past God's purpose for your life. Danger was ahead so Jesus sent you another way.
