Lee Lyons and 4 other young men started a gospel singing group. In August 1977, Lee left Panama City to attend college at Florida A&M University. During his college tenure Lee sang with the FSU Gospel Choir, General Uprising Gospel Ensemble and became the choir director for New Zion P.B. Church. In January 16, 1995 Apostle Lyons shared what the Lord had been speaking to him over the years about pastoring and establishing Priestly Praise Ministries, Inc. Apostle Lyons brings tremendous Insight into the heart of life with gifts for problem solving and prophecy amongst many other things, today he shares a light with us that will illuminate the very word "problem." Without further ado, here is Apostle Lyons.
What is a problem? A problem is a situation, circumstance or person that presents difficulty or perplexity.
Where do problems come from? Problems arise from every facet of life. Some problems we cause ourselves and others are caused by forces beyond our control.
Problems are a natural, everyday occurrence of life, and in order to not suffer from the tensions and frustrations they cause, we must learn how to deal with them in a rational, logical and spiritual manner.
Regardless of whom you are or what you do, you will face obstacles and how you deal with these challenges will often be a determining factor in how successful you are in life.
You were created to solve problems on the earth. Simply put, you are the solution to a specific problem. Jesus never invested time in those who thought they were whole. He stated: “The well don’t need a physician.” What grieves your heart continually is a clue to a problem you were created to solve.
The problem you solve determines your salary. Your salary does not reflect your personal worth, gifts or capabilities. Your salary is simply decided by the kind of problem you have chosen to solve. Janitors, sales clerks, doctors, lawyers etc, all solve problems, however, salaries are determined based on the type of problem each solve. Therefore, If I am going to change my current status, I must change the kind of problems I am solving and change the accuracy with which I solve them. We must challenge our excuses, remove rewards until the job is done and stay focused on results. To lead tomorrow, we must learn today.
Champions don’t become champions in the ring-they are merely recognized there. When you recognize your lack of skill and begin the daily discipline of personal growth in leadership, exciting things start to happen
You will only be remembered in life for two things – The problems you solve or the ones you create.
