#641 – Moments of Stretching

What is meant for you, others are not designed to carry. To get frustrated or even angry, because few have stood in the gap, as friends or as family, during your time of crisis is a waste of time.

God uses these moments of stretching, to allow for self examination. It is about the difference between, what you want and what you need. Wanting support from many directions, this is fine, but unrealistic.

However, the thing that you need is to be denied and disappointed, because this is how your character is formed, your integrity is built and your core values are developed.

When the world is not on your side, embrace the offense, but do not be let down, because this is what God has prescribed for you. You have been given the antidote to fear, long-suffering.

Psalms 139:24-24
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
