PROBLEMS CAN BE YOUR FRIEND

Pastor Dwain Faith

Fear can appear in our problems, difficulties and struggles.  Oh how Satan would love to come at your mind when you are facing multiplied problems.

Sometimes the mind can get so weighed down with problems.  discouraged with problems, thinking that others don’t have to go through problems.  Don’t be fooled!  Everyone has their share of problems.  Rather look at problems as your friend.  Some of our greatest leaders felt that there were breakthroughs hidden in problems.  That’s how we must look at life.  Rockefeller is know as saying, “Disaster is spelled OPPORTUNITY.” 

Another great said, “Problems are only opportunities in work clothes.”

Yet another, “Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune, but great minds rise above them.”

Wendel Phillips: “What is defeat, nothing but education, nothing but the first step to something better.”

Make up your mind to overcome 10,000 obstacles.  This is what King David did, so you’ll be in good company!

James 1  (Message bible)

2-4Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
 5-8If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.
