If you watched any of the Olympic competition. . .perhaps you caught the track and field events with the 100M and 400M hurdles.
The runners sprint. . .clearing a number of hurdles. . .before sprinting again to the finish line.
In other words. . .they face a number of hurdles or obstacles on their way to victory.
Everyday. . .you and I have hurdles. . .obstacles we have to overcome if we want to be successful in life and effective for the Kingdom.
Gail Devers, a three-time Olympic champion and member of the National Track and Filed Hall of Fame, said:
“In my race, there are 10 hurdles, but in life, there is always a hurdle. There is always something you gotta get over, and it's what you do, you know.”
Let’s look at seven hurdles you have to clear to gain the victory in life.
