Problems are certain to come our way in this life, followed by the proverbial question ‘Why Me ?’
When problems present themselves, the first question we should ask is, do we believe God can help us resolve our problems? The overwhelming response should be,,, YES…
God loves us, he is always there for us, providing refuge and strength, ever-present security, and peace of mind. God’s power is complete and his ultimate victory is certain. He will not fail to rescue those who love and serve him. He will give us the necessary wisdom and grace to deal with all our troubles that we may experience.
Problems occur for teaching purposes, to test our faith, our patience, develop our hope and trust, grow our character, and find solutions.
God allows trials to come our way so he can draw near to us. Do we seek God when we are on the mountain? We diligently seek him when we are in the valley. Don’t reject or be angry when trials come our way, reach out and rejoice that we have an opportunity to walk and fellowship with our Heavenly Father.
