Sometimes life seemd to be a chain of setbacks and disappointments. We don’t achieve what we have been striving towards. We don’t get the job, get the promotion, are misunderstood, or fail at something even when we try our best. We feel like a failure and wonder what to do next. I have felt that, have you? Recently I was listening to a young person telling me about a failure they had experienced even after much prayer and preparation. They felt that God was leading them in a certain way, yet they could not achieve what was expected. I was able to share a truth that someone had shared with me. “God is not surprised at the outcome and God is not disappointed with you.”. Do we feel sometimes that we have let God down? That even when we pray and try our best that God thinks less of us when we falter? Good news!! If we are walking with the Lord, He is right beside us going through the same things and He is not let down ! He see us, through the blood of His own son, and we are precious to Him in Christ. He says “Come unto me all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest……….. Take my yoke on you and learn of me, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 He is yoked to us, beside us, carrying the load also. If our way is blocked in one direction, He will lead us to another path with His easy yoke and light burden. Exchange your personal disappointment with God’s abundant pleasure in you and be encouraged. God is not disappointed in you. You are His precious child!!
