There are no problems I encounter that can leave me utterly hopeless.
This is part of my manifesto series.You can download my Fully Satisfied Manifesto for FREE here.
We, as children of God, always have hope in our possession.
Problems are daily occurrences but they are not insurmountable. The problem of problems is that we must know where to look for answers. We have several options.
All these are valid places to seek answers to problems. The problems that we have will always have a solution. Don’t be afraid to seek out solutions in uncommon places.
5-8 If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.
JAMES 1:5-8, MESSAGE
The primary place we should turn to find solutions for our problems is to God. He loves helping us solve problems.
God saw our problem of sin. God provided the solution of grace.
That’s how we see it. But the truth is that God is so good at solving problems that He solves them before they happen!
18-21 Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb. And this was no afterthought. Even though it has only lately—at the end of the ages—become public knowledge, God always knew he was going to do this for you. It’s because of this sacrificed Messiah, whom God then raised from the dead and glorified, that you trust God, that you know you have a future in God.
1 PETER 1:18-21, MESSAGE
So, know that you will face new problems every day. But, rest assured that the problems you face have a solution!
Problems push us to solutions. Solutions make us better people. By us being better people we are able to help others solve their problems. It’s the Circle of Life.
