As we journey through life, we quite often come across hurdles that blocks the paths of our journey. Barriers that are so huge that we have no human way of rolling them away. We therefore spend most of our lives either trying to roll them away of looking for someone who can do so for us. The barriers of unemployment, medical conditions, poverty, corruption amongst many others that are troubling many peopletoday. The scriptures gives the account of Jesus death and burial. His women followers had just witnessed his cruel death and burial and saw a huge stone rolled to cover his grave. It was possible for these women who wanted to give Jesus a descent burial to give up any further attempt to visit his grave again. However, against all odds they tried and kept asking the questions that many of us are asking today; “who will roll away the stone for us?”. Am encouraged to know there is a God who rolls away the stones that often block our paths. We shouldn’t just give up pursuing our dreams because it appears impossible for us. There is a God who specializes in removing hurdles when we refuse to give up. Where has life placed a hurdle your way and you almost feel like giving up? Where does the word impossible appear like a norm for you? The secret to God removing our hurdles is to just show up in faith. Jesus assured us that whatever is impossible with man is possible with God. Let us show up in the door of our barriers and God who removes barriers will come to our aid!
“and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” Mark 16:3 NIV
