How To Get Un-Stuck

By: ryan leatham

Feel like you're not making much progress with Jesus?

It is possible to get stuck spiritually. Looking at my life, there are two things that have held me back and stunted my relationship with Jesus.

Growth Stoppers

1) Sin you do. Sin we haven't repented of. Until we turn away from the sin we keep doing by confessing it and repenting--we will be stuck.

2) Sin you "don't do". Wait whaaaat? Sin isn't just doing what we know we shouldn't. Sin is also NOT DOING what we know we should.

Are you stuck right now? Maybe one or both of those growth stoppers describe you. The good news is we don't have to stay stuck.

How to Get Un-Stuck

1) Confess and repent of the sin! Don't put it off. Talk to somebody. Have at least one person in your life that knows everything about you. No secrets. 

THE CONSEQUENCES OF CONCEALING YOUR SIN ARE PAIN AND DEATH. THE CONSEQUENCES OF CONFESSING YOUR SIN ARE GRACE AND HEALING. 

2) Read your Bible. Maybe you really aren't sure what God is asking you to do. Reading your Bible isn't just a good idea, it's important because it helps you get to know what God is like and what He is calling you to do. Then you'll know God's plan, and God's plan is better than our own.  

You don't have to be stuck anymore. Jesus has made a way for us to know God's plan and be free us from the sin that holds us back.
