Handling Our Disappointments

DevotionsHandling Our Disappointments

Habakkuk 1:2

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?

🎚️What is the purpose of disappoints in the life of a child of God? Are disappointments coincidental or do they come with a purpose? Watch out!

🎚️Do you ever feel stuck in discouragement? If so, you are not alone. At some point, everyone experiences dashed hopes. Disappointment is an emotional response to a failed expectation. It
is the normal initial reaction.

🎚️But allowed to linger, it can turn into discouragement, which hovers like a dense cloud.

🎚️When that is the case, there is no sense of joy or contentment, regardless of what you do.

🎚️The circumstances that trigger these emotions may be unavoidable, but how we respond is a choice. Either we can let sadness overwhelm our soul or we can face the situation with courage and bring it before the One who can help.

🎚️Living in discouragement will divide the mind, making it hard to focus on anything besides our pain.

🎚️Then as anger becomes habitual, we will look for someone to blame,
Maybe God, people around us, or ourselves.

🎚️Frustration that is not handled well may develop into despair, which in turn can estrange us from others.

🎚️people do not enjoy the company of someone who is bitter and defeated. This isolation leads to low self-esteem.

🎚️Finally, in a fog of discouragement, we can make poor decisions based on crushed emotions instead of truth.

🎚️Obviously, choosing this self-destructive path is not God’s best for us.Though we all face disappointment from time to time, believers are not to wallow in it. Instead, God wants us to trust Him with everything, even unmet expectations and deep sadnesses.

🎚️Remember, there is divine purpose for everything He allows to touch His children’s lives (Rom. 8:28).

🎚️Disappointments and unmet expectations can be instruments in God’s hands to draw us nearer to Himself. Are you disappointed? Instead of agonizing, look for God’s hand and purpose in the situation. It is difficult but practicable because of the presence of the Holy Spirit in us.

Shalom and Maranatha!
