Much to ponder - a lesson (or two!) for all here.
I'd have loved some personal examples to liven this piece up a bit.
Keep writing!

You have some good observations here. When writing a Bible study type of devotional, it is good to keep in mind that because your readers are Christians, most of them will already know this information, so you need to be able to keep their attention by making it personal or unique. Tell us about a time when you were not looking through the eyes of faith, or about a time when your expectations were high but the one you trusted to follow through let you down, or write some beautiful prose about how God held you up when everyone else disappointed you. That way our hearts are spoken to rather than our heads. Good job!

This would make a good bible study vs. devotional, I think, the references are good and the reading isn't too heavy, I was hoping for a little more 'story' to it though. Just a thought. Good job! ^_^
I agree with what the others said. I think it had a lot of good truth in it, but needed more to make it grab you and cause a course of action to obedience. Keep up the writing.
