Is God disappointed with you?
I want to share a powerful truth with you this morning. That truth is that God is not, nor has He ever been, disappointed with you. You might find that hard to believe based on what others have told you about God. You may feel like that cannot be true based on poor decisions you have made in your life, but the fact remains that God has never been disappointed with you.
Let me explain how I know this. Like you I have encountered disappointment in life. Whether it’s a leader letting me down, a loved one that does not follow through, or I disappoint myself by not performing to the standards I know I can achieve. Whatever the source, in this life you and I encounter disappointment. The reason we encounter disappointment is because we go through life with certain expectations of people, leaders and ourselves. When those expectations are not met we have a gap between our expectation and our current reality. This results in disappointment. Here is the amazing truth about God; He knows your life from beginning to end and nothing you could ever say or do would ever surprise Him. He knew every mistake you would make in this life before you ever made it yet He still loves you and thinks wonderful thoughts towards you.
We are told in a passage in the Bible that God’s thoughts towards us are innumerable and if we were to try and count them they would amount to more than all the sand of the earth. In the quintillions of thoughts that God has had about you, not once has He ever had a thought of disappointment. I hope that encourages you today. I hope you move through this day with a spring in your step, knowing that God is thinking good thoughts about you.
How does knowing that God is not disappointed in you change how you live your life? Comment below.
