ASK LISA – GOD’S TRUTH

I tend to feel like I’m disappointing God or like He’s mad at me or leaves me when I fail. I’ve been told those are all inaccurate, but truly believing and living it out has been a different story. How can I be free from this plaguing cycle?

I tend to feel like I’m disappointing God or like He’s mad at me or leaves me when I fail. I’ve been told those are all inaccurate, but truly believing and living it out has been a different story. How can I be free from this plaguing cycle?

First, I want to validate how challenging, isolating, and defeating it must be to feel like the God of the universe is mad at you. I am so sorry you have had to experience this with the One who gave everything to be able to connect with you. Second, I want to stand with your friends and confirm that it is indeed a lie of the enemy to get you to believe something about the goodness of the Father’s heart for you that is not true. Third, I want to help you break this cycle once and for all. You are not called to manage this but to walk in victory over it. To believe that God is mad at you when you are human and making mistakes is not something that is coming from within you but rather something that you were taught. Somewhere along the lines of growing up and learning about life, someone taught you that to be human means you are subject to rejection. I encourage you not to be introspective and figure it out yourself but to ask Jesus and let Him show you. “Jesus, will You please reveal to me who I need to forgive for introducing me to the concept of rejection and abandonment for being imperfect?” If you are willing, make a choice to forgive that person with your free will. Meaning how you feel about it doesn’t matter. You are making a choice from your free will to forgive them. “I make the choice of my will to forgive _____ for teaching me that to be human means I will be rejected or abandoned. I send back to them what is theirs (their belief and operating system), and I take back what is mine (permission to be human, identity, peace, security) washed in the blood. I break agreement with the LIE that to error means that I am a disappointment to God. I break agreement with the LIE that God is mad at me for being human.

“Jesus, what is Your truth about being human and making mistakes? (Watch and listen to whatever He wants to show you). Father God, will You please show me a picture of how You feel about me when I mess up and fall short? (Watch and listen to whatever He wants to show you).”
