God uses our problems

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 May 2024

Isaiah 49:16
‘See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…’

2254How we handle problems is very crucial point.  We know that problems are part of life and we know that we cannot escape them.  The issue is how will we respond or handle the problems.  

If we respond to the problems by becoming bitter and offended, this will eventually destroy us. But if we will allow God to help us as we go through the problems, I believe we will come out on the other side as a better person. Often times when we face problems we still have the opportunity to make choices.  These choices are the most important key to stepping through the problem to a point of breakthrough.

God uses the problems that we are facing to be able to work in our lives. Primarily God is interested in our hearts.  We need to respond wisely to the problems that life brings our way and not get into a reactionary mode. 

Sometimes one problem can lead to a new solution that could change our lives.  One thing that you can be sure of is that God knows what you are facing and what you are going through.  He wants to use those things and turn then out for good.  

Romans 8:28 We are assured and know that all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

God is bale to turn the most desperate problem around into something good. God’s intentions are clear.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
