PROBLEMS?

Jeremiah 29: 11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord.
Every day we make decisions that are either good or bad. The good decisions always give us satisfaction, whereas the bad ones do upsets us and we get into a lot of turmoil. During those moments we think we have totally messed up and it will take a lot of hard work to get out. That is true in some ways but that process of getting out will make you what you should really be. Your character will develop to enable you to achieve in life. The hardship will help us to be wise and propel us to fulfil the goals with style.
The Bible says that Jesus gives peace and therefore we should learn to surrender the situation to Him by prayer. (Prayer is just talking to God) (John 14: 27) God wants to take care of every area of your life, even the smallest detail. We are so valuable to Him. Since He knows the plans for us, that are good, He will direct us.
In Psalms 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Our desires originate from God. Remember that God has placed His desires for you within your heart. He put the plans for your life within you when you were born and they have never left you. No matter what happens in life, you’ll never get away from what God has put in your heart to do.
My friend, our heavenly Father cares for us in the same way as He lays out His plans for us. We are on His heart all the time as He carefully considers and makes plans for every aspect of life, both big and small. And the very thought of you puts a smile on His face because He knows that the plans He has for you are plans to bless you.
So no matter what problems you are facing right now, you can rest in His love for you. There is no problem that is too big for Him to handle. He is not just a God Almighty; He is also your heavenly Father who loves you!
