Problems as Opportunities


Emotions are grave diggers

If you perceive an obstacle in your path as a problem, you will nurture negative emotions in respect to that problem- frustration, fear, anger, hopelessness, despair, and depression. These emotions are grave diggers in that they carve out a pit of failure and death in which to bury you.

On the other hand, if somehow the Holy Spirit can give you the revelation of it, if you can see by the inspiration of The Almighty that the obstacle is God’s challenge- you have received a ‘Kingdom Attitude’ in which a spiritual perspective is released-

faith, hope, confidence, peace, rest, encouragement, joy, thanksgiving, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and power.

Positive emotions

These positive emotions (the fruit of the Spirit), energize you and propel you through, over, out, and above the obstacle, providing strength and victory.

The only problems in the world are problems that are perceived as problems. When the problem ceases (in your mind) to be a problem, then the problem is no longer a problem.

Rise above it

Although the problem may still exist outwardly, yet when the problem is no longer a problem to you, you have risen above it, overcome it, and conquered it!

“I assure you that whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea’—and doesn’t waver but believes that what is said will really happen—it will happen.” (Matthew 11:23)
