May 17, 2020 | Daily Decrees, Pastor Brenda Kunneman


Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off (Isaiah 55:13).


Disappointment is different from grieving. It’s not usually as tragic. It’s more of that little feeling of wanting something to have turned out differently but also accepting the fact that it didn’t. Learning to accept certain elements of disappointment is healthy in the sense that it makes you well balanced. However, it’s not so healthy when a person is hit with repeat disappointments, particularly in one specific area. After a while it takes the wind out of your sails. Repeat blows of disappointment can be spiritual and incited by the enemy.
They are also a demonic tactic intended to discourage you in prayer. Begin declaring that repeated encounters with disappointment are not allowed to have a foothold in your life or situation!
