A Perspective on Disappointment
While I was pondering about life, I discovered that: Sometimes, to succeed in life you need enemies! Yes!
You need people who will mock you so that you can run to God.
You need people who will try to intimidate you so that you can be courageous.
You need people who will say “NO” so that you can learn how to be independent…how to do it yourself.
You need people who will disappoint you so that you can put all your trust in God alone.
You need people who will work towards you losing that job so that you can start your own business.
You need people who will sell your ‘Joseph’ so that ‘he’ can get to Egypt.
You need a cruel landlord so that you won’t be too comfortable in someone else’s house, then you can build your own house on time.
But sometimes, when we are disappointed, we feel very bad and we tend to remain on that spot. Not knowing that the endpoint of disappointment is the beginning of your accomplishments.
Understand this, every disappointment you once had came with a blessing. However, it is not everyone that partakes in this blessing.
You cannot see a newly opened door while you are still putting all your attention, time and energy into trying to force the closed one to open.
No disappointment ever comes without an attached blessing. So, when disappointment comes, thank God for it and tell Him to open your eyes to see the new blessing that He has packaged in it for you.
Disappointment is Phase 1; accomplishment is Phase 2. I doubt if you can jump the protocol. That is why it is called BREAKthrough. Something must BREAK so that you can go through!
Meditation: No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13
You will succeed because Jesus loves You!
