I am using this short article to show you how to deal with problems in life. I have applied this same principle to solve series of problems in my life. I have also recommended the same principle or strategies to many people on how to handle problems in their lives.
This may be a short article but it contains a faith process that can help anyone to deal with problems in life. I want you to pay attention and try to read and study the accompanying bible texts on your own after you are done with this post.

Problems produce fear
I want to let you know today that problems and challenges produce fear. Yes, they do. But it’s to the extent we allow them to do so. They won’t if we don’t allow them – I believe that’s the good news.
Fear is the opposite of faith. When fear is present, faith will be absent and when faith is absent, it becomes difficult to please God. When you can’t please God, you will not be able to tap into His abundant mercy and help to solve your problems. I believe you can see the connection.
How to deal with problems in life: A case of Peter
Look at this case of Peter and the boisterous wind. The boisterous wind always produces fear in you if you look unto it. The bible says Peter was afraid when he began to look at the boisterous wind. See it below:
But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
Jesus and His Word produces faith in you when you look unto Him. The bible says Peter received strength and power to walk on water when he looked unto Jesus. Read it below:
And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water. So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
God’s Word produces faith to deal with problems
You can see the clear difference between the two situations of Peter and the boisterous wind as shown above. God’s Word produces faith in you and with faith, you can always please God to receive your miracles and breakthroughs.
When you learn to look unto God and His Word during challenging times, you will be filled with the faith required to produce a miracle over the problem. You will be filled with faith on how to deal with problems in life.

If you are yet to become a child of God through Jesus, you should consider doing so immediately.
Say a simple prayer asking for forgiveness from God and asking Jesus to become your Lord and Saviour. Please visit here to read more about this step.
