Not Disappointed

(Official Orphan Annie Decoder Ring)

Today’s Verse: Romans 10:11 For the Scripture says, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.” NASB

A famous scene from the seasonal classic Christmas Story was when the boys ordered a “secret decoder ring” from their favorite radio show, Orphan Annie. The waiting for it to come in the mail was excruciatingly long. Then, when they finally got it and decoded the first secret message, what a disappointment. Instead of being some nuclear or world security secret, it was simply “Eat more Oval-teen.” We can understand how people can become jaded and even reluctant to trust anyone or anything after a life filled with disappointments. What a relief it is to know the One in whom we can fully trust with our very lives and know that we know that we know we will never be let down. Thant’s good news. I bet you know someone who would like to hear some good news. Why don’t you share this with them today.

May God bless your heart as you seek His.


  1. Praise the Lord for He indeed is one trustworthy GOD!

  2. Great message again, Bryan. It is so true that though all others have disappointed us in some way, God never will. He gives us every good thing and has a purpose and a plan to take us through the darkness of this world to eternity with him. How great is our God!
