CONFRONT THE PROBLEM-1
Joshua 3:13 “And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.”
It is interesting to note that any problem you don’t confront will remain unsurmountable. It doesn’t matter who you are, mountains will remain in front of you unless you challenge it.
The problem then is not with the “problem” it is with the man who has left it intractable. Every issue that is standing on your way have been waiting for you to do something about them all along and I’m glad to let you know that today is that day, when you’ll go head long after them.
In our focal scripture, God told them that the priests who are bearing the ark of the LORD must go ahead of them into the River Jordan first and as soon as the soles of their feet rest in the waters of Jordan it shall give way and become a heap.
In order words, God said the River Jordan will divide once the priest confront it by stepping in. In wrestling bouts, you must step into the ring before you can defeat the opponent. They will not award you a winner’s belt for dancing round the fighting ring.
Many people are professionals when it comes to talking about their problems, describing them to all and sundry. Some even go as far as putting it on Social Media, while others have decided to cooperate with the problems to the extent of calling it their “cross”.
Friend, God is telling us today to quit from such frivolities. He didn’t ask us to talk about the problem, he told us to talk to it. No matter the challenge, face it squarely, taking the bull by the horns. It is not about the problem, it is about you doing something about it.
Let us consider an instance:
