FACING PROBLEMS

The problems we face in day-to-day living are legitimate concerns. However, many people insist on facing problems in their own human strength. They think that being emotionally strong and self-sufficient will make everything work out. They may succeed by sheer force , but not without paying a severe price.

 

When we try to shoulder the emotional impact of a problem on our own, the results are feelings of anxiety and being out of control. Paul writes in Philippians 4: 6-7: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

 

Anxiety divides our minds and makes it virtually impossible to concentrate on the things of God. We become consumed by ourselves and our problems. When this happens, there is little room left over for the concerns of others.

 

Jesus said: “Which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life pan?…Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin…O men of little fait: do not be anxious then, saying, ‘with what shall we clothe ourselves?’ For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things (Matthew 6: 27-32).”

 

When it seems that our world is collapsing around us, we gain an inner, abiding peace that withstands the trials and tribulations of life by placing our trust and faith in Jesus Christ. He is our steadfast, eternal embrace (Hebrews 6: 19-20).

 

MORE CHRISTIAN ONE-LINERS

  • Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.
  • If a church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.
  • We’re called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.
  • God himself doesn’t propose to judge a person until he is dead. So, why should you?
  • Some minds are like concrete. Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
