God’s View Of Our Problems-Part 9

May 13, 2014


Proverbs 20:27“The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the inner depths of his being.”

You see because we are a child of God, the spirit of God is within us. In our time of problems He lovingly turns on His spotlight and lets us see ourselves the way we really are. Problems cause us to take a deeper look at where we are spiritually and where we are in God’s word. How many times have you turned to your Bible during difficulties in your life, when you did not know where to turn? Problems draw us to God’s word.  My friend, there are things we will only learn as we go through problems in this life that we cannot learn any other way. Problems are God’s way of getting our attention because He has something He wants to say to us, something He wants to show us, or a change of direction for us. Our problems are never wasted they are always opportunities for greater intimacy with God.
