There are times in life when we are faced by seemingly insoluble problems. So we work hard at finding a solution. If the problem involves others we try to persuade them to our way of thinking, we disagree, we argue, and perhaps friendships are put at risk as a result.
Whilst we’re struggling to find a solution, we forget that God already has the answer. And the wise thing to do is to stop for a while, pray, and hand over the problem to Him.
As we let things rest for a while, God will suggest a reasonable solution to what irks us.
I know, this will sound strange, humourous even, to an un-believer. But the realities of life are that God knows about every inconceivable problem that we can imagine; and even those outwith our imagination. And if He knows about the problems, He also knows their solutions.
He wouldn’t be an omnipotent all-knowing God otherwise.
Our hesitation to hand over our problems to Him, is itself a problem of our own making – not His.
