Have you ever encountered a rockslide across the road while driving? It’s a travel frustration requiring hours of waiting and possibly a complete rerouting of your trip. Rockslides are triggered when rock, earth, plants and other debris lose their hold on each other and slide down to the lowest point.
Teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance. Acts 28:31
The Bible talks about two things that can cause a spiritual rockslide, greatly hindering your spiritual journey. In essence, these things block your effectiveness as a Christian. They don’t annul your salvation; they deter the results God may be working to accomplish through your prayers and efforts. The two issues are: personal sin in your life, and unforgiveness toward another person.
Are you missing passion, power and effectiveness in your prayers or in your relationship with Christ? Maybe there has been a rockslide in your heart. Ask God to reveal any sin in your life, and humbly request and accept His forgiveness. Then have an attitude of forgiveness toward the person who has sinned against you. Once the road is clear, you can get back on your way; teaching, leading and praying with boldness for others and for America.
