Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back


Have you been Stumbling? Does it sometimes feel like when you take two steps forward, you take three steps back? Or perhaps after many twists and turns your hopes are dashed as you reach yet another dead end and you’re back at square one?

Apparently you need wisdom:

Proverbs 4:11 I will teach you wisdom’s ways and lead you in straight paths.
12 When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble.

I have a book by Valorie Burton called What’s Holding You Back?
It’s a good question to ask yourself (and a good book to read)
A lot of what holds us back- you will notice- are not physical ropes but mental and spiritual chains. Some are within our control, some are not. If you are willing, the light of God’s word will search for those chains and dismantle them, for Jesus came to set the captives free.

Father I pray for the person reading this, that you will open their heart to receive the wisdom that you so freely give; and with your wisdom and the light of your word, their path will be made straight and they will achieve the dreams you have placed inside them, in Jesus name. I thank you that we are free indeed because The Son has set us free. Amen.
