How Do I Deal with the Problems of Life?

In dealing with the problems of life, the Bible teaches the following:

1-Set you life before God and trust Him to help you solve it

In Philippians 4:6, we are taught, “Do not be anxious [do not worry] about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Jesus is inviting us to bring all of our needs and concerns to Him in prayer rather than worry about them. We are taught not to worry about our physical needs like clothing and food for our heavenly Father will take care of us (Matthew 6:25-34).

In 1 Peter 5:7, God Word says, “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” Why does God want to take on our problems? Because He cares for us. When we give God our problems, He promises to give us the peace which transcends all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

2-Identify your problem

When you approach a situation, You can ask questions such as, “What is wrong? What are the symptoms/conditions? If you are not clear, pray that the Lord may help you identify your problem. “Search me, O God…and see if there be any hurtful way in me” (Psalm 139:3,24). Only God, who knows our problems, can successfully lead us safely. We all need a perfect Guide.

3-Seek God’s wisdom

In faith, you must approach God for wisdom, direction, and light. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind” (James 1:5-6).

4-Analyze the causes and set out several possible solutions.

Jesus said, Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?” (Luke 14:31). “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?” (Luke 14:28).

5-Devise and implement a plan.

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps” (Proverbs 16:9). It is important for a person to plan wisely for his future life, but all such plans should be done according to God’s Word and His law in order that he may be sure they are in line with the divine standards.

6-Work hard to carry on your plan.

The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute” (Proverbs 12:24). Slacking brings poverty and need instead of promised comfort. Hard working men, who use their time wisely, are sure to excel above those who are lazy.

7-Make sure you’re daily connected to God and obedient to His laws that you may claim His promises of success.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper” (Psalm 1:1-3). God promises the godly man: to have a useful life, producing the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22, 23; Hebrews 12:11); to have a vigorous life (Psalms 92:12, 13); and to succeed in his work.
