What do you do when God is instructing you to move forward in life, but you're stuck.  You think you can't move forward, because you've not finished what you've been doing.  But God is telling you it IS done.  He is crying to close the door and open a new opportunity, but you keep putting your foot in the way.    Here are some ways we block God's Blessing and stay stuck between the rocks:

Living in Rebellion     

James 4:2 New King James Version (NKJV)

You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and [a]war. [b]Yet you do not have because you do not ask.

James 4:3 New International Version (NIV)

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

You Dont Come to God and Ask for His Blessings

Matthew 7:7-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

You Do Not Have Faith in God

James 1:6-7 New King James Version (NKJV)

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;

Philippians 4:6 New Living Translation (NLT)

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

You hate when people see you cry, because you want to be that strong person.  At the same time, though, you hate that nobody notices how torn and broken apart you are.   Always remember that you are free to do what you want to do but you are never free from the consequences of your actions.  So always choose to do good.

There come a time when you have to stop crossing oceans for people who wouldn't even jump puddles for you.  People always think the most painful thing in life is losing the one you value.  The truth is, the most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of valuing someone too much and forgetting that you are special too.

Crawl out from under, squeeze through from in between - Stand tall on your rock!

Leave your footprints so that someone can follow you.  That they may be able to walk your walk, be able to find their way through your guidance, can navigate via your direction.  Lead by example.

You don't do good works to be saved, you do good works because your are saved!

Stir up the gift that lies within you - don't compare you gift with anyone else's.  The gift is from God, and it is for you alone! No one can do with it what you wil be able to, no one can distribute is greatness in the way you have been enabled.  We must step in and fil in where we have the courage to and even when we do not, we must have the determination to. 

We must be about God's business and not about the Devil's busyness. We must suport each other. Give to those who have not, asking and expecting nothing in return. Like the song say, "We all need somebody to lean on!" We must learn to lean on one another,  be helpers and doers, hold each other up. Everyone cannot be at the top, somebody got to be the foundation, somebody got to hold the ladder, somebody got to leave their footprints.

Minister Cheryl Moore

Philippians 4:6-7  (NIV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
