God is the answer to your problems, but what does that mean? It doesn’t mean that God will get you out of your troubles: your girlfriend will come back; your boss won’t fire you; a miraculous source of income will appear out of nowhere, like a raft in a flood, to save you from your whelming debts. God is not a genie in a bottle who will grant you three wishes.
God is not the answer to the problem you’re in but to the problem you are. Until we see this, we will be frustrated with God and will feel like the Christian life isn’t working.
