Crushed due to disappointments?
Have you ever being in situations where your faith felt like it had been crushed due to some disappointments? You have felt deflated like a balloon with all its air let out? What can you do?
Exodus 5:22-23 (NIV) 22 Moses returned to the LORD and said, "O Lord, why have you brought trouble upon this people? Is this why you sent me? 23 Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble upon this people, and you have not rescued your people at all."
Moses had finally gone out to confront Pharaoh. Head held high by faith, inspired by God's encouragement, only to have his wind knocked out and leave with his tail between his legs. Moses' faith took a real battering in the hands of Pharaoh. Moses was faced with failure, he was faced with rejection and revolt from the Israelites. When we are faced with disappointments in our life or ministry, when things did not turn out the way we expected - remember Moses. He too faced a very difficult situation. His disappointment was multiplied a million fold because it affected that many people.
Yet Moses rebound in His faith and led the Israelites out victoriously. So can you if you rebound in your faith!
