Summary: An incouranging word that our GOD is in control.

God has a purpose for every problem!

• How many are here this morning that are experiencing some type of

• Problem, (let be honest this morning, lets be for real,)

• some sort of trouble,

• in some type of pain?

Isn’t it true? That all of us here today have come to Christ when we were * Experiencing problems, troubles, and pains?

• Lowest time in life

• Hurts, contemplating suicide.

I know I did! I had junk in my trunk!

All messed up, confused, troubled in my mind, problems in my home.

Didn’t understand! I came to a time in my life that I was searching for the Answer. Then one day….. Flyer

Jesus Is The Answer to all of our Problems, Troubles, and Pains. Come to me (Jesus) an I (Jesus) shall give you rest.

And I did! God answered my problem, healed my pain, and solved my troubles.

The message for today is not so much about the Problems we had before coming to Christ but the problems we will face as we walk with Christ.

*But a huge misconception about coming to Christ is that all things will become rosy, life will become problem less, no, no no!

Life will not be problem less because we are still on this Earth!

• not in heaven yet!

• The devil didn’t retire.

But now that we are in Christ, we can bring some heaven down to earth!

With Jesus in our lives, for the Bible says

Greater is he that is in me than the one of this world!

Help me Pray!

God has a purpose for every problem!

John 16:33

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


In the world ye shall have tribulation: Not might have, maybe. You will!

What is Tribulation? Its Synonym is: Misfortune, pain, trial, suffering, ordeal, difficulty, problems, troubles, distress.

What is a synonym? Others words that mean the same.

Knowledge is power! We are here to learn!

Prov 24:5

5 A wise man has great power, and a man of knowledge increases strength;


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace

Bro. & Sis. When we first came to Christ, didn’t he give us

• Peace, make us complete, gave us a new life, new beginning,

• But Jesus then reminds us that were not in Heaven yet.

• In the world ye shall have tribulation:

but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

How many of us will admit that we hear voices in our mind.

Voices that will influence our choices!

• the devil is real, he is a liar, he is constantly yapping in our mind.

• You know devil told me as I read this scripture.

• Good cheer!…..

• Jesus overcame, easy for him, he is God. You don’t walk on water.

• Jesus is not saying for us to be of good cheer about our problems,

• Im so great full to know the truth, to be able to recognize the lies of the enemy.

• Devil, I invited Jesus Christ into my life, opened the door to my heart, and he came in for he is with me. And because he is with me, I to shall over came my problems, and because of that I can be of good cheer.

God has a purpose for every problem!

A writer said it well ”It is the fire of suffering that brings forth the gold of Godliness.”

God used problems to get our attention, didn’t he? God will use our circumstances to develop our character, to shape us, to build us, to mold us.

To show us that he is GOD, and that he is in control.

But in order for God to use our Problems, troubles, and pains for his honor and Glory, it will depend on our personal relationship with Christ, our Faith, our honesty, and our commitment.

* Important come to Church- Faith comes by hearing…

• Important study the word of God- knowledge is power.

• The bible is the instruction book of how to react to the problem, how to face it, how to get through it, how to learn from it.

• Some today might be going through something and your tripping because even thou God intends to use it for the good, the devil and other mean it for the bad.

Then hear comes.. Voices that will influence our choices!

• god is not with you, no one cares, you were doing better on your own.

It is normal even Peter lets us know…

1 Peter 4:12-13

12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
