Getting to the Root of the Problem

Getting to the Root of the Problem

This was laid on my heart…I’m heartbroken that my brothers and sisters in Christ let Satan defeat us on a daily basis. Unforgiveness breeds bitterness, bitterness breeds bondage and oppression and so on. You guys know the scripture…John 10:10, “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.” Now read on and be blessed!!

2 Corinthians 2:11, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

If somebody shot a bullet into your home one day to attempt to kill your family… would you go rushing after each bullet trying to stop it? Or would you grab your gun and kill the guy who’s doing the shooting? Which would be wiser? We need to stop fighting Satan’s bullets, and begin to attack the spirits who are holding the guns! If your basement kept flooding, would you keep mopping up the water, week after week, or would you dig deeper to find the reason as to why the basement was getting flooded in the first place? It would be rather pointless to keep addressing the symptoms, without looking at where the problem is coming from, wouldn’t it? That same principle is true in the spiritual realm as well. If we have a spiritual problem, let’s find the root of that problem and treat the root. Once the root is cleaned up, the problem won’t be returning and causing more problems!

You will never solve the root of the problem by treating the symptom!
