If you know the answer to a problem, is it a problem?

Psalms 46:1-2 GNB
(1) God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
(2) So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken and mountains fall into the ocean depths;

I was listening to a well known preacher the other day. He was talking about fretting over things all night and not turning them over to God. He said if you knew the answer to a test or trial, it would not be one. If you knew the answer, then you had been through it before. Since you do not know the answer you have not. In that case, turn to God and get the answer and if you do not get the solution right away, then do not get into worry about it.

Today's verse says much the same thing. I do not know any of the answers of my current problems (and believe me I have a few), but I have a God who does and I need to learn to rest my faith in him.

How about you?
