At some time or other, we have all experienced feelings of frustration ranging from mild to intense. For some people, these feelings are merely a minor irritation, while others are driven wild by them. In either case, people sense that there is a barrier between them and what they want to accomplish. It may have to do with a marriage, a business, or even something mechanical, but in every case, we feel that we are being prevented from genuine accomplishment of some kind.
When beset by frustration, we often look at our circumstances and find ourselves saying, “If only…”—if only I had this or that, if only he or she would change, if only this hadn’t happened, if only I had good health . . . Such thinking leads to discouragement because it centers on externals that we cannot change. We need to remember that circumstances and people are not the problem. They only trigger something deep within that comes from hidden root causes. One such root could be our failure to really accept ourselves the way God made us. Or it could be that we are running from childhood mistakes or sins that have never been faced.
Another root cause could be a failure to deal with the will of God for our lives in the present. Whatever the case, we must realize that rearranging the circumstances of our lives cannot bring about internal peace. Only a transformed heart will provide that. God alone can give you a quiet heart and the peace that passes all human understanding. (Philippians 4:7).
We must always realize that in spite of the impending circumstances that might be facing us now, God is bigger than our mountains. Frustration is a natural phenomenon, but what makes the differences is how we deal with it. Frustration can actually make you to dabble into certain intentional habits (smoking, excessive drinking, drugs, immorality etc) that you wouldn’t normally do. When you get frustrated remember that the loving arms of the Lord Jesus Christ are all around you. Let us pray.
Lord Jesus, I pray for these my brethren that are going through period of intense frustrations. I pray for them that you will fill their hearts with Heavenly satisfaction. Lord Jesus, I pray that no matter the nature of the frustration, you will melt them away right now. I pray that any frustrations resulting from demonic manipulations will be neutralized right now. I stand in the authority in the name of Jesus! I stand in the authority in the blood of Jesus! I stand in the authority in the word of God! That you will set them free from all bondage of persistent frustrations. In Jesus name I pray.
Blessed are your eyes for reading this message. Please, don’t let this die: read it again, and pass it to others.
