Please give me a few minutes of your time, let’s talk.

How to overcome every problem

The first thing to note is that you and your problem are two different things. You were made in the image and likeness of God. Your problem was placed there to test your ability to have dominion and show the God nature that you possess (Gen 1: 26).

Are you aligning yourself with my point of view?

Regardless of what you are going through it is important that you understand that your problem is a problem and you are you. You are not your problem.

Before it gets confusing, allow me to take you to the bible.The very first miracle Jesus performed was at a wedding, they had a problem, the wine was finished. Jesus asked them to bring jars filled with water and he turned water to wine (He showed his dominion over the wine). Lazarus was dead for days, so dead he was beginning to smell. Jesus stepped in and said ‘Lazarus come forth’ (He showed his dominion over death)

How to overcome every problem

So what’s my point?

You need to face that problem and understand that you have dominion over it. So yes you don’t have a job that’s a problem face it. You haven’t been able to pass your exam that is a problem, face it. The landlord is knocking on your door for the rent that is a problem, face it!

Yeah yeah, I can see the way you are looking at me now. So you’re thinking, ‘is it so easy to face that problem?’

My answer is NO and YES!

No, because you need to build competence before you can take dominion. Building competence is sometimes not an easy task.

How to overcome every problem

A police man stands on the highway and lifts his hand at an oncoming vehicle and the vehicle comes to a halt just before it gets to him. It appears that he has dominion by simply raising his hand but if a civilian tries that, the vehicle might run him over.

So what makes the difference?

It begins with the mindset, the police man has a mindset that tell him the authority he has. The uniform he is wearing tells the oncoming vehicle that they have to respect the police and the police always has a partner, most times they don’t go to the highway alone, they have a back-up.

In the same manner, the first step is to let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus (Phil 2: 5). And be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Rom. 12:2). You were made to have dominion over all things, every problem (regardless of the name) is a thing and you should have dominion over it.

Next is to wear the correct uniform. In our case, you should wear the whole armor of God (I did an entire series on this kindly read it here) and then never go before a problem alone. Just like the police officer on the highway make sure that when you face the problems of life you have the Holy Spirit with you. He is your partner on the field.

YES, everything is first hard before it becomes easy.

How to overcome every problem

The solution to your problem always starts from within you, build competence then exert dominion.

Jesus needed to feed five thousand, he used the 5 loaves and 2 fishes that were available around him. Moses needed to cross the red sea he used the rod that was in his hand. Samson defeated the army with the jaw bone of an ass that was just beside him.

What you need to overcome that problem is never too far from your reach.

In conclusion, you need to understand that you are not your problem. God will take care of you, he has promised to give his angels charge over you (Ps 91:11). Don’t forget to take it to God in prayer. He will give you revelation, almost always, the start point for the solution is within your reach. It could be a relationship, a skill, a location etc but God keeps the solution close to the problem solver. Build competence by changing your mindset about the problem, put on the whole armor of God, have the Holy Spirit as your partner and take dominion over that problem.
