The Joy of Disappointment (Proverbs 3:5)


Many times we struggle with the reality that our Father knows what is best. We assume our way is right. But, as we rest in Him, His purposes always prove to be for our good and His praise. To be honest, that’s easy to see when the outcome is better that we had hoped, but difficult when we can’t see the good right now or maybe won’t till heaven.

As wise King Solomon said, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). – Bill Crowder

Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,

Pilgrim through this barren land,

I am weak, but Thou art mighty;

Hold me with Thy powerful hand. – Williams

God’s purpose for today’s events may not be seen until tomorrow.
