Well, it depends on who you’re looking up to. If you’re looking up to man, then you should know that dissapointment is part of the nature of man. This also means that it shouldn’t surprise you when a man fails to fulfill something he promised you.
On the other hand, if it is God you are looking up to, then you can be rest assured that things can only get better, no matter how many dissapointments you’ve had in the past. Let me show you a few scriptures:
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
That’s right! This is something that should always be in your consciousness, “All things work together for your good”. The rejections, the denials, the dissapointments, the heartbreaks, they are all on an assignment to bring you good.
I’m not sure what caused the dissapointments you had last week, but I’m quite sure that if it’s God you’re looking up to, then prepare for good days ahead. I wish there’s a more inspiring way to say this, but those who’s trust is in God always laugh at the end, no matter the situation. All things work together for their good.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
One of the reasons why I love this scripture is because it guides you on how to look unto God. If you claim to be looking unto God, then you should be lightened to a point where you no longer feel ashamed by your challenges. This means that looking unto God is not complete without accessing light. It is the light you access in the process that takes the shame off your face and ultimately changes your countenance. Like Hannah, once your countenance changes, then your Samuel will come.
Even as you read this, if your face still feels sad or ashamed, then you most likely haven’t caught light. You can’t catch light or revelation from scriptures and still be sad. Revelation is powerful, the moment Hannah received revelation, her countenance changed.
So don’t just look up to God casually, sit down with the bible and access light that is capable of changing your countenance. A change of countenance simply indicates that joy has been activated within you. And once your joy is activated, you can draw life out of the wells of salvation.
You can’t access revelation and still be sad. Any revelation that keeps you down wasn’t a revelation in the first place. Revelation should keep you going, not keep you stagnant.
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
It is one thing to catch a revelation and another thing to act on that revelation. Faith is the name of the action birthed from the revelations you have about God.
So it’s possible to have revelation and still fail in life. Revelation alone will not avert dissapointment, it is revelation and faith that will.
Your revelations doesn’t please God, it’s your faith in that revelation that does. That scripture says, “without faith, it is impossible to please God…”.
7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
So when God is finally pleased with your faith, He makes man to be at peace with you. Even if that man is an enemy and is bent on dissapointing you, God will make him be at peace with you.
So you see, the problem has never been the men that promised to help you, the problem has always been your disalignment from this wisdom. No man should be able to reject you when God is pleased with you.
I hope this has brought enlightenment to someone.
Remain ever blessed, in Jesus precious name!
