Christian, I have good news upon which you can rely. Whatever the situation might be, God is in control. God always hears your prayers. God always has THE answer for ALL of your troubles. GOD WILL PROVIDE!!
The Bible records that the Apostle Paul suffered from a chronic physical affliction. We aren’t told the nature of the affliction but we know that it was a chronic condition that often kept Paul from his work as a tent maker. Paul pleaded three times with God (2 Corinthians 12:7-8) to take the affliction away, but God chose not to heal Paul telling him instead “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9a). Oh my! His power, that is … God’s power, is made perfect in our weakness! Oh that I could say along with Paul: “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:9b).
Facing your troubles and stressful circumstances on our own is futile. I have heard both professional counselors and amateur psychologists say that the solution to dealing with all of our anxieties is to improve our coping skills. Instead of just learning to cope, why not just “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5-6). God knows! God cares! God Will Provide!
