Romans 10:11-12 NASB
For the Scripture says, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.”
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him;
Many struggle through disappointments in life.
You try doing something and you are disappointed when it doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would.
Whether, it is sports, jobs, business, or just doing something different with your life.
You tried changing your direction in order to see if it would make a better change.
Some, if not all of the things you’ve done have not turned out right.
Some people look at disappointments as God trying to tell them something.
Romans 5:5 NASB
and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
He is saying something to some of you.
You are going the wrong way.
I didn’t tell you to go that way.
See the vision I have shown you.
Feel the pulling or pushing I have been giving you.
Disappointments in life can be good or bad.
JOHN 16:33 AKJV
These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
But, no matter the outcome its there for a reason.
Fine out what it is and make your plans for change.
Disappointments in life though are hard; you must not let them keep you from achieving your goals.
Disappointments are a training tool for you also.
Where one disappointment comes, it will hopefully move you to act differently.
Act differently in the way of making a better choice.
Disappointments is a development mechanism.
It helps you to change you
Or should I say mold you and train you.
Isaiah 64:8 NLT
And yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand.
It’s a sign that must be looked at as a sign of change.
Changes you to become better
Better at every stage in life you are on.
Stages are levels in life like grades in school.
Once you have been taught on one level, all that you need then is for you to move to the next level.
And life mirrors this for your growth.
The sad part about disappointments is some people use them to go backwards or to stay on the same level where they are for many years, not seeing the reason for the disappointments.
Yes, if you need more time at the level where you are until you have developed that’s good, but you don’t want to stay there for too long.
For the longer you stay, the harder it will get.
Meaning, life demands you to be more and do more.
And in your mind set, you will fill the disappointments as a strong hold to keep you in this same level.
Don’t stay there.
JOSHUA 1:8 NLT
Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.
You are needed elsewhere.
Your gift and talents are needed on the next level in life.
People that you must touch are waiting for you.
Their lives are impacted by what you have learned.
And the lives that wait for you so they can touch you and impart to you things you need in your training and development.
The life you lead is not just for you, but is for many others.
We in this life need one another.
It’s part of our Master’s plan.
My question to you is
Do you see disappointments?
Do you see opportunity?
Not a problem
You got this
The victory is yours before you even started on this road you are on.
It was given to you by Christ victory on the cross.
So there are no disappointments
Only a boldness that says
Bring it on.
I am ready for the challenges where they may come from.
