You don’t become offended when you expect less from others. This is because you’re smarter enough to know that they are humans as you. Thus, they can’t ruffle your sense of tranquility. But, the minute you set your high expectations on people; you have handed over your inner power to them. This is why you are easily set off as soon as you get disappointing responses from them.
On the opposite side, there is no room for heartbreak the moment you wholly set your entire hopes in God. That conviction that He is sufficient to supply all needs will deliver the peace of mind. There is no other name like the name of Jesus. He delivers all the time. Have you ever seen Him failed or let you down?
Many beautiful things are attributed to God and no matter how many people attempt to mess up His image; Jehovah always stands up tall. He is above all and beyond all eternity, and because His mercies are incomparable.
Instead of on our Father, you invest your hopes so much on fleshes when you ought to turn to God. You entrust your children to be just the perfect pupils in their lives and when they fail to deliver, you could not help regretting that they probably would not have been born. Your wrath is directed at your bosses for slashing the end of the year benefits.
Hence, much frustration arises as you review the lists of betrays you were confronted with; by the numbers of acquaintances and families that shockingly portrayed to you their monstrous personalities.
In such situations, forgiveness is by far the final recourse. It becomes the impossible as long as those issues are still pending.
Nevertheless, this is where you get it wrong. Pardon is the open source to authentic deliverance from whatever situations we are. Thus far, you have taken God for granted and perhaps slipped in several places. Regardless of your wrongdoings, Jesus has refused to let you go. To Him, you are more precious than your shortcomings. Of course, He is aware of all the disappointment you experienced or still facing.
The most surprising is that His presence soothes your pains, heals the broken hearts and repairs the shattered dreams. Wouldn’t it be nice to draw closer to the only one who can be different from those people who messed up your lives; those who don’t even respect you; those who belittle your potentialities and never think of you as capable of being successful?
When God says you are His own, these are not simple words. You are His miracle. He has given you the power to become the one you are meant to be.
The problem is that, you cannot advance to be just that miracle God wants you to be unless you forgive and let pass.
After letting go, you have to celebrate Jesus, recognizing you are indeed His miracle. Confidence that He is going to transform your hard situation into the unexpected breakthrough you cannot even imagine.
