It Is Well
Updated: Jan 16
The problems of life are inevitable; they will come without warning. Sometimes the problems seem not to go away but get worse with time. What this does to many of us is that we grow weary and give up before we receive our breakthrough. The scripture says in Galatians 6:9, "let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." The keyword in this scripture is "proper time." Even though the problems that we may face seem impossible, God may use that problem to shape our character, and if we do not give up, we will get our breakthrough at the "proper set time" of God.
God does not work according to man's time. God has His set season and set times of doing things. Ecclesiastes chapter three, verse one (Eccl. 3:1) says, "there is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven."
The problems we experience in life are also solved by having faith in God. The Apostle Mark stated in Mark 11:1, "have faith in God." With the eyes of faith, we can see God turning our problems around. Having faith in God changes our perspective on the problems we go through. It is said that every problem has an expiration date. Even though what we may be experiencing will seem like an eternity, it has an end. In the midst of our unending ordeal, God gives us rest.
Sometimes we have to rise and decree and declare God's word over our problems. As indicated in Job 22:28, "thou shall decree a thing, and it shall be established." So many times, we are waiting for God to do something about our situation; meanwhile, God is also waiting for us to do something.
It is expected of us to have confidence in God so that whatever problem we may face, we can trust God to ensure that it is well with us. Nothing will be wasted in our lives because God will use every problem for his glory.
