Happy Tuesday Saints.
1John 5:4 “FOR WHATEVER IS BORN OF GOD OVERCOMES THE WORLD, AND THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD – OUR FAITH.”
Setbacks are a part of life. We live in an imperfect world where things are bound to go wrong, where things don’t always go according to plan.
You have control over how long it takes you to bounce back after a setback. You can sit around for weeks, months, or years feeling sorry for yourself, or you can choose to trust God for the strength to get back up and try again.
Psalm 40:2 says that the Lord “LIFTED ME UP FROM THE PIT OF DESPAIR, OUT OF THE MIRY CLAY; HE SET MY FEET UPON A ROCK AND MADE MY FOOTSTEPS FIRM.”
With faith in God, you can OVERCOME THE WORLD. He can lift you out of the pit of despair and set you back on solid ground and establish your footsteps again so that you can keep moving forward.
This world will do everything it can to knock you down, but with God on your side, it can’t keep you down forever.
Being more than a conqueror doesn’t mean you’ll never face any setbacks; it means that your setbacks don’t have the power to keep you down because God can help you conquer them.
Our faith can give us victory, but it’s our unbelief that will keep us down and out.
Saints, it doesn’t matter how your setbacks make you feel – if you trust God, your faith will give you the ultimate victory.
If you’re feeling discouraged after a setback, please know that your comeback is actually waiting on you. Your heavenly Father has the power to lift you up, and when you’re ready, He can set your feet back on solid ground.
How long you stay discouraged after a setback is up to you. How quickly you bounce back and get moving again is up to you too. As an OVERCOMER in Christ, I think you already know what you have to do.
Have a fabulous, faith-filled day. God bless and lots’a love,
