The challenges before you aren’t unsolvable.
Written By Benjamin Dankaka
To become an effective leader, you must be a problem solver. All of the most notable leaders in the Bible were chosen by God to solve problems. God didn’t call anyone unless there was a problem to solve. When God created Adam and Eve, He needed someone like Him to rule the earth. When God called Noah, He needed him to build an ark. When He called Abraham, God wanted to establish a righteous nation. When God called Joseph, He needed a man who could solve an economic crisis. When God met Moses, it was to solve a problem of slavery.
Jesus also came into the world to solve a problem. Even after He saved the world, God continued to work with problem solvers. Do you know that Christ’s disciples were specifically instructed to solve a problem? (Matthew 28:19-20). If God is asking you to lead in any area that appears to be problematic, know that He wants you to be the problem solver. The challenges before you aren’t unsolvable and God knows you are capable. If you are surrounded by problems and no one is doing anything about it, possibly God wants you to be the problem solver.
Prayer: Dear Lord, show me how to tackle my problems. Amen.
