We need to understand that disappointment in life is simply part of life and when people disappoint us that is also a part of life. However, we can’t let that control us, we have a responsibility to remain stable and to continue on with God’s purpose for our lives. We can’t let disappointment dictate what we do.
Look at Psalm 94:12-13 see how it doesn’t say that God keeps us calm. It says He gives us power to keep ourselves calm. We are partners with God. His part is to give us the ability and our part is to be responsible for that ability!
A person who is irresponsible with God, wants God to do it all, they want God to do everything while they do nothing but go with their feelings and nothing else. We cannot let our feelings run the show here on earth. We need to stand up right now and shout out loud “I have attended my last pity party!” You will be surprised just how much better you will feel about yourself if you decide to take responsibility rather than try to avoid it.
Our God cares deeply for each one of us, but He will not do your part, our part. He enables us to do it, but let’s put an emphasis on this He WILL NOT do if for you! So learn to stand firm, take responsibility and begin working with God in order to have the blessed life He’s planned for you.
God, Your Word says that You’ve given me the ability to remain calm. I receive that today. I won’t let my feelings run my life, and I will be responsible and respond the way You want me to.
