“…Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.”(1 Sam 14:6)
After Joseph received a dream and David was anointed, they thought that their future was bright; however along the way they both experience many setback, disappointment and things that threaten the promises of God. Joseph and David kept moving forward in spite of the obstacles and opposition they faced. We can see in the long run that all their Setbacks were really The Lord Setting them up for His blessings and promises.
Beloved the Promises of God are sure, so if God has promised us something we can rest assure that “it shall come to pass” regardless of the setbacks we may encounter. The purpose of the Lord must be established in our lives, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” ( Rom 8:31)
I declare that Setbacks will not set us back, but setbacks will cause us to move forward to the place that the Lord has Set up for us.
