No one would raise his or her hand voluntarily wanting to have problems, agonies or difficulties in life. It is not in our imaginations or our dreams; we are always after happiness, fun and luxury as much as possible.

Problems in life

I believe no one wants to live in poverty and no one wants to live under great pressure, ridicule or hardships. We all want to have a satisfying life.
However, no matter how many prayers we pray or how careful, conscientious we are in the way we live…issues, problems and difficulties will still come even though we are not inviting them.
This is my own reflection. No matter how I want my life to be so ever smooth, no hassles, no difficult people, no frustrations, no obstacles, and no annoyances around…it will not happen.

There is no one on earth who does not have problems; everyone has their own, even though you see them in their Facebook pages that they have such a great life…troubles do happen once in a while and it is a fact of life.

I also came to this topic now as I have 2 people I knew so well, who are still young to die but recently I have heard they did passed away already. Their ages are around 35 to 45 years old. Who am I to know the reasons why God allow it to happen? One thing I know, these people does not want it to happen…they must just learn to accept them as they have no real power over their own lives.

Now I look or based my reflection at the life of Job in the bible—a man who is righteous but was given misfortunes one after another but in the end he did recover from all those bad things that happened in his life. Here is how I look at problems in life.
1. Problems do not come from God most of the time, it came from Satan however God is the one that auto -approves them----Satan is the one that comes to God and ask if he can wreak havoc in our lives and it is Gods final decision if he would allow that trouble or he will protect us from that problem. That is why we need to seek God in prayer and ask that this trouble be cut, when we are dealing with great crisis.

2. Problems are used by God to get our attention-----Sometimes when things are running smooth we tend to forget the Lord, so it is a way for him to get our attention so we can remember him again.

3. Problems are given for us not to be blinded by success-------Our problems are like something to keep us in balance---to much success can be unhealthy too, we need to see the other side of life.

4. Problems are given to teach us to humble us down------It teaches us to humble, when we have plenty of problems, our spirits our low we have no chance to brag about something.

5. Problems are given to test our character-------God usually gives it as a form of test. He might want to know how we react or respond to our problems.

6. Problems are given for us to gain wisdom--------We can observe that when we have problems like financial problems, we learn to become wiser with money when we don’t have lots of them.

7. Problems are given for us to depend on God-----We can observe a lot of unspiritual people suddenly came to intense prayer when they encounter such tragic events in life.

8. Problems are given for us to have deeper appreciation of life-----when everything is fine we don’t really have the time to see their real value, until such time they are gone, we learn to see their importance.

9. Problems are not permanent they fades after a while-----Problems do come and go. Your problems before are not your problems in the future, they do not last forever.

10. Problems are great teacher-----Problems sometimes become our teacher. We learn from our mistakes. Though it is painful, we sometimes need to learn things the hard way.
