Daily we need to examine ourselves to see that we are living according to the precepts of God. “Let a man examine himself to see if he be of the faith.” (I Corinthians 13:5)
We can all take the easy excuse to get out of a problem by saying, “The devil made me do it” but the devil isn’t responsible for your actions, you are. If something is wrong in your life, fix it and don’t stay shackled to the problem.
 Look at the land of Israel today as an example to us that we are God’s personal property with a promise. We have the ability to fix issues.
The land of Israel today is possessed by the blood covenant God gave to Abraham in Genesis 12. We need to continue that blood covenant today. The power of the Lamb’s blood covers our sin when we confess and is our saving grace when we accept Jesus as our Savior. It gives us supernatural strength. We are driven by His power.
The blood of the Lamb over the doorpost of your soul has liberated you when you accept Christ against the prince of darkness who is the enemy of your soul.
Do you realize you are set free from satan’s kingdom which has no control over you?
Because the children of Israel had the blood of the lamb over their doorposts, they were able to cross the red sea to freedom. God can do the same for you.
Do not get to the other side of the sea and just wander around in the wilderness and stop there. Look at the problem within yourself, examine it, and walk through your wilderness quickly with God’s help.
 Unfortunately,  the children of Israel focused on their problems and were held in the wilderness for 40 years. Yikes!
 I can often see how a problem weighs me down and then I get stuck in my sadness and sometimes stay there longer than necessary. Thankfully now, I go to God right away and deal with it with Him.
Go to God to solve your problem sister.. God’s authority will prevail always. Don’t try to do in the flesh what only God can do in the spirit. He has your every need already accounted for, go to His Word.
I heard a message one time which stated “God wants something in us than something through us than something for us. Oh, how true this is.
 He is working on your life of service to Him. Sometimes problems might be sent to force us to do something for ourselves, to build us as leaders.
“Let a man examine himself to see if he be of the faith.” (I Corinthians 13:5)
