But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour… (Isaiah 43:1-3a KJV)
Have you go through obstacles that were so hard to finish it? Being in leadership, it is not always easy to stand for those who you loved. I know that President-Elect Obama will have to face the new challenges as he will lead our nation within the next four to eight years, even though he may have less military skills.
Let’s look a couple of things to become a leadership. Even though you may receive the highest honorable award from your leadership position, it is not honor thing to do to king or queen yourself. I know that this is the main problem in today’s church. Pastor Joel Osteen is leading the American people into that direction. His teaching is trying to promote on peoples’ lives rather than God. There is no great thing that would compare to our Holy Father.
We all have failed to live our lives as holy. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that God knew us before we came out from our mothers’ bellies. He brought us to the earth. There’s no reason to climb ourselves up more than God.
The main reason that we face many obstacles in our lives is because we are humans that have choice to do good things or bad. We cannot blame Adam and Eve for our choices. This is false teaching that many preachers proclaim that we have to blame our ancestors for our wrong choices.
We face many obstacles in our lifetimes because of three reasons. First, we decide to go hard way to live our lives holy. Second, Satan is trying to attempt us to sin against God. Third, God wants us to go through challenges to build our faiths in Him. So, we always cannot blame our ancestors for our life challenges. They are not responsible for our life choices.
Jesus died for our sins. This doesn’t mean that we irresponsible to pay the price. Instead, we have to obey His words and spread the Gospel to the world.
