Scripture of The Day

Withstand [the devil]; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace…will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen and settle you.
(1Peter 5:9-10)  Amp


No matter how long you’ve been living by faith, no matter how much you’ve learned about it, every once in a while you’re going to suffer a setback.  When that happens, remember this: Those setbacks are just temporary. You may have lost a battle, but you’re not going to lose the war. Just get up and go at it again.

You may ask yourself, “What happened?  Why didn’t I get the victory?”  It is usually because there was something you didn’t know!  I have been serving the Lord since 1982, I have spent hours in the Word, and guess what?  I don’t know everything!  Yet it seems like the more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know.

Use these temporary setbacks to seek God for more wisdom and knowledge.   Refuse to let setbacks knock you out of the game. After all, this thing’s not over till it’s over. And the Bible says when it’s all over, you’ll have won. So just be steadfast in your faith. In the end your victory is guaranteed.
