2 Truths About Your Problems

July 24, 2012

Lie #1: Someday I will not have problems.

Result of lie #1: If I believe someday I won’t have problems then I’m unable to embrace today because I’m anticipating a future that will be problem-free.

Jesus, “In this world you will have trouble.” (John 16:33)

I will always have problems. You will always have problems.

Truth #1: You will always have problems

Lie #2: Problems are my enemy.

Result of lie #2: If problems are my enemy, I will live trying to eliminate them rather than learn from them.

“The storms in my life have become workshops where I can practice my faith in God’s sovereignty.” Jill Briscoe.

God uses your problems to shape you.

James 1:2-4 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

Truth #2: Your problems have a purpose

My Pastor, Daniel Hahn, recently taught on this. You can listen to it HERE. So relevant. So helpful.
