“So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God” (Lk12:21)

Much of the New Testament deals with crisis. Several letters (epistles) were written specifically to deal with problems like divorce, lawsuits, sickness, death, division’s, heresies, immorality, disorder, and marriage and family problems. There is hardly a problem today that Christians face that is not covered in the pages of Scripture. If we really want to know God’s will for our lives in dealing with a particular problem, the Bible will guide us to the answer.

The key to handling our problems is learning to trust what God tells us to do about them. Too many people want to make their own decisions and then ask God to “bless” what they have already decided. Instead we need to figure out what God wants us to do and do it with the confidence that He will bless it. Our obedience to His commands places us in a position to receive His blessings in our lives.

Our willingness to trust God in every circumstance of life depends on our confidence in His love. All uncertainty on our part is an expression of distrust in His love. When we fail to trust Him with our problems we are really distrusting His sincerity and integrity. Because He truly is an all-loving God with our best interests in mind we must learn to trust His love for us in spite of our circumstances. (Ed Hindson)

PRAYER LINE: O Father, I feel You calling to bigger and better things. And I must respond. Help me leave my littleness behind and open my heart to the big. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
