Does Being Baptized Mean All Your Problems Are Fixed?

From Going Public: A 7-Day Devotional About Baptism and Why It Matters

Big Idea: Our problems aren’t automatically fixed, but God promises to be with us and help us through them.

The short answer is “no,” but the real answer is even better.

You made a public statement of your faith when you were baptized, and now you get to walk with Jesus as a continued daily “yes,” affirming to God, yourself, and those around you that you have been made new. The difference now is that you aren’t trying to build up yourself; you’re built up by Jesus.

Just as you said “yes” to Jesus, now you get to keep saying yes to Him. No matter what happens, we can have peace in Jesus: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). The Bible promises that the same God who saved you is the God who sustains and rescues you (Isaiah 46:4).

Be overflowing with gratitude at this bold next step of faith that you have taken, knowing a life with Jesus is a life of continual growth. It’s a life of next steps.

Sometimes we change in a moment, but often it takes time. Be patient, trusting in God’s perfect timing and provision.
