The Amazing Race Part 2

Definition of Roadblock:

  1. Definition 1: A hindrance or Obstruction.
  2. Definition 2: A barrier or barricade on a road, especially one set up by the authorities to stop and examine traffic.

God’s Natures:

  1. Omnipotence: All powerful. He can do everything, including creating us humans in His image and with a freewill.
  2. Omniscience: All knowing. He is aware of past, present and future; and always knows best about our future.
  3. Omnibenevolence: All loving. His love to us is way beyond what we can comprehend or measure.

If He is all powerful, all knowing and all loving then why does He not prevent roadblocks in our life and make our journey a ‘freeway’?
