We live in the world which full of questions, many of which do not have answers and those that have been given answers by men, have not been satisfactory. Life goes on as though it is fine yet there are issues that bother us or require an answer. Problems came as a result of sin therefore solution should be sought after outside sin. The solution for issues of life is not found in laboratories or workshops or academic forums or even in high tech libraries. We may seem to have solutions to some matters, but those are all temporary solutions if not grounded in Christ Jesus.
The adversary also provides solutions to the problems he causes and people tend to be desperate in seeking solutions and care less as to where solution come from. Remember the devil can bring problems and also remove them so it may appear that he is the ultimate solution whereas he is the ultimate problem. Going to the palm readers and horoscopes, wizards and magicians for solutions is to acknowledge that problems comes from God and Satan is the solution whereas this is just the opposite of the reality. Remember things were perfect till the deceiver came.
When disciples were in trouble with the storm Jesus was their solution, they tried their own solutions which did not work and later remembered the solution was with them; when Mary and Martha had a loss of their brother their solution was Jesus; the Samaritan woman had issues in her life that required lasting solutions she may have covered them but the Source of solution knew all about her life, so when Jesus told her that he has water that whoever drinks of it will never thirst her desire to bet solution for her problems emerged and she said ‘Sir, give me this water, so that I may not be in need again of drink and will not have to come all this way for it. John 4:14, 15 (BBE)
Those who have found this water that only God can provide have found ultimate solution to their many questions and problems. They have reasons to have contentment and happiness and have no need of seeking other solutions that will only end in disappointment. God our maker had answers to our questions before we realized we had questions. That’s why Jesus said ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and everything else will be added unto you’ Matt 6:33 He also said “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)
What it is it that is a concern to you? Because he says ‘cast your cares upon me..’ What do you need? he says ‘Silver and gold are mine..’ Are you lacking something? is anything the matter in your life? Are you troubled?
Isaiah 55:1-2 “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.”
