How to Deal With Problems

Faith is the first step in dealing with problems.  By this I mean that you need to be able to have faith that God will be with you and enable you to deal with your problems.  Faith gives you confidence that everything will be all right, which gives you hope.  A person with faith in Christ should never be without hope.

Prayer is the next step.  Ask God to help you, to guide you, to give you strength, or, better yet, to just make the problem go away.

Then research the problem. Read the Bible, seek godly council, seek knowledgeable council. (Godly council may not be knowledgeable, knowledgeable council may not be godly.)  Ask God to give you wisdom and discernment.

Utilize the support of family, and friends, especially from your church.  If you don’t have a church, find one.  If no one will stand with you, reexamine your position, because maybe you’re doing the wrong thing!

Take action.  If the problem has not resolved itself on it’s own then follow through with the course of action that you have settled upon after prayer and research.

Thank God for His help.  If the problem persists, repeat the process.
