    This was a word that my spiritual Mom shared with us as we were having Bible study. She spoke these words to us "don't focus on the problem, focus on the promise."


    I believe when we focus on the problem, we are driven to a place of being disgruntled, we start complaining about our circumstances, and by revelation of the Holy Spirit we give the enemy access to our lives and the powers of darkness begin to work against us. 


    It also, hinders the work of the Holy Spirit, and causes us to stay in the wilderness longer than necessary. 


    We must learn how to go through with a praise, proclaiming the victory with every step we take. 


    I am reminded of the story of King Jehoshaphat, when he heard the evil report that the Ammonite and the  Moabite armies were coming against him and the children of Israel.


    Jehoshaphat became fearful, but God told him through the prophet that they would not have to fight in this battle. As they obeyed the commandment of the Lord, by giving him praise, God set an ambush and the enemies began to fight against themselves. 


    The Lord had given them the victory, by confounding their enemies. What a great lesson we can learn from this Old Testament story. We can praise the Lord because He has already defeated the enemy of our souls. 


    We must remember that the enemy wants to prevent us from receiving the promises of God. That is why we must beware of the enemy of frustration which causes us to begin to complain instead of praising God for what He has already done for us.


    The Lord is faithful to His Word, what He spoke, it will surely come to pass. We must learn how to speak the word only, and see the salvation of the Lord; knowing without a doubt His Word is true!
