We often wish we could escape troubles – the pain of grief, loss, sorrow and failure. God promises to be “close to the broken hearted” to be our source of courage and to carry us through our problems. When trouble strikes, don’t get frustrated with God.

Instead, admit that you need God’s help and thank Him for being by your side. Problems cause us to trust God. Problems force us to pray. A man on his knees can see more and further into the future than a man on a mountain top.

Problems are tests. It is easy to obey God when everything is going grand. When the bills are paid, the children are healthy, your marriage is great. But what about obeying God’s voice when you are in the middle of the most severe problem of your life? Your problems will never be greater than God’s power – for with God, nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:37). Problems, tribulation, distress cannot separate us from God – the problem Solver. “For in the day of trouble, He will keep me safe in His dwelling, He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock” (Psalm 27:5).

The secret of solving problem is Temperance and Discipline.

Temperance is self-control and the absence of self-control is the root of our problems.

“It is better to be patient (self-control) than powerful. It is better to win control over yourself than over whole cities” (Prov 16:32 GNB)

Discipline is the determined will to do anything. Obedience brings blessings and disobedience brings consequences. You may be brilliant, but without the discipline you are finished. You may be wealthy, but without discipline, poverty is certain. You may be powerful, but without discipline you will live your latter years saturated in shame and disgrace.
