Crushing Fear – Day 28 – Obstacles

When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.

— Zig Ziglar —


I’ve lived long enough to know that effectively handling obstacles is vital in our quest to be all we are called to be.

My life experiences have taught me …

When facing an obstacle, the enemy tries his darnedest to fill us with fear of failure, so we will throw in the towel and quit.

On the other hand, God views obstacles as setbacks for setups for comebacks.


An effective way to handle obstacles is by turning them over to God daily–as early and often as you need.

He will open your eyes, heart, and mind to pathways over, around, under, and through your life obstacles.

I always write from experience.

Romans 8:28 (NIV), “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”


What beliefs, thoughts, and actions cause you to struggle with challenges and obstacles?
