YOUR SETBACKS ARE MOMENTARY. Your setbacks are momentary.
Now you tell me you’ve never experienced setbacks, and I’ll show you the flip side of the universe.
But this one thing I can assure you on the strength of God’s steadfast word: Your setbacks are momentary. It is your deficient perspective that might blur your interpretation of that new challenge. It is your inadequate understanding of God’s grace that might make things appear hopeless. It is your meagre vantage point of God’s unmeasurable mercy that might blind you right now.
God is keeping record of your setbacks and soon they will become your advancements. God has not forgotten about you. Soon He will turn your troubles and tribulations into achievements and jubilations.
But that’s not all. The Word says that your momentary troubles are in actual fact working for your eternal glory. The anxiety and distress of this life are the stepping stones of your everlasting joy. Whatever burdens, hardship and harassment you may encounter now in this below, will account for immeasurable heavenly splendour. Your earthly tears will become celestial streams of water alongside the greenest meadows of delight.
Jesus is picking up the pieces of your broken vessel and He’s turning it into a piece of divine art. The Saviour gathers the crumbs falling from certain tables and He’s using it to prepare a feast for you in the Father’s house. The few drops of oil left in your jar is more than enough for our Lord to have your cup run over until you drink from your saucer in glory with Him.
Your setbacks are momentary. Your eternal glory awaits.
