The God You Pray is Bigger than the Problems of Your Life

We all encounter problems in our life, whether it is at workplace or problems at our home. Some problems, we are able to solve while some remain unresolved, which keep our mind disturbed & agitated. In our problems of life. somehow we loose faith in God & forget that God is almighty, who can solve our problems of life. Our problems might seem big to us but our God is having much much greater powers to solve these problems. Only thing is that we should have faith in God & we should pray to Him to solve our problems.

Other than faith in God we need to see, what should be our attitude of mind, when we are disturbed by problems of life. Let us understand a very simple thing regarding the law of Nature. In this Nature, whatever there is, it is there for a limited period of time. In Nature, plants grow from seeds & after a particular life cycle, these cease to exist. When you see a movie, it starts & ends after few hours, which means it has a beginning & an end. In nature, everything changes & change is the law of nature. Seasons too change, spring goes then summer comes, summer goes then autumn comes, autumn goes then winter comes. Similarly times in our lives change as per the law of the nature.

Same is the case with the problems in our life. There is nothing called permanent problems. No problems last forever in our life & these get resolved with time just like seasons change in nature. Problems too have a birth date & a death date. Problems too have a limited duration of lifetime. Either problems automatically get resolved with time or with your understanding & acumen gets resolved very soon. So we should not get discouraged in life with problems of life. We should have faith in our mind that problems always have a solution. Have faith in God & try resolving the problem. If you are able to solve the problem, it’s well; otherwise do not get discouraged, as these shall die down it's own death with time as no problem is there to stay forever in our life. Also besides that let’s have “Full faith” in our God as He shall help us in resolving the problems of life.

Now below are few verses from Bhagwat Gita which teaches, how a person of peaceful, unwavering and undisturbed mind should behave in life:

"sama-duhkha-sukhah sva-sthah
tulya-priyapriyo dhiras
tulya-nindatma-samstutih" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fourteen verse 24)

Sri Krishna said: One who is situated in the Self (soul) and behaves same during happiness and distress; one who looks upon a lump of earth, a stone and a piece of gold with an equal eye; one who is equal toward the desirable and the undesirable; one who is situated equally well in praise and blame is the one who is of steady mind.

"manapamanayos tulyas
tulyo mitrari-pakshayoh
gunatitah sa ucyate" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fourteen verse 25)

Sri Krishna said: One who is steady in honor and dishonor; one who treats alike both friend and enemy; and who has renounced all material activities—such a person is said to have transcended the three modes of nature & lives in a peaceful state of mind.

So do not get discouraged in life with the problems. Keep your mind peaceful & think that problems in life are like small hurdles when we walk in a rough terrain but sooner that rough terrain passes with time & we come once again in a smooth terrain. Just have faith in God & let your mind be unwavering and undisturbed in all circumstances, keep your mind in control & then you shall overcome all problems of your life.

Jai Shri Krishna
