God does not look upon trouble as we do. We must trust in God, for God wants us to stop worrying and not be afraid. Where we see stress he sees opportunities. Where we see crisis, He sees growth and betterment. Life is a series of problem-solving opportunities. God’s purpose in times of crisis and trouble is to teach us lessons and to direct us to the right path. This is the time when we have an important learning opportunity. For most of us, we only learn through pain and failure. If we could just realize that problems, correctly handled, will become character builders.
We become stronger of character when God enlightens us on how to handle problems, as these learning opportunities are necessary. Often it takes a painful situation to make us change our ways. Sometimes, the best solution is not the one we are praying for. Put the problem in God’s hands and accept what he has in store for you. Someday you will look back and see why things had to turn out the way they did! We need to all take a moment to be thankful for the things we have, and try not to dwell on those things we cannot control. We only need to trust that God will take care of everything according to His plan.
