Have you ever blamed someone for your lack of progress. Could it be possible that you put so much time and energy into trying to change the way people treat you, that you fail to see how you may be blocking your own blessings?
Sometimes we look at are circumstances, where we are, and the people who are in our circle and blame these vary aspects of our lives as the reason we are in such a low place. We point the finger at what he said, how she behaved and the impact those things have our existence. Once we identify these barriers to our fruitful living, we turn our focused attention toward these people and situations. Having found the source of our dissatisfaction with life, we settle into a pattern of being content in unhappiness.
The moment must come for you to begin to realize that it is not people and things that block our paths, it is we, ourselves. Yes, the fight is not against your inner circle or even your situation, it is you. You are the one who decides whether or not to allow nonsense into your life. You are the one who sets the priorities in your life. You are the one who knows who you were created to be and if you are living the life you are supposed to be Its all you!
But….the problem is that you have failed to realize that just as you can be your own teammate, you can also be the toughest opponent you have ever had. Why…because you, in relationship with God, have the whole world at your disposal, but instead of walking in faith, you abandon the process; instead of walking in your purpose, you become paralyzed; instead of being true to yourself, you compromise.
Yes, you are who you are fighting against. Everyone else is just playing along.
