The I Problem
May we recognize God is the answer to, not a few, but every problem.
A friend of mine taught me the differences between “I” and “we.”
I often talk in the first person when struggling with difficulties in my life. I say, “I’m so worried about this, “I wish I could find the answer to that, or which direction to turn.”
But if I am God’s child, aren’t my uncertainties a matter of we, in place of I? God is with me. I do not walk alone. We walk together.
So if I say, “We are so worried about this,” or, “We wish we could find the answer to that,” then on comes the light. Those phrases will not work. God does not worry, nor does He search for answers or direction. And if that is the truth, then neither should I worry or search. I can count on God to guide and supply. And then we can live in peace without worry.
For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.
Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.
“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
