|I don't want to be an angry bird :)|
So I prayerfully asked the Lord, "How do I let it go? How do I not keep getting angry, as the reason for it is not going to change?" and this came to mind: "Don't have any expectations."
Okay, that's depressing! But I mulled on it and took it further.
If I don't have any expectations:
- I won't be disappointed
- I won't be angry, thus
- I won't be resentful.
God did top it off by reminding me to place my expectations at His feet! Why? Because God NEVER disappoints!
So, firstly I had to ask God's forgiveness because anger hurts the person I'm angry with, me, and anyone around me. And secondly, I had to place all my expectations on Him.
This does 2 things:
- It removes my resentment, and
- also by placing my expectations on the Lord, He changes my heart and my expectations change for what His heart wants.
Psalm 62 v 5: My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.
My encouragement to you is to place your expectations on Christ, He moulds them if needed and He never lets us down.
