“And it shall be said, “Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people’s way.” (Isaiah 57:14 ESV)

Bicycling is a healthy, low-impact exercise that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It gives your heart, blood vessels and lungs a good workout. It is also fun, cheap and good for the environment but a biker’s progress would come to a sudden halt if a large tree fell on their path. Fortunately there are land owners that can clear away fallen trees on the path beforehand using power tools to cut through any obstructions. Something that obstructs or hinders progress is called an obstacle. In the path of life various obstacles can limit our progress. Financial difficulties, health problems, and relationship conflicts can be significant hurdles to overcome but the Lord prepares the way beforehand removing every obstruction with his power for all those humble people who take refuge in him.
