      God sent it!  Sometimes the problem that we are facing and fearing, is the very thing that God has allowed, in order to break us free from the past and push us into our future. Sometimes if we take the time to evaluate our circumstances and pray about our situation... if we seek God through our trials and trust the Lord in our tribulation, we will find that it was all necessary in order for us to break free from the past and push into our future. Perhaps there is a career you wanted; a ministry you dreamed of or a mission you've been called to... You've been afraid to move forward and you've been stuck behind.  Maybe you wonder why some doors have been closed; some promotions have passed you by; your job was downsized or your hours were decreased. Is God trying to move you to the new place? Is God trying to take you away from your comfort zone and your complacent state?  Don't worry, because maybe God sent it!

      God sent it!  Maybe you have been praying for someone to be delivered; to be set free and to be restored.  Now you look up and they have hit rock bottom and have no place to go. Don't get discouraged. Maybe God allowed it, so they would have no where to turn, but to Him. Perhaps God allowed this, so that they would realize they need some help and there is only one way out.  Don't worry, because maybe God sent it!

      God sent it! Check out your problems; look at your trials...don't be so quick to blame the devil, for your trouble.  Maybe God sent it, to open your eyes; to build up your faith ; to push you out and press you on! Sometimes if God didn't close one door, we would never open the other. Sometimes God takes the one thing that seems so horrible, and gives you the breakthrough of a lifetime. Don't worry; don't be afraid of what appears to be a setup; what seems to be a crisis and what feels like a disaster. Just count it all joy! Don't worry, because maybe God sent it!

      When the children of Israel were finally let go from bondage and set free from the Egyptians, they looked ahead and there was the Red Sea; they looked behind and there were the Egyptians. What do they do? There are faced with a huge problem; the Red Sea. There was no way around it and they would drown if they went through it. But God.... God made the Sea and He was able to part the sea. God parted the Sea for the children of  Israel to walk across on dry land; and then when the Egyptians came following behind, God closed up the Sea and swallowed up their enemies. Their problem was their solution.

      The very thing that terrified the children of Israel, was the very thing that broke them free from the past; killed their enemy; and caused them to push into their future. It was God who allowed it and it was God who brought them through it. It was necessary, or their enemies would have continued to pursue them. The Red Sea; the problem; the issue; the situation; the trial; the tribulations.... Don't worry, because maybe God sent it!

      You have to go through something in order to get somewhere. Sometimes we are stuck and won't move until something happens to move us. Your problem may be your solution and the closed door may be your way out.  

      "Then the waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not so much as one of them remained.  But the children of Israel had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.  So the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. Thus Israel saw the great work which the LORD had done in Egypt; so the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD and His servant Moses."  Exodus 14:28-31 NKJV

      Don't worry, because maybe God sent it!

      Love somebody today who doesn't love you; doesn't care about you; won't repay you, can't repay you and doesn't want to repay you...then you will be treating them the way God treated you...
