Sometimes because of wrong choices, disobedience or sin, we miss out on God’s “Plan A”.
The good news is, God always has a “Plan B”, a “Plan C” and whatever it takes to get us to His final destination for our lives. Worse yet, maybe you weren’t the person who made the bad choices, but somebody else’s foolish decisions cause you to experience wrenching heartache and pain. You have felt devastated, heartbroken and disappointed.
Maybe you invested a lot of time, effort, money, emotion and energy in a relationship; you did your best to make it work out. But for some reason, things got off course and now you feel as though you have been robbed.
Regardless, you must stop dwelling on it . Let the past be the past. Forgive the person who caused you the trouble and start afresh right where you are today. If you continue to dwell on those past disappointments, you will block God’s blessing in your life today. It’s simply not worth it.
In the case of King Saul and Samuel the Prophet, unfortunately, Saul refused to live in obedience to God and eventually God rejected him.
Imagine how the Prophet Samuel must have felt. He had spent so much time with Saul! Samuel begin nursing his wounded heart and God asked him an important question: How long are you going to mourn over Saul?
God is asking us a similar question today: How long are you going to mourn over that failed relationship? How long are you going to mourn over your broken dreams?
When we excessively mourn over things, we stop God from bringing fresh, new blessings into our lives. In other words, God says,” if you will quit mourning and get going, I’ll show you a new, better beginning.
Anyways… it worked for me! Such a right now word from the Lord today!
