He doesn’t just want to alleviate temporary pain, or provide superficial treatment for symptoms. Only He can go beyond our mental and emotional levels to the soul level. He wants to deal with the root issue—our need for a right relationship with Him.
So many of our struggles come from this fundamental problem—our disconnect from God due to our rejection of Him, demonstrated in both unbelief and disobedience. the Bible calls that “sin.”
And before God can really work with the other things in our lives, we need to let Him deal with this core issue by providing forgiveness and reconciliation with Him.
Jesus is the answer.
A popular song years ago by award-winning songwriter Andraé Crouch put it like this:
Jesus is the answer, for the world today, Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way.
If you have some questions in the corners of your mind, Traces of discouragement, and peace you cannot find, Reflections of your past seem to face you everyday, But there’s one thing I want you to know, that Jesus is the way.
I know that you’ve got mountains that you think you cannot climb, I know your skies looks so dark that you think the sun will never ever shine, But in case you don’t know it I tell you God’s word is true, Everything that he has promised I know that he will do it for you.
