Are Setbacks Blocking Your Destiny?

During a very disturbed night drifting in and out of sleep, I heard something inspiring that I feel an urge to share. I hope this will encourage someone today.

Don’t let your setbacks hold you back from your destiny!

Picture a catapult. The farther back it is pulled, the further and more powerful the impact. The same goes for setbacks. It’s in that dire situation when you are stretched beyond known limits and find yourself trying to hold on for dear life to a line fraught with tension, that you must NOT try to get comfortable and carve a niche for yourself. Instead of dwelling in the past, focus on the future. Take aim at where you want to be. And most importantly… LET GO!

The Journey Has Only Just Begun

This was a word the Lord gave us the morning before we led worship at a church. Unknown to us, the church was ordaining leaders that day, and the word was a great blessing and encouragement to them.

The journey has only just begun. Just as a journey of a hundred miles begins with one step. To complete your journey, you must take thousands of steps. But fear not, all you need to do is take one step at a time. I am with you. I will instruct and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with my eye. When you turn to the left or the right, you will hear a voice behind you saying, this is the way, walk in it. I have given my angels charge over you to guard you in all your ways. I Myself will strengthen and uphold you with my righteous right hand.

 

Do not despise small beginnings, and do not be quick to judge the end by the beginning. For I am Alpha and Omega, both beginning and end. I know the end from the beginning. I will complete the good work I began in you. Remember, I am the same God who chose Joseph, Gideon, David, and Mary… even My Son Jesus was born in a poor stable. In your weakness, My strength will prevail. So humble yourself before Me, and I will lift you up. For I am the glory and the lifter of your head.
