TOPIC: A Setup for a Comeback
BASIC SCRIPTURE: Genesis 15
One of the most important keys to overcoming challenges in life is understanding that: Every setback is a setup for a comeback. Take note of what Joseph told his brothers: “You meant evil, but God turned it around for good…” Jesus taught His disciples, “unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it abides alone.”
You need to understand that every bitter experience of life can be used by God to bring forth valuable things in your life. Those ugly experiences that have threatened to rob you of your dreams and aspirations can be stepping stones into your place of prominence. That was the case for Joseph! The challenges and bitter experiences that he faced could have been stumbling blocks, but he saw them differently. He overcame the hurt and disappointments and went ahead to make a difference in the lives of people.
He understood that God was on his side, and with God on his side, his latter days would be far better than his former days. He refused to allow the setbacks to set him back. He refused to allow those disappointments to limit him. His philosophy was clear: Losers Focus On What They’re Going Through, While Winners Focus On Where They’re Going To. He looked on the bright side of everything! Do the same!
When he was in prison, he noticed that two prisoners who were always happy and excited were unusually sad one morning. He walked up to them to cheer them up and infected them with his joyful, hopeful spirit. They told Joseph their dreams and Joseph gave them the interpretation.
Through those dream manifestations, a couple of years after that, Joseph was summoned to come and interpret the king’s dream, and that was the beginning of the fulfilment of his dreams. I decree: You shall INTERPRET THE DREAMS OF KINGS FROM THIS SEASON in Jesus name!
Joseph was tougher than the tough times! And at last, he endured and triumphed. Remember this: Out Of Your Pain Comes Your Purpose! Yes! God has a plan! He is not Trying To Change Your Mountain, He Is Using Your Mountain To Change You! You will be greater and bigger! Hold on and hold out! (Give out at least 7 ODM copies/ Help other lives).
