ROADBLOCKS – BRANCH ON THE VINE  (Day 4 of 7)
(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

So what stalls out God-dependence?

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 ESV

Me, me, me, me, me. Anytime I’d rather go my own way and not check in with God, I’m vulnerable to the icky kind of failure. His way really is best.

my way, his way signs

Sometimes it’s habit (it’s the way I’ve always done it). Sometimes it’s fear (I need to be in control), and sometimes it’s just plain bad attitude on my part (I like my way best).

What roadblocks do you face?
