It’s not wise to accept problems as a normal part of life. If you ask certain people about the problems they are facing they will say… “I am dealing with my demons” or “I am coping with my problems”. It’s as if they have given in to the fact that the problem will always be there.
Imagine if a person gets diagnosed with a disease and the person says, “I can cope with it”. That means that they can live with it or they can handle it. But that in no way means that they can or will solve it. This person is supposed to want to be healed and fight for healing, but when they are defeated in their mind, they will be defeated everywhere else as well.
Stop saying I’m dealing with my problems. Problems come to overcome one by one.
A man brought his son who was very sick to Jesus, and Jesus asked the father a question;
So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?”
And he said, “From childhood. Mark 9:21
The Lord Jesus asked this man “how long”? And that is the real question… How long have you been divorced? How long have you had this sickness? How long has your son been in that gang? How long has your husband been seeing another woman? How long?
Jesus asked the question and gave the solution right away. He cast out the evil force that was causing the problem in the boy, and the boy returned to normal. From that day, the father no longer had to cope with the problem of his son, because the son was set free.
God wants to do the same in your life. He wants to set you free from the problems, so that you don’t have to cope (accept) them anymore.
May the God of the Bible bless you
