“Dealing with Disappointment”

This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.

David, the mighty king of Israel made a big mistake. He moved the ark of the covenant in a way it was not supposed to be moved. He put it on a cart. He had a brand new one made, but it was still going against what God said and wanted. 2 Sam 6:3a So they set the ark of God on a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab…

David’s plans to honor the LORD ended in disaster, and he was REALLY disappointed. The scriptures tell us that David was angry with God, and that David was even afraid of God. He didn’t know what to do. He retreated, and waited.

Do you feel a little like David? Frustrated, waiting or maybe even angry at God? Or are you fearful? David recognized his mistake, and made it right! Maybe you haven’t even made some BIG mistake, but what is it that God wants to do in your life, in the waiting? God hasn’t abandoned you; He hasn’t forsaken you. He has inscribed your name in the Lamb’s book of Life, make sure to keep your own hand, in His all-powerful hand. I can’t wait to see y’all in person and be able to give out BIG hugs!!
