I must admit...some problems appear unsolvable. There have been times when certain problems, no matter how hard you pray, or how much counsel you seek, remain stubbornly unsolvable. Even the internet yields no solution! [imagine that...tough on some who give almost sovereign status to the modern technology of the super information source].
Of course this unsolvable-ness of some problems appears on the earthly plane. I am not suggesting God does not have the answer or could not reveal the answer should He so choose. What I am suggesting is the possibility that some problems may be allowed to remain frustratingly unsolvable by God. The word of God will give us help in coping with the unsolvable problem, but may not give the answer to the problem itself. I am not saying the Word of God is not sufficient. Just the opposite. It is totally sufficient for coping with any issue. BUT...those unsolvable problems...they seem to hang around to bug us.
As I think about these kinds of problems, I am wondering if God is not deliberately reminding us that we will always need Him...that our confidence and faith in Him is an ongoing necessity, and that...were it not for some of those unsolvable problems, our prayer life would debiliate into something resembling an anemic and pathetic whimper, instead of a robust cry for help.
Think about it...man with all his genius and inventive prowess is allowed to hit a brick wall quite regularly in unsolvable problems [The Iraq war may be one of those unsolvable problems or that difficult human circumstance for which you cannot seem to get an answer]. Just maybe we need God Himself more than we need the answer to that problem. God may allow that problem to hang around for awhile unsolved. Maybe even until we get to heaven. Can we live with that?...I don't know. I must admit...I don't like living with unsolvable problems. But then...I am not calling the life shots, am I? And my friend, neither are you! I am learning to pray for grace to live with some things that just don't seem to get solved.
