God Is Never Your Problem

God Is Always Your Solution!

by Pastor John Hamel


“The thief [Satan] cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I [Jesus] am come that they might have life and that they might have it MORE ABUNDANTLY.” (John 10:10)


What you just read is one of the greatest revelations in the entire Bible.  Jesus said that it’s Satan, the Thief, who is the source of all that is stealing, killing and destroying in the Earth, NOT GOD


Jesus then went on to say that He, Himself, came for the exact opposite of stealing, killing and destroying.  He came to give us all we have need of, to give life and to crush the curse of destruction. (1 John 3:8)  Jesus calls this “Abundant Life.”


If you don't have the revelation that God is not the source of your problems, the Bible is a locked booked to you.  However, once you have the revelation of the goodness of God and His willingness to help you that lock is broken and the windows of Heaven open on your behalf.


The revelation of God being your solution, not your problem, is one that the people of the Old Testament did not have.  However, we do have it today and we are responsible for it.  


Possibly some unenlightened, albeit sincere, religious leaders and religious people have told you that God is the source of all your troubles.  Well, I'm happy to tell you that they are wrong, sincerely wrong. 


Many New Testament-illiterate, yet well-meaning religious people do blame God for all the evil in the world.  They say misinformed things like, “He’s wrathful,” “You really made Him angry,” “He teaches you how to live right by making you sick,” “He took your baby’s life because of what you did 10 years ago,” etc., etc., etc. 


Well, I have GOOD NEWS.  Jesus revealed that it’s Satan who does all those cruel things to God’s creation only to turn around and blame God for it. 


Sadly, our GOOD God takes a lot of heat for what the HATEFUL devil does.  This is why we absolutely must become familiar with the New Testament.  It is there that the love nature of God is revealed.


God is not a “punitive” or a punishing God.  God is a Forgiver and a Blesser.  God is NOT the damner.  Satan is the damner.  Jesus said God is the Blesser and that settles that.  The Bible is the final Authority on the subject of God.  Stick with what the Bible says and you’ll never go wrong. 


Personally, I’ve tried religion and I’ve tried the Bible.  I speak experientially when I say, “The Bible is better.  Far, far better.”


Did you know that the Bible calls you a work of God?  That’s right.  You’re a real “piece of work.”  God’s work.  Look at what the Apostle Paul wrote. 


"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:10)


You are a work of God and the Bible says that His mercies are over all of His works.  Let's read that. 


“The Lord is gracious …full of compassion; slow to anger…of great mercy. The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” (Psalm 145:8,9)


Now, let's look at the whole equation.


A) You are a work of God. (Eph.2:10)


B) God's mercies are over all of His works.(Ps.145:9)


A plus B equals C.


C) His mercy is over you right now, not His wrath.


Simple stuff, huh?  If you will ask forgiveness, in Jesus' Name, for all those things He knows you’re ashamed of, He will forgive you and clear your conscience of all guilt. (Psalm 103:12,13; Hebrews 9:14)


Once you do that, He wants you to begin operating in faith.  Faith is simply confidence in God's goodness.  He wants you to have confidence that He will help you with what you’re going through.  There is no pit so deep that He can't get you out of it.  He said so in His Love Letter to you, the New Testament.


"There hath no temptation [test/hardship] taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer [allow] you to be tempted [tested] above that ye are able; but will with the temptation [test/hardship] ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, that ye may be able to bear it." (1Corinthians 10:13)


Excuse my grammar but that ain't religion, Honey. That's the GOOD NEWS of God!  


However, you must exercise your own faith in order for Him to help you now.  He is a God of Faith and without our unleashing faith in Him, it is impossible to please Him. (Hebrews 11:6)  God is not moved by your needs.  If He were, He would have moved and met every one of your needs by now.  


God is moved only by faith.  Your faith.  You can only move Him with your faith.  


This is how you do that.


Pray, “Jesus, I choose You as my Lord and Savior.  I apologize to You if I’ve offended You, however unintentional, by listening to religion and not to Your Word.  Please forgive me for blaming You for what the devil's been doing to me.  Please forgive me for my sins, too.  Please give me wisdom for my situation.  I’ll do exactly as You reveal.  In exchange for Your helping me, I will serve You for the rest of my life according to the Bible.  I'll also start telling others about Your goodness.  I won't let You take the heat anymore when people start blaming You for what Jesus said the devil's doing.  In Jesus’ Name I pray.” (Take a look at John 16:23; Romans 10:13; James 1:5-8.)


Remember, God is the Blesser.  Satan is the damner, but Jesus whipped the fire out of him for you. (Hebrews 2:14)  


Make this your confession of faith ... “GOD’S NEVER MY PROBLEM.  GOD’S ALWAYS MY SOLUTION.”


Open up your New Testament now.  Every time you see the name "God" or "Jesus" or the "Spirit," replace it with the word "Love."  


That's when the lock breaks.  The Bible then becomes an open Book of blessing!


Be blessed ... John & Barbara Hamel
