Have you ever met or had friends who were twins? They were born on the exact same day (almost the same minute) and share many similar traits. They each grow up together and learn most things at the same time. Many of them are so familiar with each other that they feel strange when they are apart. It’s like they are paired together for life.
Funny enough, that’s how many people are with their problems. The problem in their life is like an identical twin. It has been there for most, if not all of their life and has grown together with them. The biggest issue is that it has become a “normal” part of life to them. They can not even see themselves without that problem.
For example, many have been sick for so long that they simply say, “my sickness”, others have been broke for so long that they say, “I am broke”, others have had so many problems in their family that they say, “I don’t have a family”. This is the reality of so many people that it is a shame.
The Word of God says,
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7
If you think that the problem will always be with you, then it will. If you think that there is no solution for you, then there will not be. If you think that you have no chance, then you don’t. However you think, that is how your life will turn out.
So what is the solution, you may ask? Stop making room for this problem as a permanent part of your life. And start to reject it and call upon God with faith that He wants to and will remove it. And you will see how soon you will get rid of this “twin” of yours.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
