What’s the Problem?

Posted: February 25, 2015 in Uncategorized

Have you ever been in that place where everything seems to be going right? You know, the job is good, family is good, cash is flowing, and yesterday’s struggles finally seem to be behind you. Sometimes at this point we get complacent. We pray less, play more, and in general forget about God. And then one day life happens. The cash stops flowing, the kids get sick, the company begins laying people off, etc. At that point God suddenly becomes important again. We begin to pray, we read our Bibles, and more likely than not we begin berating ourselves for letting it get to this place and decide that if we make it through this we will not neglect him again. After all, isn’t that the reason all this happened? Here’s the simple answer… No.

God is not withholding His blessing. (Matthew 7:11)
God has done everything He can to meet all of your needs. (Philippians 4:19)

So what’s the problem?

Is it a faith problem? (Matthew 9:29; Matthew 21:22; Mark 5:36; Luke 17:6)

Is it a fear problem? (Isaiah 41:10; 1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 34:4)
Fear can actually allow the thing we dread to come about. (Job 3:25)

Is it an identity problem? (2 Corinthians 5:17,21; Galatians 3:26; 4:6,7)

It’s certainly not a God problem. (Joshua 21:45)

It’s really a trust problem. Why are you grieved over what you did or didn’t do in light of these verses, which by the way most of you did not even take the time read? The truth is, we believe our senses and our circumstances more than we believe God.

We have an uncanny ability to rationalize any problem and find a reason why it happened and we will hang on to that rationalization at the expense of the freedom which is ours in Christ (Galatians 5:1).

My challenge to you is to get in the Word, learn His promises and root them deeply in your heart. Memorize them, meditate on them, read them out loud. Then when difficulties come, stand on the Word (Ephesians 6:13) and don’t allow a lack of faith, fear, doubt, condemnation, or any other rationalization deter you from what He has promised in His Word.
