What Hinders Me?

“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?”(Acts 8:35-36)

Hinder – to hamper, obstruct, stop, and interfere with

As he sojourned on the road to a personal relationship with God the Eunuch to some water and asked a very introspective question; “What hinders me,,,?” The fact that he came to water is very significant since water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. He came to a turning point, where he had to face the hindrances and obstacles.

The Eunuch was trying to pinpoint what was hindering him from being submerged in a deeper relationship with the Lord? What was hindering him from moving from the shallow place? What was hindering him from going to the next level? He wanted to identify any obstruction to his relationship with the Lord and actually do something about.
Beloved, as we journey with the Lord let us be alert and sober to things that may be standing in our way. It may be people’s opinion, pride, the past, fear, trials and testing just to name a few. When we discover our hurdles know; that through Jesus Christ we have the victory and we are more than conquerors.
