Problems do not help us grow. It’s our response to the problem that causes growth. One person may reject God in the middle of their distress, while another person may seek God and trust Him. While both people may be going through the same problem, one will fail and one will succeed. It’s all determined by their choice: will they pursue seeking man’s solution and their own strength; or will they pursue seeking God’s solution through His Word and prayer? Exercise your pursuit of God and you will grow no matter where you are!
1 Peter 2:2 – “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby…”
