Precious Cornerstone

If You’re Disappointed

02/23/2020

THANK YOU for YOUR PRAYERS for my speaking engagement at LIFT AZ. The women were amazing and God is faithful! 

Are you disappointed? If so, in what? Or, are you disappointed in a person? Or, are you disappointed in yourself? God understands disappointment. Lots of things can cause us to feel let down. Sometimes our disappointment is because we have unrealistic expectations about others. I write about that in The Plan A Woman in a Plan B World. Other times, our disappointments are valid. No one is perfect, including us. First Peter 2:6 is encouraging because God wants us to know that there’s something He’s provided that will never disappoint us: our faith in Jesus. “Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.” Look around and consider what you’re building your expectations on. If it’s a dollar amount, a certain house, a perfect spouse, perfect children, a perfect friendship, job, or even you being perfect, then you will experience disappointment at times. But if you build your expectations on Jesus and your life on His teachings, you will not be disappointed. It’s our choice. Live disappointed or build our life on Christ.

Lord Jesus, You are the PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE on whom we can build our lives and not be disappointed. Thank YOU!

Are You Living with Disappointment?

Listen

Life is wonderful, but would you agree that it can sometimes be disappointing?  Yes, we might like to dream of a different life, but it’s not always possible. God said in Exodus 20:9 that work is a part of our life. “Six days you shall labor and do all your work.” Jesus said, as recorded in John 2:24 that He didn’t entrust Himself to any man, knowing what is in man. So what or who can we build our lives on so we’re not disappointed? Jesus.  First Peter 2:6 describes the hope to which we look: “I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone, and he who believes in Him (Jesus) will not be disappointed.” There’s that word – disappointed. If we’re disappointed in ourselves, another person, or a situation, we do well to remember that we live in a temporary world. Christ is God’s precious corner stone on which our heavenly future is built. We may be living with disappointment today. We will not be disappointed in heaven.

Lord Jesus, You are the PRECIOUS CORNER STONE. Thank you that even though we may experience disappointment in this life, we will not experience it in heaven with You.

Sometimes our disappointment is because we have unrealistic expectations about others. I write about that in The Plan A Woman in a Plan B World. Other times, our disappointments are valid. No one is perfect, including us and when valid expectations aren’t met, we can’t help but feel it.

If it’s expectations of a certain financial level, a certain house, a perfect spouse, perfect children, a perfect friendship, job, or even you being perfect, then you will experience disappointment at times. But if you build your life on Jesus and His teachings, you will not be disappointed. It’s our choice. Live disappointed or build our life on Christ.

Praise to Jesus, the PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE

“Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a PRECIOUS CORNER STONE,
And he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.” 

Are you a builder? If so, you know how important the foundation is to the rest of the building. It is also true of our faith. As Christians, we must know that at the very foundation of our faith is the fact that Jesus Christ is God’s choice, PRECIOUS Son. Knowing that, we can build our faith on Him. And as we do, we will not be disappointed.  

Lord Jesus, You are the PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE of my faith. I praise and worship You!
