Memorise: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. ” (John 10:10).
Read: Luke 13:10-16
The Lord Jesus Christ compared the woman bound by a physical condition of sickness to an ox that is tied down at a stall; so we can learn a lot about what problem does in the lives of people. It reduces the mentality of a person, limiting his or her freedom, and does a lot of negative things to people. The devil is master at using situations and circumstances to damage and steal something precious that you need on your journey to your purpose.
The children of Israel murmured against Moses and said he should have left them in Egypt instead of bringing them out of slavery just because they faced a little challenge. This is what their time in slavery did to them. They could not see the future God was taking them to. God’s goal is not just to solve a problem for you, but to move you to your purpose.
It’s not a shame to have a problem that you’re dealing with, but it is wrong to continue grappling with problems all through your life and if you don’t come to God, if you don’t respond to the provision of God you will have to keep dealing with problems throughout your life because you won’t have time for your purpose.
Problem wants to employ your time, your faculties, your energy and your resources just like God designed your purpose to do, when you are engaged with it, you don’t have the time for problems. When you’re engaged with a problem, you have little or no time for your purpose and that’s the goal of the devil. You must make sure this is not true concerning you.
Lord I receive a seven-fold restoration of everything I will need on my journey to purpose and my destiny platform that has been stolen or affected by problems, situations and circumstances which I have gone through in Jesus’ name.
