TEXT:

Gen. 24:56 And he said unto them, HINDERME NOT,

SEEING THE LORD HATH PROSPERED MY WAY; SEND ME AWAY

THAT I MAY GO UNTO MY MASTER.

Galatians 5:7 YE DID RUN WELL; WHO DID HINDER YOU, that ye should not obey the truth.

Learning to identify what THE PERSONAL OBSTACLE is!!!

Let us ponder what hinders progress?

What hinders my progress?

If we can’t identify the problem, we can never correct it.

Our enemy wants all of God’s children to be retarded and hindered.

We must open our eyes and see.

Then the Holy Spirit will teach us to be more than overcomers.

BASICALLY 3 WAYS TO GO.

1) Forward

2) Backward

3) Neutral

Define:

-Progress --- advance, to develop higher, better

forward movement,

-Stumbling block: an obstacle to progress

an impediment (impedes, obstruction to belief or

understanding, hindrance

-Obstruction clog or block ---- hinder

Galatians 5:7 YE DID RUN WELL; WHO DID HINDER YOU, that ye should not obey the truth.

BLOCKAGE: CALL TO DO THE WORK FOR MASTER ----

SEE THERE IS MISSION.

Gen.24 Bridal search, Abraham sends servant.... ISSAC NEEDS A WIFE....

Gen. 24:56 And he said unto them, HINDERME NOT,

SEEING THE LORD HATH PROSPERED MY WAY; SEND ME AWAY

THAT I MAY GO UNTO MY MASTER.

WE DON’T HAVE TIME TO WASTE AND SIT AROUND DOING

NOTHING. The Master is wainting, we must overcome

all obstacles and hinderances.

Galatians 5:7 YE DID RUN WELL; WHO DID HINDER YOU, that ye should not obey the truth.

BLOCKAGE: HINDERING THE BASICS.

There are rules to follow, not bypass.

Acts 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the Eunuch said,

SEE HERE IS WATER; WHAT DOETH HINDER ME TO BE BAPTIZED?

37. AND PHILIP SAID, IF THOU BELIEVEST WITH ALL THINE HEART, THOU MAYEST.

BLOCKAGE: Two types of ways of dealing with BLOCKAGES;

1) Saul, son of Kish .... lie, deny, and blame.

2) David, son of Jesse .... Confess and repent....Psa. 51.

BLOCKAGE: POOR SENSE OF PRIORITIES

Three classes of hindrances: Luke 14: 18 --20

They all with one consent began to make excuse.

1) I have bought a piece of ground, I must needs go

see it... MATERIALISM

a) It is already a done deal.

b) He does not need to go work it, just see it.

2) I have bought 5 yoke of oxen....

BUSINESS/PLEASURE (oxen used for work and pull

family for outings)

a) Go prove them? already bought?

b) Won’t it wait?

3)I have married a wife.... RELATIONSHIPS

a) Rearrange schedule, move up or back one week?

b) Look on licenses no expiration date once

married.

BLOCKAGE: TRYING TO BE LIKE OTHERS

David and Saul’s armor....

1 Sam. 17:39 David girded Saul’s sword on Saul’s armor, and he started to go.....

I CANNOT GO WITH THESE, I HAVE NOT PROVED THEM....

BLOCKAGE: LIVING BY 5 SENSES....

Gen. 19:26 Lot’s wife looked back ....WHY? Allurements of heart/flesh.

Rom. 14:23 --- for whatsoever is not of faith is sin....

BLOCKAGE: DOUBT/ FEAR/ NO CONFIDENCE/ DISTRUST
