Solving Problems...You Don't Have to Go It Alone

Recently, at work, I received an email with the header, “What can we solve together?” I began to ruminate on what that means if I am working together, in concert, with God. What problems can I solve with His guidance or assistance?

God provides us with the tools and capacity to solve problems, not just the ones we personally face, but those problems that others face. Moses was tasked with some pretty difficult requests, but he was given the tools and resources to ultimately lead the slaves out of Egypt.

Exodus 3:10-12 "Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt." But Moses said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?" And He said, "Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God at this mountain."

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Helping others is referenced by The Fray in the song, “How to save a life,” in which the question was asked “Where did I go wrong?” The song goes on to reference what could have been done to help a friend through struggles.

Also, there’s a great song by Matthew West, “Do Something”, that suggests God created us to do things to help the world. I know that I can identify and evaluate alternatives to solving problems, and, in actingon those, God will help me and provide what I need to be effective.

The YouTube video of the song, “Do Something” is located here:

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
