 [1] Definition: A feeling of disappointment or defeat at being unable to accomplish one’s purpose.
1 Frustration is an indication of a lack of faith and trust in the Lord.  ·   · Philippians 4:6,7 · Hebrews 10:35, 36 meditate on God's word
2  Sometimes the Lord allows our plans to be frustrated because it’s simply not His time or His will.   · Numbers 22:18b · Proverbs 13:12 (God’s delays are not always denials.) · Proverbs 21:30 (If the Lord doesn’t want something done, no matter how “good” your ideas and plans are, they won’t work!) · Ecclesiastes 3:1 · 2 Corinthians 13:8 · James 4:13-15 · Psalm 37:4,5 (If you put the Lord first and trust Him, He’ll help things to work out.)
3 Frustration can result from trying to do things in our own strength.  ·   · Zechariah 4:6b · John 15:5
4 Sometimes frustration results from attempting a task that is beyond our training and experience or is not our “calling.” · Psalm 131:1 · Proverbs 15:22 (Taking good counsel before an endeavor is a good way to avoid potential frustrations.) · Jeremiah 45:5a      
5  Regardless of the source of frustration, pray to be more patient, trusting, and depending upon the Lord.     · Galatians 6:9 · 2 Peter 1:5,6 6.  Let the Lord do it through you – in His way and in his time.  · 2Corithians 3:4,5 · Matthew 26:39b (Jesus had to yield His will to God, too.)
  7. Regularly attending fellowships and listening to other peoples testimonies will encourage you. Heb 10: 24-25, psalm 73: 2,3,14-17. Question ; how do we overcome frustrations? Prayer: lets pray for those that are frustrated for comfort and strength.
