How many times have we said, “I am so frustrated?” More than I care to remember times of frustration have caused me to spout off the first thing that came to my mind. Often I deeply regret what was spouted moments after it was said. Left unchecked frustrations can color our lives and tarnish our attitudes toward God, life, and others.
As dangerous as frustration is, it can also be incredibly fruitful. Most of us have never stopped to think that God might be in some of our frustration. I want to suggest that He is often in the frustration seeking to change how we think and how we live. When we feel frustrated it may also be that God is seeking to speak to us about deeper character issues. How we treat others. Our levels of patience. Our self-absorption. While we often want to talk about what frustrates us and complain about it to anyone who will listen – God is wanting to deal with the root causes.
An excellent prayer today is, “Holy Spirit speak to me in the midst of my frustrations about my personal walk with Jesus.”
Can’t wait to see you this Sunday.
