Life will never be free of problems. It doesn’t matter who you are, as far as you exist in this reality you will always have problems.
The real difference between successful people and those not so successful is there ability to tackle life problems.
There is a solution for life problems. In fact, people become rich just by being able to solve life problems.
Spiritually speaking, a problem won’t exist if the solution to it doesn’t exist. Every problem that comes your way, contain within it, it solution.
For a problem to exist means that the solution to that problem exist somewhere in this reality. So, it’s up to you and I to accept that:
(1) Problems will always come our path.
(2) The solution to our problem exist.
(3) To be physically, emotionally and spiritually prepared to deal with life problems is the smartest thing to do.
You might have read to this point and be like: “Yes, I accept that problems are part of life but how should I face them?” Well, my dear reader, every problem is different but there is general rule of thumb or mindset that you must have to successfully deal with life problems.
How You Should Deal With Life Problems
As I have started earlier in this article, problems are part of living in this reality and you will always have some sort of problem as far as you exist in this reality but as Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV:
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
As you can see from the scripture verse by Apostle Paul, the temptation (problem) that will come your path will not be greater than what you are physically and psychologically able to bear.
Any problem you have right now, is there because (I) You can handle it. (II) It’s good for your own emotional and psychological growth and (III) The solution to that problem is possible to attain.
Again, let me repeat this because it is of vital importance: A problem will not come your way if (1) you’re unable to bear it and (2) the solution to it is not attainable. The laws of this Universe will not allow such problem to exist.
For a problem to exist means the solution to it is attainable. It’s up to you to go and find the solution.
How should you deal with life problems then? Firstly, you should deal with them with a positive mindset. See problems as visiting teachers who usually come to teach you something you need to learn and grown.
Secondly, you must know that the solution to your problem is attainable. The problem would not exist if the solution is unattainable.
Thirdly, ask yourself this question: “What is this problem trying to teach me about myself and my life?” Your answer to this question will make everything clear and easier to handle.
And finally, zealously and faithfully search for and go after the solution to your problem. If you follow these steps you will solve any life problem that comes your path.
This is how you should deal with life problems but if you want practical solution for life problems, then keep reading because the scripture verse of Exodus 14:13 provided us with the solution for all life problems.
When you read Exodus 14:13, what did you understand from that scripture verse? Did you read it as most people do, which is like a story in the bible that involves a man named Moses and the children of Israel?
Well, Exodus 14:13 is actually a step-by-step manual of solution for life problems. Luckily for us, the manual is only three steps long and I will be covering those three steps in the subsequent sections of this article.
Practical Step 1 – Do Not Be Afraid
Fear is your number one enemy in everything you’re doing or trying to do because fear is praying for something you do not want.
Whatever you fear will persist until it manifest. You can’t have solution to your life problems if you invest your time and energy in fear.
There is a reason that that the phrases “fear not” was mentioned 365 times in the bible (Depending on the bible version you’re using). It’s because of the power of fear to destroy everything you’ve worked hard for, that’s why the bible verses kept saying “fear not.”
Fear puts you firmly inside the territory of the things you do not want. So, if you want solution for your life problems, your first practical step is to not fear it.
Practical Step 2 – Stand Still
Stand still doesn’t mean you should physically stand still. That will be a crazy idea to obey. Stand still in the context of Exodus 14:13 means to be at peace. It means calmness of mind. It means to know that the solution to your problem exist.
It’s when you stand still in your mind that you can connect to the Universal Mind called God. You can’t connect to God while you being fearful and erratic.
Again, I will repeat, stand still is the act of going into the silence. It is the calmness of mind that precede every form of prayer. You can’t pray without first “standing still” in your mind.
Practical Step 3 – See The Salvation Of The Lord (See The Solution)
It’s at this stage that things get interesting. It is where personal action meets faith.
To see the salvation of the Lord is to imagine the result you desire. It is as simple as that. You must imagine your desired result and stay there mentally until everything around you conform to that image you have visualised in your imagination.
This is the most important step of all the three steps here, so it’s vital you get it absolutely right.
You must imagine yourself being in possession of the solution you desire and this solution must be in your possession in the here and now. Now is the time to give them beauty for ashes. Isaiah 61:3 NKJV.
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! – John 4:35 NKJV.
You must see the solution (salvation of the Lord) you desire happening right now in your imagination. If you imagine the solution will happen in the future, then this won’t work because there will always be tomorrow.
For example, if you are sick, you must visualise in your imagination, that right now, in the same garmet you’re wearing and in the same place you are physically right now, that you have perfect health.
And you must retain this image and feeling, and stay there mentally until everything around you comforms to this image in your imagination.
This article aimed to show you how to quickly arrive at the solution you want for any life problem. I started by detailing how you can face life problems in general and then proceeded to giving practical solutions for dealing with life problems.
With everything covered in this article, am sure that there isn’t any life problem that can shake you off your centre but if by any chance you are still confused as to how to go about solving the problem you are facing right now, here is the simple and effective approach again:
(1) Don’t fear the problem. Fear is your enemy. Don’t let it into your life.
(2) Remain calm, clear your mind and connect to the Source of all things good by entering into the silence. The Silence must precede your prayer or meditation.
(3) During your prayer or meditation, visualise the result you desire and stay in that desired state until everything around you conforms to the image or idea you’ve imagined.
