There are so many barriers that keep me from my relationship with God. He’s not the one who puts them there though, I do. He has promised in Matthew 28:20 that, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” But my human heart is fickle and has trouble staying with Him in the same way. If you think these barriers get easier to face during YWAM DTS, you may be mistaken. While it is an incredible environment for growing in your faith, if my own experience is any indication, the challenges only seem to be strengthened and multiplied and it feels like I have to work 50 times harder to move forward. The difference is, the closeness that I have found in my relationship with God here whenever I do break through these barriers is so radical, so intimate, and so worth every ounce of strength it took to fight my way towards Him. Here are three areas I have had to battle through during this time in order to surrender my heart to Him completely, and when I am able to do that, the breakthrough is incredible.
So, if you’re battling through any of these areas, don’t be discouraged. There is always a way out! Jesus’ main defense when He was tempted by Satan was to combat each temptation with scripture, and I encourage you to do the same. God will never give you anything that is too hard for you to handle, and He will be with you every step of the way. Keep persevering! God has promised us we will find Him when we seek Him with all our heart.
