Attacking it? There’s two ways of attacking any difficult problem: attack it with a sword or with a pillow. Some solutions to problems seem pretty easy; that is until you put them into action. Picking up the pillow instead of the sword may not get you where you’re hoping to go.
Think about it. When you’re facing tough problems you have two choices: threaten the problem with a pillow or attack it with a sword. Either way you will be putting forth an effort; the difference is the pillow will usually result in new problems;, the sword will probably cut your problems down to size.
God’s Word tells us: “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.” (Nehemiah 2:11-17).
When you plan ahead, exercising wisdom and strategy for making sure your problem won’t be a reoccurring one, you pick up the sword. It takes more effort, more focus and more planning; but, unless you enjoy facing the same problem over and over again, the extra effort is worth it.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when we see the trouble we are in: lives in ruins, and the gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.”” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
