Do you have a life without problems? Yes? Then you have a problem! Because problems come as an in-built feature in life’s travel package.
Think about it. If you did not have problems, you would not:
* learn how to solve them
* look for a power higher than yourself who could help you solve them
* see God’s power to help you overcome your challenges
* thank God for what He did for you
* be in a position to glorify Him.
And the very purpose of our existence is to glorify God. “Wait a minute. What’s that got to do with Jesus walking on water?”
When Jesus walked on the waves of the sea 2,000 years ago (Matthew 14:25), he wasn’t just defying the laws of Nature. He was actually telling his disciples that “No matter what sea of troubles you face in your life, it’s all under my feet. I am in command.” And because that incident was recorded in the Bible, it was meant for you and me as well!
Life is all about change. They say that the only thing that is constant is change. Believe me, even problems change. Today it’s your finances, tomorrow it’s your health, then it’s your relationships…But there’s one more thing that does not change – and that’s God’s love for you. As the Bible says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). And if you have Jesus living in your heart, “no weapon formed against you shall prosper.” (Isaiah 54:17) Just claim the Bible’s promise:
“He who is in you (Jesus) is greater than he who is in the world (the Devil).” (1 John 4:4) And the One who is within you has the power and willingness to help you overcome each and every challenge in your life!
In the next post you’ll discover how you can “walk on water.” So keep reading.
