By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.

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

Matthew 13:58 And Jesus did not do many mighty works there because of THEIR UNBELIEF.

BLOCKAGE: MAJOR MATERIALISM.

Matthew 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful:

FOR HE HAD GREAT POSSESSIONS.

BLOCKAGE: LOOSE LIONS....IMAGINARY MIND GAMES. (exist in mind only.)

There was a man that was supposed to go to work in Jerusalem, Prob. 22: 13 There is a lion without, I will get killed, I better not go to work..... Jerusalem was a big city with walls and safety, no loose lions there.

Our enemy will distort whispers.

BLOCKAGE: FAMILY DUTIES.

Luke 5:59 There was a man called by Jesus to launch out into the deep.... He explained to Jesus, I will be happy, let me first bury my father.

This is a fair request: until you find out, his dad is still a living?

BLOCKAGE: WEIGHTS

Many are reluctantly willing to lay down sin, the call must reach beyond.... Heb. 12:1 Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which DOTH SO EASILY BESET US, AND RUN---- Hard to run distances with a lot of weight.

BLOCKAGE: SEARCH FOR USER FRIENDLY, CONVENIENCE, IDEAL, BETTER SUITABLE, EASIER.

Acts 24:25 Felix reasoned .... WHEN I HAVE A MORE CONVENIENT TIME, I WILL CALL....

BLOCKAGE: STUBBORNNESS/ UNYIELDING/OBSTINATE/ HARD TO MANAGE--HANDLE

Stubborn and rebel are kissing cousins. Study and see if stubbornness does run through generations?

1Sam 15:23 identifies stubbornness as a sin and rejection of word.

BLOCKAGE OF DISCOURAGEMENT.

Num. 21:4-5 come out of Egypt and get discouraged? Discouraged people talk bad about leaders and God.

Num. 32:9 Discouraged people refuse the Promise ...Land?

BLOCKAGE OF DISCOURAGEMENT BECOMES HABITUAL.

Will we search and see what hinders us?
