In Light of Who God Is

GOD IS OMNIPOTENT: He is able to solve my problem (Eph. 3:20). Nothing is too hard for Him (Gen. 18:14) and no problem is too big. Through Him I can do all things (Phil. 4:13).

GOD IS OMNISCIENT: He knows all about my problem and He knows its solution. Also He knows how much I can bear (1 Cor. 10:13).

GOD IS WISE: He allowed this problem in my life because he knows what is best for me. He also knows the best solution (James 1:5-7).

GOD IS OMNIPRESENT: As I face this problem He is with me and in me (Gal. 2:20). He will never leave me nor forsake me (Heb. 13:5). He never asked me to solve the problem by myself (Exodus 14:14). The Living God is my Helper (Heb. 13:5-6; Isaiah 41:10; Matthew 28:20).

GOD IS IMMUTABLE (never changes): The same God that saved me (solved my biggest problem) is able to help me in whatever lesser problem I must face. The God that helped David, Daniel, Paul, etc., in their problems is the same God that is able to help me. I can always count on God being God (Heb. 13:8).

GOD IS SOVEREIGN: He's in complete control of the situation. He allowed this problem to come into my life and it's in His hands (Rom. 8:28).

GOD IS FAITHFUL: As I trust God for the solution to this problem He will not fail me. His promises cannot fail. I can count on God in this situation (2 Cor. 1:20). God is absolutely trustworthy, dependable and reliable.

GOD IS TRUE: I can claim the promises in God's Word because God does not and cannot lie (Titus 1:2)! What He says, that will He do (Rom. 4:21)!

GOD IS ETERNAL: As I view my problem in light of eternity, it becomes quite insignificant. See Deuteronomy 33:27.

GOD IS LOVE: God wants to communicate Himself to me in this problem. There is no problem, no matter how great, that can separate me from His love (Rom. 8:35-39). He wants only His highest and best for me.

GOD IS GOOD: In the midst of my problem and difficulty, God wants to make me more like His Son (Rom. 8:28-29). No matter the difficulty, I can praise Him for His goodness (Psalm 107:8,15).

GOD IS RIGHTEOUS: In allowing this problem to come into my life, God did what was right (Gen. 18:25). God makes no mistakes!

GOD IS JUST: God is absolutely fair in all that He does, including sending this problem my way.

In the midst of pressures and problems, how conscious are you of the living God?

"And they that know thy name (know who God really is)
will put their trust in Thee" (Psalm 9:10).
