Well 2014 has started and everyone is back at work and school is about to start again for the year. As everything starts we need to understand this universal truth – there is no such thing as a problem-free life. I’m not trying to put a downer on life its just that we all need to learn to have peace in the middle of our problems, or we are never going to have peace — period.
So, why is your life just one problem after another? I believe there are three reasons:
First, Adam choked. He blew it. He and Eve gave into temptation and allowed sin to come into the world, and we’re all paying the consequences. We live in a fallen world.
Second, we have an enemy, and his name is Satan. He wants to mess with our mind, our family, and our health — particularly if you are a follower of Jesus Christ and you’re trying to do the right thing.
On top of all that, we will make our own mistakes. Most of the problems and pain in our life can come from our own poor decisions. When we make dumb decisions, we pay the penalties.
Regardless of why we have the problem that’s unsolvable, unchangeable, unexplainable, or uncontrollable, whether it came from the world, the devil, or ourselves, we still need the same response every time — trust in the loving care of God.
Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything; tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand” (NLT).
That’s the path to peace. situation – Andrew
