It's not God!

Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ. 2Timothy 2:3

Problems are not from God!

People often say things like' maybe God is punishing me for my past sins, God is humbling me by letting me lose my job, when their loved one dies they say God took them away from them! If it's an elderly person, great, they have gone to rest but children?

Well last time I checked the bible, Psalms 136:1 says for He is good and his mercies endureth forever.
Jeremiah 29:11, for I know the thoughts that I think towards you, thoughts of peace and NOT of EVIL to give you an expected end.

So can God do both good and evil towards you, Absolutely never. That's contradictory!

God is good, he tempts no man, all he can do is good. His name is Holy and faithful. Revelation 19:11

Some will compare themselves to Job and say what about Job? Well I say 'what about Job?
First the problem was not from God and two you are under a new and better covenant than Job. Study Hebrews 8 and see what Apostle Paul said there.

You are a royal priesthood, you are peculiar, you are special, bought with a very high price! Some of us when we spend a lot of money buying stuff we take so much care of it, how much more God?

He paid a very high price for you so how will he kill your child, how will he destroy your marriage, how will he take your job from you or your finances?

So where do problems come from then?
John 10:10a.The thief cometh not but for to kill and to steal and to destroy.
Having a correct revelation of the source of problems will help you deal wisely with it.

In the passage above we are admonished to endure hardness, yes trials of our faith will come to help us put things in the right perspective, help us lay our treasure on things above not on this earth where things do not last, help us be focused on this race we are running and put God first.

However God does not tempt you by killing your loved ones,  he does not humble you by taking your finances away, he is not wicked. He is a loving God.

Yes there are people who are so stubborn that they will only learn through the hard knocks of life, through challenges but that's not the best way to learn. Learn by studying what God says in his word and avoid a lot of trouble. Learn to stay under his wings where there is safety. Learn what is really important in life.

When problems come, face the devil squarely and command him to leave your property.

How many people will allow a kidnapper into their home who knocks on their door and say I came to steal your kids away from you? You will not only shut the door in his face you will call for help immediately.

You should deal with the devil exactly like that too. Fight the real person bringing the problem with the weapons of warfare God gave you. 2 Corinthians 10:4

God is not the one behind your problems.
