four major areas and most of life's problems are gone.
Most problems can fall into four categories; relationship.(includes
sex and the expectations we have of the other), financial,
balance and the tongue -1Peter
21:23 "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from
Many problems come from our being
led by our excessive desires, always
pumped of course by the dark side, especially every time we entertain
a thought not in line with love, health, wealth and positive expression
-Phillipians 4:8. It's been
the same since the beginning of mankind on earth.
Many problems come because we don't
know the way of peace.
The solution is being
in Christ with all that means -2Peter
1:4 "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises;
that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped.(how
can we escape?).the
that is in the world through lust."
If we can master these areas, few
problems will come along in life, but some
still will. But if you do your best training up your kids,
they won't be one of them. Trials and tribulations are a necessary component
of life here. Why?
For the relationship category, see
'Relationships' and 'Mating'.
See 'Prosperity' for financial. Balance involves
how we live lif, and in
such a way as to avoid stress – that particular art involving our decisions.
There's only a slight difference between
sticking your neck out and keeping your chin up, but it's worth knowing!
Ask God to give
1:5; Proverbs 4:7) so you can
find the balance for your own particular lifestyle. People live
on feelings, and off balance constantly; too
little sleep too often, too much of this, too little of that, etc.
Take a lesson
from the design of the Universe, that of balance.
Many are slaves
to the off side of pride -Proverbs
21:24 "Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud
wrath." Ever gone after someone who encroached
upon your pride by cutting you off in traffic? Road rage is "dealing in
proud wrath". "Keep honking, I'm reloading!" Ha ha!
the Jews responsible for crucifying Jesus? Acts
4:10 "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that
by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised
from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole."

Jesus said that He willingly laid His life down -John
10:17,18 "Therefore doth my Father love me, because I
lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from
me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down and I have
power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father."
26:2,4,15,16,48-54 "Ye know that after two days is the feast of the
passover and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified. verse
4 And consulted that they might take Jesus
by subtilty and kill him. verses 15,16
And said unto them, What will ye give me and I will deliver him unto you?
And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that
time he sought opportunity to betray him. verses
48-54 Now he that betrayed him gave them a
sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he. Hold him fast.
And forthwith he came to Jesus and said, Hail, master, and kissed him.
And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they
and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. And, behold, one of them which were
with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, and struck a servant
of the high priest's, and smote off his ear. Then said Jesus unto him,
Put up again thy sword into his place. For all they that take the sword-(for
unnecessary unprovoked violence)-shall
perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father
and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But
then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?"
Jesus was delivered to the Romans.(who
the high ranking religious Jews and crucified by those Romans, but it was
all part of God's fabulous plan of redemption.
