Returning from a wonderful evening along with my two-house guests found an unsettling discovery upon opening the front door. The entire house had standing water except for the dining room and kitchen, but I was not prepared for the next discovery where both bathroom tubs had raw sewage, it was very unsightly and unsettling. The linoleum flooring and carpeting were all ruined! Signaling the first episode of a foundational problem which has plagued my household for more than thirty years. When things were functioning at their optimum this awful problem would erupt and cause the entire home to be in disarray, shutting down the plumbing system. Meanwhile, Abba Father has had me on a special assignment to pray about this foundational problem. There were times when it felt that all my strength was gone and I could not pray another prayer; just then these words would speak to me, “Slack not your riding!” At one point this foundational problem caused so many other problems, I just simply stopped praying and all hope was quickly drifting away but Yahweh is so merciful and full of compassion, the Word awakened me from the book of Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy GOD: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Still, I remained upon my bed non- responsive until these words rang out from Abba, Father, “Margaret, get up! I need you to function.” Immediately, I sat up in the bed then stood on my feet and responded, “Father, forgive me. I will go and continue to do Your bidding!” The prayers continued sometimes all night until 6 a.m. and would proceed throughout the day.
Recently, I felt a shift in my home and followed instructions for two weeks consecutively to be in prayer at 9 a.m. One morning while on my knees praying an unseen hand stood me on my feet and directed me to prayer walk the entire house. Upon entering the hallway, it was as if it was in the sewer, the foul scent emanated – the full height of it. Incredibly the prayers continued until after 2 p.m., that afternoon but what I did not know was that while in prayer the foundational problem had erupted yet again but this time divine intervention was holding back the devastating effects. The Word spoke from the book of Isaiah 59:19 “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.”
Wherever you are on your journey have you been experiencing vexing problems in your home? Is your marriage all torn up and does your children seem estranged? On your job, has the problems intensified? Pause for a moment, take a deep breath in……. now breathe out……. more questions. When your problems are no more and everything is going well, do those same problems reoccur? Do you make progress only to experience ending up at the same place you started? While you are thinking on these questions just maybe your problems could be foundational. Could it be the problem or problems are a result of what your ancestors have done?
Let us pause right now to pray. Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus breathe on your beloved one reading this message and unlock the mystery behind the scenes which are causing chaos and confusion. Father, remove all blinders, along with deception. In Jesus name, unveil your truth and sever all lies. For Your Word declares in the Gospel of John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Amen.
Listen, when my foundational problem first surfaced and I stood looking at what seemed like a flood compounded with raw sewage in both bathtubs; silently I said to the Lord, “Is it possible for us to bathe in these tubs again?” The carpeting and flooring were destroyed, and all our house guests’ belongings were soaking wet!
You may have asked Abba Father if He could use you again because of where you have been and for all that you have experienced with reoccurring foundational problems. You may have ventured far to get away from the vexing problem only to have it follow you! It is only when you locate the root cause of your problems which could indeed be generational. You must sever the root through the leading of The Holy Spirit in consistent, persistent, relentless prayer and fasting. The Word is speaking from the Mark 9:28-29 (28)” And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, why could not we cast him out?” (29)” And he said unto them, this kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”
Through the work of The Holy Spirit my husband walked to a specific area in the yard and to dig in the ground where the foundational plumbing is, and he discovered a “T/ Pipe” had broken off and it had caused the vexing and distressing problem to my entire household for over thirty years. Yes, we dealt with all the symptoms but had not realized the problem was foundational. Take note, it was not the Plumber, who discovered the root cause, it was my husband. I hear it resounding, only you can locate the cause of your problems by asking Abba Father to show you, who in your genealogy may have messed up and done evil and did not repent? Could it be that Yahweh wants you to stand in the gap to break it off not only you but off your entire generation and even for the generations to come so they too will be free of strongholds and foundational problems? Listen, my household has now been set free from the foundational problem that had plagued us for over thirty-two years O Hallelujah! Symbolically, I hear the words of the Psalmist speaking from Psalm 124 (1)”If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;” (2)”If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us;” (3)”Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:” (4)”Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:” (5)”Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.” (6)” Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us a prey to their teeth.” (7)” Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:” (8)” Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”
I hear Isaiah 41:10 speaking again, can you hear it? “Fear not; for I am with thee be not dismayed; for I am thy GOD: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Could it be that Yahweh is calling you to get up right where you are and deal with your foundational problems?
