“See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble and by it many become defiled.” Hebrews 12:15
Disappointed people are the most difficult ones to serve, or better said to advise them. Their mind is pretty much darkened by an evil spirit and it can hold them bound for years. You meet people who are disappointed for ten, twenty or more years. What is even more dangerous with these individuals is the next stage in their life-bitterness! Why is so dangerous and frightening? The verse above explains…it defiles others who come under the influence of their attitudes. Guard your heart around these people lest you become allies in their disappointment. I’m not saying you should not be around them to help and to serve, but in doing so, stay put and be alert to guard your heart from their bitterness. These people are constant in their grievances, nothing fits for them and they are never grateful!
Disappointed people are never grateful. Even when you bless them with any kind of gift, they will say:”Why did you spent money on me? You should have used the money to feed the poor.” Sounds off the roof spiritual, but unfortunately it’s just an excuse not to be grateful, because the disappointment has the grip on them. Again I will say: Guard your heart when you are around these people!
Disappointment is a state of mind when a person misses the ability to invest the trust in a right place.
The Bible says:”Cursed is the man who trusts in a man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord.” (Jeremiah 17:5)
Disappointment itself is a curse. When we place our valuable trust in others and when(not “if” because sooner or later we’ll realize they are just people like us) they won’t do what we expected from them, that moment we make a decision that they’ve failed us and we are disappointed in them. Could it be we are actually disappointed in ourselves for making the mistake of misplaced trust?
So, now that we’ve thrown some light upon these matters, we can conclude that having Holy Spirit dwelling in us, we’re no longer bound to live in a vicious circle of disappointment. God teaches us through Him to trust Jesus, to hope in Him and read the Word through the Holy Spirit, and the result is inevitable:living and tasting the state of already being blessed.
