Keys to Overcoming the Hindrances in your Life

Author requests article critique


There are hindrancesi n your life and you don't know what to do,there are several keys to overcoming your hindrances, if you give heed to them you will be begin to see them removed and your life transformed.

You are above the hindrances
You have to know who you are, you are an overcomer and more than a conqueror. You are above and not below, the head and not the tail. God has given you authority as a believer. Greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world. He has given you power over all the powers of the enemy.
You have been seeing the hindrances like giants and yourself like the grasshopper.When you do that you are already defeated in your mind because you are displaying a grasshopper mentality. Because your thinking is small, all your circumstances look insurmountable.

Have a desire to overcome
You must have a desire to overcome, desire change and never resign yourself to whatever life throws at you.You don't have to accept the status quo. You have been in a bad situation for so long that you believe that's the best you can have, but that's not true.You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.The doctors report says that you will have to remain in wheel chair for the rest of your life but the word says you are healed. The doctor's report is a fact but the truth is Jesus has the last word.

Make the effort for yourself
You need to begin to make the effort for yourself. A certain man had an impediment for thirty-eight years and when he was asked if he would like to be made whole, he said he had no one to put him in the water when it is troubled.
Don't be like this man, he gave up even before he tried, he saw all the indrances in front of him , you have to make the effort for yourself.Its better to try than never to try at all.The violent take it by force, this violent faith always takes things.

Forget the past
Forget your past, don't look back, you can't look back and move forward it will hinder you.You have to forget those things which are behind and look forward to those things that are before you.The past will keep you in bondage, old things have passed away.You have to loose the past to hold the future,
You have to break the old patterns of destructive thinking. How are you going to do that? by taking note of where your thoughts are coming from and putting God first and beginning to think the way God thinks. For as a man thinketh in his hear, so is he.
Your thoughts direct the success in your life, whether in your career, relationships, health or your faith.Today you are a picture of what you spoke in your heart in the past, change what you speak today and you future will change.

Live in expectancy
You have to live in a place of expectancy. the man at the Beautiful Gate looked eagerly unto them expecting to receive something, he expected alms but he got more than he was asking for, he got his life back. He expected something and he received.
And throughout Jesus' earthly ministry, when anyone sought out Jesus to do something for them, it was because they were living in expectancy, always expecting the master to touch their situation.
When the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus' garment, .she expected to receive her healing.

Refuse fear
Refuse to be dominated by fear. Job said, the thing which I greatly fear is come upon me.
Whatever you continually fear will come upon you, don't blame your circumstances on misfortune, bad luck, other people or fate.
You ask yourself for it by giving place to fear.You are your own biggest enemy. Change all this right now.
God has not given you a spirit of fear but power and love and a sound mind.

It's time to over come the hindrances in your life, take control.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
