What to Do About Spiritual Frustration


Are you experiencing spiritual frustration? Someone e-mailed me this question: “Is there such a thing as spiritual frustration. If so, can you explain and what would you suggest as a solution?” Here’s my response:

Yes, I believe there is. You first have to discern if the frustration is a godly or satanic frustration. Sometimes the devil come with discontent to try to move us out of or ahead of Gods’ will. Other times, it’s a spiritual frustration from God that moves us more toward His will. Understanding what God’s will is and trusting Him to bring it to pass is a key. Much of our spiritual frustration comes from not trusting His timing or not knowing what His will is. Practically speaking, ask God what’s causing it and believe Him for a revelation. Pray in tongues a lot. Confess Scriptures over your life that have to do with wisdom and revelation and watch God expose the root of that spiritual frustration so you can deal with it.
