Topic: When Frustration Sets In. Pt One [05/08/2017]

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2. 1 Kings 19:1-14

The Bible (the manual of life) teaches that in life, there is time for everything under heaven, in fact, the teacher meticulously analysed the different times. Eccl 3:1-8. At one point in time, we all have experienced time of sorrow, fear and frustration. A time when we felt like our world had fallen apart and collapsed totally. A time when we felt nobody really cares for us in this world, a time when we go through all we’re going through alone. Many times (due to fear) many people actually contemplate suicide, they feel it is better to die than to live. In actual sense, frustration sets into our life when we drift our attention from God and allow fear to enter our hearts.

In our Bible reading, you discover that Elijah had just won a great conquest against the prophets of Baal at Mount Camel. A victory that made the Israelites turn to God in total repentance but the voice of Jezebel’s threat created fear in his heart wherefore he fled for his life. When frustration sets in our hearts, what do we need to do? The answer is find in our anchor scripture which says, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. To overcome frustration is to fix your eyes on Jesus continually without drifting. Only then can frustration be defeated.


* Jesus, help me to fix my eyes on you daily in my journey on earth. Amen
