“Is not My word like fire?” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?” (Jeremiah 23:29 NASB)

There will always be obstacles in the way of your dream. Having vision, goals, plans, and promises doesn’t move the bramble and boulders obstructing your way. But, God’s Word is like fire. It’s like a hammer that shatters a rock.

Declare God’s word over your life. Send it ahead of you. Shout it to the briars that block your path; burn them up. Confess it like a roar onto the rocks that hinder; smash them to pieces. Don’t be timid with weapon of God’s Word. Wield it boldly, confidently. It is powerful to the destruction of fortresses and the pulling down of strongholds (2Corinthians 10:4). 

You can expect obstacles in proportion to the size of your dreams. But you do not have to fear them. Strike them down with the power of God’s word.
