Everywhere I go, I talk to people who feel “stuck” in life. Maybe they aren’t getting anywhere in their job, or they want to move to a new city and can’t sell their home, or their relationships aren’t what they hoped for. There may be many conditions in the world that can affect our position in life; however, what we see in the natural doesn’t set the boundaries for what takes place in the supernatural! God is bigger than every limitation you may face, and He has a plan to take you further than you ever dreamed.
Oftentimes, when people feel like they are stuck, it isn’t because of their external conditions but because of their internal conditions. Our life is often a reflection of what’s going on inside of us. If we are stuck in our hurt, bitterness and negative thinking, it can hold us back in other areas of life, too.
Scripture encourages us to cast off every weight and every care because spiritual and emotional weights hold us back in the natural and keep us from God’s best. The good news today is that God has given us the power to move past our disappointments, but the process starts with us making the choice to forgive and trust God.
We all face disappointments. We’ve all been hurt or betrayed. We’ve all had the opportunity to become offended. Moving forward in life isn’t about what’s happened to you, it’s about what’s happened in you. We all have a choice in how we deal with our anger and how we respond to the people who have disappointed us. Disappointments are for a season, but our relationships are for a lifetime. Don’t get stuck in disappointment; instead, set your focus on what matters most—eternity. Keep your eyes on God’s eternal plan. Choose forgiveness and peace so you can move into the life of blessing and victory He has prepared for you.
“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:31-32, NIV)
