God Wants Your Problems
Let your difficulties be opportunities for God’s control.
Just about every problem you worry about is outside your control, which gives you the perfect opportunity to give your problems to God.
Do you have a health issue you’re dealing with, and there’s nothing the doctors can do? Give your health to God. Do you lack confidence for that upcoming test, even though you’ve studied all you can? Give your test to God. Is your boss making life miserable for you despite your best efforts? Give your job to God.
At their worst, problems cause us to worry. At their best, problems test our faith. Do we trust God enough to let Him control everything in our lives? Are we willing to give Him our big problems as well as the small stuff? He’s willing to take control of our difficulties if we just let Him.
But God will use this persecution to show his justice. 2 Thessalonians 1:5
