The Underestimated God (Session VII)
God teaches His servant through disappointments in his Christian life. During these times, God exposes you to what you truly love and believe. Your disappointments reveal what you rest in, find satisfaction and security in, and where your ultimate treasure lies. However, you can be rest assured that His provision is loving. He will relentlessly and ruthlessly pursue you in his compassion and grace for your joy.
