This word may not be for everyone; but if it's for you, you'll know it.
The Lord showed me this morning that some of His people have been dealing with ongoing problems that make them angry. If that's you, you may be filled with love and joy all the rest of your days; but when you deal with this particular thing, you get so angry that you are afraid you'll lose your cool and do something bad.
If that's you, the Lord wants you to know that the solutions you've been looking for–the solutions that have been elusive despite your best efforts–are out there for you. The thing is, they're out there … available to you, but you'll have to seek them out.
The Lord showed me that a simple Google search will provide the answer to some of these problems that make you angry.
The issue is that you didn't realize any creative skills existed in this area. You didn't realize that it took special skills of negotiating and reverse psychology in order to solve these problems. You thought the solutions were straight-forward, like everything else in life.
But, I feel by the Spirit of God that, for many of you, the solutions you need to problems that make you the angriest are a finger's breadth away. You will find them as soon as you begin looking outside yourself for resources you didn't know existed.
The solutions you need aren't in the resources you already have.
You've already tried certain resources, and you didn't find them helpful at all. In fact, the sense of discernment you have told you that some of the things that people recommended to you were an absolute crock.
But, there are other solutions out there–books, classes, mentors, and information freely available to you via a simple Google search–that the Lord will lead you to, if you will but ask Him to do it and then seek the solutions out.
Remember the Word of the Lord in Matthew 7:7-11:
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”
And remember His promise in Psalm 32:8:
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”
Some of you have actually given up on seeing solutions.
You've been depressed, upset, and discouraged because you thought there was no solution to your problem. You thought that this misery was your portion for the rest of your life.
However, the Lord wants you to know that He will lead you to the solutions you seek. Just ask Him, and then seek out the answers you need in places you haven't looked before.
He will give you guidance and discernment to distinguish real solutions from the ones that are a crock. He'll show you which way to go; you will know because you will try the first steps immediately upon reading them, and you will see immediate results.
Anger is not your portion. Misery is not your portion.
Your portion is righteousness, PEACE, JOY, and power in God's Holy Spirit–in all things, including:
- Your finances;
- Your family;
- Your work;
- Your business;
- Your health; and everything else that pertains to you.
Ask the Lord to solve your problem for you THIS WEEK. Ask Him to show you the solutions, plural, this week. If you will, He will.
