"Physical circumstances are given by God to teach us spiritual lessons...Our every day "problems" are custom designed by God to reveal attitudes within our spirits."
Ken Nair - Life Partners
In my pursuit of Christ, I have to ask myself some important questions:
Is it possible that in every physical problem I face there is a correlative spiritual lesson to be learned?
Could it be that "trials" are meant to help me re-evaluate my ability to handle life?
Is it possible that the "physical circumstances" that confront me may reveal an attitude of self-sufficiency (pride)?
Are these problems really tests that God is providing for me to evaluate my quest for Christ-likeness?
Could it be that these every day "problems" are meant to help me to the humble realization that I'm weak and that I need a Saviour?
What should my attitude be when the next problem comes my way?
"Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." James 1:2-4
