No dis-appointment

The counter fact to any disappointment in our lives is the spiritual fact that God's man, generically, can never be dis-appointed because God has appointed us—and His appointment is always good and cannot be reversed. For that reason, I came to the conclusion some years ago that appointment is the antidote to disappointment, and have embodied that fact in my thinking and living ever since—to good effect.

The Bible has many references to God’s appointing. For instance: “Who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people?” (Isaiah 44:7).

In Proverbs 8:29, 30, Solomon says that when God “appointed the foundations of the earth: then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him."
