This is Voice of Comfort to tell us about some things we bring to ourselves that have caused us self-inflicted hindrance. Times without number we have attached to our selves, excessive loads that always result to an impediment in our lives.
In the guise of looking for help or assistance, we get extra luggage from families and friends and the enemies use this as an avenue to hinder our progress. Lot was a self-inflicted hindrance in Abraham’s life. He was the excessive luggage proving to be an obstacle in Abraham’s journey.
Abraham never settled until he parted way with Lot. All promises God made to Abraham was never fulfilled until their separation because Lot was never in God’s program and blessings for Abraham.
How many times have you caused a setback for yourself by getting an extra handbag from the family? The family may have good intention but what about the handbag itself. Several times they become impediment to your success as they soon become remote camera that monitors your day to day activities and they send negative reports to their masters.
Sometimes the best offense is to avoid self-destruction. Most of the luxury and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind. Freedom, they say, comes with self-knowledge, when the mind goes above and beyond the hindrances it has created for itself.
