Your feelings will want to pay people back. Feelings will tell you, “Get in there and get even. Stand up for yourself.” If you let feelings rule you, you’ll get upset. You’ll end up giving away your joy. Don’t get on board with your feelings. It says in Psalms, “God has given us the power to remain calm in times of adversity.” It doesn’t say God will keep all the adversity from us, keep the negative chatter, the opposition. It says, adversity will come, we’ll have opportunities to get upset, but God has given us the power to stay calm.
God is ordering your steps. Sometimes we don’t understand it; it’s not comfortable. But like with Joseph, all the disappointments, delays, betrayals were a part of God’s plan to get him to the throne. He didn’t fight it; he embraced it. He kept a good attitude; he did his best despite what came against him. God is going to get you to your destiny. He’s going to work all things for your good. While you’re waiting, when you don’t see anything happening and things aren’t turning around, trust Him enough to enjoy your life. See the good in each day.
