1. THE LORD GOES BEFORE US AND BREAKS DOWN THE BARRIERS

The Lord goes before us and breaks the barriers and opens a way for us. We must follow the Lord and not try to go ahead of Him in our impatience . Otherwise we will be faced with insurmountable obstacles. When the Lord goes before us , He will make the crooked places straight and break barriers which are strong like gates of bronze and bars of iron . Whenever we face barriers too strong for us to break , we must allow the Lord to destroy them for us and open a way for us to progress.

MICAH 2:13

One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their king will pass through before them, the LORD at their head."

ISAIAH 45:1-3

"Thus says the LORD to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— To subdue nations before him And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double doors, So that the gates will not be shut:

’ I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron.

I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.

2. THE HAND OF GOD DOES FOR US WHAT NO MAN CAN DO

The Lord wants to make us into a sharp threshing instrument to thresh mountains and crush them . When we face challenges which looms like a mountain before us , we must not despair but instead we must allow the Lord to make us into a sharp threshing instrument and crush these mountains. The Lord will meet our need even in desperate situations when it appears as though no hope or human help is available. He can satisfy the thirst of His people in all places whether it is a barren height or valley or desert or parched ground. He can cause deserts to blossom with trees. This will be a work of God and everyone will know that it not a human accomplishment . Therefore we have hope even in humanly impossible situations because the hand of the Lord will do for us what no man can do.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

********************************

ISAIAH 41:14-20

Do not be afraid, O worm Jacob, O little Israel, for I myself will help you," declares the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

"See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff.

You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up, and a gale will blow them away. But you will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

"The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.

I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.

I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together,

so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

3. THE HOLY SPIRIT DESTROYS THE STRONGHOLDS OF THE ENEMY

The Lord will break the yoke of the enemy by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. When we face challenges that cannot be overcome by human might or power , we must rely on the power of the Holy Spirit . By the power of the Spirit of God , the mountains will become level ground. When the enemy comes like a flood , the Spirit of God will lift a standard against him. The Holy Spirit will destroy the strongholds of the enemy by coming like a hail storm and a destructive wind and a driving wind and a flooding downpour. The wicked may boast that they are safe under the refuge of lies and false hood. But the Holy Spirit will destroy the refuge of lies and sweep away all the strongholds of the enemy.
