I Got 99 Problems….

When was the last time God tried to get your attention? I have heard it said, “Managers light a fire under people; leaders light a fire in people.” The defining difference is simply the approach. Both strategies are intended to provoke change. Fire is often disguised as problems and God uses them to grapple our attention (James 1:2-3), to point us in a new direction (Pr 20:30), correct us (Ps 119:71-72), protect us (Gen 50:20), and perfect us (Rom 5:3-4). Problems are like ‘personal trainers’ and most personal trainers are acutely focused on achieving goals and not comfort. C.S. Lewis put it this way, “If tribulation is a necessary element in redemption, we must anticipate that it will never cease till God sees the world to be either redeemed or no further redeemable.”
