This is Not a Setback; it’s a Setup!

Posted on Posted in devotions

“He does not fear bad news, nor live in dread of what may happen. For he is settled in his mind that Jehovah will take care of him” Psalms 112:7, The Living Bible.

My sister, what you perceive to be a setback is no setback at all; it’s God positioning you to receive a manifestation of His glory and goodness. Don’t focus on the closed door. Wipe those tears and look harder. Search deeper, and you’ll see what He’s already provided. It’s staring you right in the face. He prepared the blessing before they gave you the disappointing news. He prepared the divine opportunity. He prepared an open door for you. Run through it my love! Run through it at full speed! This is not a setback; this is a divine setup!

Put your hand on your heart, and say:

“LORD, thank you for this divine setup from you! I have no fear of bad news! My heart is fixed trusting in you! I say it again! I have no fear of bad news! My heart is fixed trusting in you LORD! Before fear and worry can grip this heart of mine, you surround me with your peace. You surround me with your love. Open my eyes to see that you are positioning me to receive from you. Fill me LORD and grace me so I can run through the open door that you’ve set before me at full speed! Thank you LORD! In the name of Jesus, Amen!

  1. Oh, how timely is this message. After six months of job searching, I had my first two interviews. I was not hired. With empty bank accounts and closed doors, the disappointment is here. Thank God for this divine setup. Help me to look deeper at the doors you have shown me. Help me not dwell on the closed doors.
