Let me start this great article by asking you these questions,
Have you at one or the other put your trust in any man?
Have you met with disappointment on every occasion you do this?
Do you feel it is safe to put all your hope in man?
Do you feel God is very far away and in essence it is totally unnecessary to place your trust in Him?
Have you totally felt dejected on each occasion you have met with disappointment?
If you have answered "yes" to all of these or one these questions, then I strongly advise you to carefully read the remaining part of this article. It may actually be a very important success article that that will show you some few tips on how you can avoid been dejected or sad in your relationship with people.
Let me assure you that I was also placing so much attention on men and I have met with disappointments on almost every occasion.
Well I felt so bad and dejected after every of these sad experience. The good God however took control and gave a good lecture from His word on how I can overcome every of these disappointments. I am teaching you the various steps He taught me.
You must have an understanding of the man personality .This is very important if you must develop the ability to overcome this problem. Jesus also says categorically in
John 5:41 "I receive not honor from men" (KJV2000).
This is very useful information about the person of man.
Man is a spirit with a soul housed in a flesh. Now the flesh has nothing good or worthwhile that can come form it. It wars constantly with the spirit of man.
Every man is prone to mistakes. Every man has the ability to disappoint you! Jesus says "None is good except God" Yes, no man is good except God. So stop expecting the best at all times from man.
With this understanding, you will not break down whenever you meet any disappointment from man.
Put your trust in God: This is the first lesson God taught me and you must also this. Your trust should only be in God. You need to settle this in your heart. Write this in a sheet of paper "MY trust shall only be on God" and read again and again to yourself. It is very important and just like I said it is the very first step.
Trust in God to use man: You must allow your focus to be only on God whenever you expect anything from any man. The Bible says "Looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith" (Hebrews 12:2) (KJ2000). As you sign that business contract with that man. As you expect that favor from that man and as you go into that relationship with that man. Don't set your focus on what he says or promises. Rather, let your focus be on God to help him do it.
Pray it out: I have always prayed myself into obtaining anything I want form any man. Yes I pray it out. If I want it, then he must do it (if it is God's will).
Have options: Sometimes ago, I needed cash very fast for a particular purpose. I listed the names of my friends that can be of help. Prayed over the list and then called all of them. One of them finally was able to be of help. I got what I wanted and I never had any bad feelings towards others. So have options when you deal with man on any issue. If you fail to have options, you may be disappointed and this can make you feel dejected and sad.
I hope these tips are useful to you.
