What are you determined to do? What are you going to do or get no matter the odds that you face, or the obstacles that come in your way?
Your determination will decide the fate of your goal, the faith that you have will fuel your determination. So how much faith do you have and how determined you are will most ultimately decided your fate.
There is this awesome story of a women who encountered Jesus to see that her daughter would be healed. Now this woman had in many ways no right to seek Jesus out as she was a Canaanite, and woman. Back then women were not supposed to talk to men. This did not matter to her one bit, she was determined and believed that Jesus could solve her problem. So facing many obstacles and never taking no for an answer this woman received what she was asking for and her daughter was healed. Jesus was amazed by her faith. So take your attention back to the questions that you were being asked at the beginning of this article. Is there anything that comes to mind, is there anything that you are going to do no matter what? If there is how determined are you, how much faith are you going to apply to it? When you answer these questions you can then and only then know if you will get it done. Looking at the things we want to do and realizing that they are going to be hard is a lot like our relationship with Jesus. We know we have it and we know we want it to grow, but sometimes we just don’t know how to make it happen. This is because we might not have given enough thought to the obstacles that are going to come our way as we seek to grow our relationship. Relationships are hard at best, they require time and energy, if they are going to grow and survive. If we want our relationship with Jesus to be something more than it is currently we are going to have to apply determination and faith to it daily.
If there are things that we want out of life we must apply determination and faith to them so that we might be able to achieve them. I will assure you that their will be obstacles that come and people who will tell you that you have no right to achieve such things, but you are empowered with the Holy Spirit and that changes everything.

Romans 8:37-39 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. When you start to realize the power that is in you through your faith that you have in Jesus, you will realize that all things are possible. To strengthen our relationship with Jesus we must realize that depth of the relationship that He wants to have with us. All the power on the earth and in the heavens will never separate us from His love. That is a power source that you can grow in and from. Increase your determination and your faith and you will achieve things you never thought possible!
