As children of a loving, caring heavenly Father, why are Christians still faced with trying to cope with the problems of the world? If God really cares for us, why do we still have problems?
"We all have problems. That's life," says Lloyd J. Ogilvie. " But we also have a Lord who not only helps us grow through our problems, but gives us the power to triumph over them." God allows Christians to face difficulties in life not as punishment, Dr. Ogilvie says, but to strengthen their faith and trust in Him.
"When the Lord allows a big problem to surface," says Dr. Ogilview, "it is because He is ready to do a great work."
As a part of his research, Dr. Ogilvie asked his congregation and television viewers to come up with life's biggest problems. In reviewing these responses and searching God's Word, he discovered that not only does God have a redemptive purpose for problems, but He also gives us a specific promise in the Bible for every problem. This book is a compilation of those problems which so many people have in common, and of God's amazing promises dealing with those problems.
If God Cares, Why Do I still have problems? Is also a survival handbook. With remarkable clarity and insight, Dr. Ogilvie gives hope to those faced with problems such as:
*job stressbroken relationships
*illness or disabilities
Dr. Ogilvie also shows how to face problems and claim the specific biblical promises God has given to His children on overcoming whatever adversities may arise. " He wants to transform our approach to problems," Dr. Ogilvie says. "He wants us to think of ourselves as being men and women of valor because of His might at work in us.
