When you’re disappointed with God

Someone said…

“When you pray for an oak tree sometimes God will give you an acorn.”

Don’t let your disappointment cause you to miss God’s answer. Look at what he’s given you and not at what he hasn’t.

Take care of that acorn and it will become the oak tree you are longing for.

When disappointment occurs our faith is tested. Where you experience the deepest disappointment, residing in that situation that your enemy means for evil is an invitation to your greatest victory. Deep inside your loss is that acorn that will become the mighty oak that represents your destiny.

There are two forces warring to find a resting place in your heart. One is feeding you information that is building a case against God: If God is so good then why…? Where was God when…?

The other is pulling up and casting out all the seeds of unbelief and focusing and seeking and violently contending for the one voice that matters.
