Along the pathway to heaven there will be times that you wonder if God is trying to stop you in the way that you are going or if it is simply an hurdle that you are supposed to challenge and go over.
Proverbs 4:26 reads :
“Ponder the path of thy feet and let all thy ways be established.”
Balaam was resisting God ( Numbers 22)and Paul was “kicking against the pricks..” ( Acts 9:5) , while David in the wilderness was being perfected ( Psalm 42) and the giants in Canaan were to be challenged and overcome ( Numbers 14:7-9).
“Through faith we understand” by our reading the Word of God and trusting the Spirit’s guiding mind. – I Cor . 2:13, Romans 8:26.
