Disappointment: How to Handle It

August 8, 2017

You have been disappointed and will be disappointed. So, how do you handle disappointment? In 1 Chronicles 17, God shut down David’s plan to build a temple, but instead of getting upset or angry, David responded by being humbly thankful. He prayed, “Who am I, O Yahweh God? And what is my family, that You have brought me this far” (1 Chronicles 17:16)? Try responding like that the next time your plan fails, when things don’t go your way. Then wait on God and watch Him turn your disappointment into a brighter future built on His promise.
