Some certain life problems tend to persist, sometimes for years; they may take root before we are fully aware of them. Does the bible give us the wisdom to resolve such persistence and frustrating problems….consider some examples and let see how this helps….
1. MISUSE OF ALCOHOLIC
A friend Favour, felt that her anxieties were pushing her toward over drinking. The bible does not condemn the moderate use of alcoholic, but it says: “Do not be among those who drink too much wine.” (Prov 23:20). Misuse of alcohol has been linked to serious health problems, broken and damaged relationships, and millions of untimely deaths each year. Much of this trouble could be avoided if people follow the bible’s wise advice.
Favour realize that as much as she drank alcohol, it was not solving her anxiety…. She said ….”I applied the wisdom of Philippians 4:6-7, which says ‘Do not be anxious over everything, but let your petition be made known to God.
Each night when she felt her thoughts racing and anxiety rising, she petitioned God.
Try to defined all your feelings, including anger, hurt, and despair, and keep pleading with God for a way to feel more positive.
Never think alcohol can help you end your problems because u shall surely get back to it when that alcoholic flare is gone …
Few problems on earth are cause by heartbreaks and misery. This do occur because of some certain live style that is not pleasant. Like:
Inappropriate flirting and pornography: Thinking that you are the most beautiful or the most handsome girl or boy in the area is an inscription to a disastrous life style, prompting you to indulge in flirting so as to increase heart breaks and appreciate immorality. Flirting on it own is a problem, immorality in the other way is a problem.
Try to be contented with one person you have, because flirting can expose you to an unmerited problems u never wish. Flirting inculcate immorality, because it is a driving force that persuade someone to take some actions, developing an unnecessary desires for sex, make you cultivate an habit of staying without a woman or man…
It high time we put an end to it, so we can have a proper planning for our lives…
3. EXCESSIVE WORRY
Worries is one of the difficult problems one cannot live without. Worries is also one of the hazardous treat to Health. The reason for people getting worried is because they believe that they can handle tomorrow on their own…You are wrong because in Mathew 6:34 and Psalm 94:19..which says….Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. If the Bible can give hope for tomorrow, then who are we to be anxious or get worried about it…No amount of worries can calm situation rather it increases the situation because it might lead you to do the unexpected, whereby regret later.
In any situation in life, first of all u need to relax your brain and your mind. Try to put that situation away from you for some moment, after which you are relaxed you can now take the necessary steps on how to tackle it…and try not to make it a worry, for no matter how big it might be, they will always be a way out.
There are problems that for now can neither be avoided nor resolved. For example, if you have lost a loved one in death or if you face a chronic illness, you may have no choice but to find ways to cope with your pains …”but never be alone”…..
In difficult times, in times of Grief and anxiety, no matter the situation in life try to be in the midst of friends. That predicament is not forever… Loneliness is such an atmosphere where we can decide to do that which is in your mind, after you have filled your mind with negative thought over your situation.
In lonely time, that’s when the devil is at work so as to intimate your mind with different suggestions negatively regarding that your condition. Learn not to give the devil a chance to control your thought…. In such difficult times try as much as you can to mix up with people, get along with people. Been in the midst of people will give you a better courage to overcome such situations…. The bible says in.. proverbs 17:17-18 … A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
18…. A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
In other word’s, A true friend shows love at all times, and he or she was born to support you in your time of distress. That is what that bible portion talks about….
Never keep yourself as the orricle of self destruction for the devil. He will turn you to a shadow of yourself…
