God’s View Of Our Problems-Part 1

May 1, 2014


2 Corinthians 4:17“For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,”

God prunes us. He dips His pruning shears in love and then He prunes us back. Sometimes this is with problems we are having in life. You see all of us have had problems in life. There have been problems in our past and there will be problems in our future. There are all kinds of problems! Many of the problems we encounter we bring on ourselves by responding to life the wrong way. Some problems God himself engineers to make us more like Jesus Christ. You can know this…that whether the problems are brought on by ourselves or by others…whatever the problems may be…God will use it to conform us to the image of Jesus, if we will only see if from His perspective and respond the right way to the problem. Yes, sometimes it can be hard on this earth but compared to eternity, what we are experiencing now is just a moment in time. The bottom line is this…God uses our problems to make us more like Jesus.
