19 And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.
20 And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.
21 And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the Lord, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.
22 So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.

There are foundational problems which have the capacity of hindering the progress of a person’s life. Some people ignorantly struggle with such problems and are unable to overcome them until they die. This will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. The story in today’s Bible reading is a good illustration of foundational problems and their consequences. The men of the city of Jericho confessed to Elisha that the situation of their city was pleasant but its water was bad and its ground barren (2nd Kings 2:19). Jericho’s problems started when Joshua cursed it after its fall (Joshua 6:26).
However, God divinely intervened through Elisha, His prophet, and life was restored to it. Are you a victim of foundational problems? I decree that an end has come to those problems today in Jesus’ Name. Another example of foundational problems is seen in the case of Abiathar, who was a descendent of Eli. He was stripped of his priestly office because of a sin he knew nothing about. Narrating his plight, 1st Kings 2:27 says:
“So Solomon thrust out Abiathar from being priest unto the LORD; that he might fulfil the word of the LORD, which he spake concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh.”

As a result of errors made by Abiathar’s ancestors, Solomon
removed him from being a priest and sent him on force retirement to his home
town of Anathoth. The story was told of a slave woman who was maltreated during
her pregnancy by the freedom women of the household. After she was delivered of
her child, those women lied to her that she must not eat food seasoned with
salt for a certain period of time. Although she sensed it was a gang-up to
further maltreat her, she agreed not to eat salted food for the stipulated
pronounced a curse that from that time forward, every woman newly delivered of
a child in that household would also not eat salted food for a stipulated
amount of time, otherwise such a woman would lose her child. The freeborn women
took her words lightly, thinking it was a joke.
Some of them were delivered of their children and went ahead to eat meals with salt, only for their children to die the following day. From then on, no woman who married into that household could eat salt after having children until a certain amount of time passed.
They automatically became victims of a foundational problem. However, when one of such women became born again, the power in the Blood of Jesus Christ destroyed the yoke of this curse and she was able to eat salted food after delivering her children without any evil consequence. This is what Jesus Christ can do for whatever believes in His Name. If you will believe today, you will no longer be a victim of foundational problems.
