YOUR PROBLEM IS NOT THE PROBLEM

'Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.' - Isaiah 5 vs 13

My dearly beloved friend, I would love to let you know that your problem is not the problem.

There are many people in the maze of life as a result of certain trials and challenges, or trouble they face, and they really do not know the reason for their troubles or prolonged troubles as the case may be, so they go here and there looking for a solution to their problems, and it seems as though God has given up on them as a result of their unsolved sufferings. This can be an issue with health, this can be an issue with your finances, this can be an issue with your ministry, this can be an issue with your job, but the question is, 'what has gone wrong?' That's the exact reason for this piece, to edify your understanding.

According to our opening scriptures, the word 'CAPTIVITY' comes to our mind, and God says that HIS own people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge. He added that, HIS honourable men are famished/hungry, and thirsty, why; because they have no knowledge.

Brothers and Sisters,


  • What do you know about your life from the WORD?
  • What do you know about your health from the WORD?
  • What do you know about your marriage and family from the WORD?
  • What do you know about your finances from the WORD?
  • What do you know about your business from the WORD?
  • What do you know about your job from the WORD?
  • What do you know about your ministry from the WORD? e.t.c


My dear brother, my dear sister, do you know what God has said concerning you in these areas and more? From our opening scripture, God is telling us that,


  • We fail in life because we lack the knowledge of HIS WORD
  • We go sick because we lack the knowledge of HIS WORD
  • We go hungry and thirsty because we lack knowledge of HIS WORD
  • We go poor because we lack knowledge of HIS WORD
  • Some even die because they lack knowledge of HIS WORD on security.


Having been exposed to this truth, dare to know something today about that which concerns you!

In the book of Hosea 4 vs 6, God says the same thing,

'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will forget thy children.'

You see that? So God is still saying the same thing here. This brings to us, that you are a child of God does not means things will all go on automatically. No! A thousand times no!!! You have a responsibility as a child of God to know God's will for your life and believe it in your heart, thereby receiving it as truth. Romans 12 vs 2 tells us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. So as a child of God, you have the whole responsibility of changing your life, by changing your mind!

How do I change my mind?

By replacing your canal thoughts and beliefs with God's WORD, by filling your mind with what God has said concerning every aspect of life, and receiving it as truth. The Bible says, let God be true, and all men be liars - Romans 3 vs 4.

I believe this short piece has been a tremendous blessing to you. Feel free to post your comments and share your testimony(s) on how this word has been a blessing to you.

GOD BLESS YOU
