Your Set Back Is Your Set Up To See His Glory – A Word by Kathi Pelton
Many of you are experiencing sudden “set backs” or what would appear to you as set backs. But the Lord has a better word for you, “Your current set back is actually a set up to see My glory come into your adversity.”
I assure you that in most cases the Lord did not cause your set back but He takes what the enemy means to harm you to set you up for a miraculous supernatural intervention— you will see His glory in your set back!
Right now our youngest daughter and her husband are traveling 2800 miles by car across the country to carry out their “yes” to go to where God is sending them. We will be joining them in just over a week. Their first day was what appeared to be set back after set back. Yet, we watched their set backs set them up to cause everything that began as a negative turned into a testimony of God’s goodness and hand upon them.
The great “I Am” is manifesting as the great “I Will!” He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself! He is the God of impossibilities and you need to know that the impossible does not frighten Him or worry Him! It merely creates a story board for the miraculous to be carried out!
We don’t go looking for set backs and we do not want to just accept attacks and delays but when God allows them to come; we can know that we are in a divine set up and we can rest in His faithfulness. The enemy wants to push you down but the Lord is saying, “Stand up and watch with joy because I Am about to break in with your breakthrough!”
“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19
I have heard many teachings on this verse and some say that the original language actually depicts a picture that would say, “When the enemy comes; like a flood— the Lord comes to lift up a standard against him.” Either way works for me!
There certainly are times that it feels like we are taken off guard by a “flash flood” of negative circumstances and set backs. And yet, even then it remains even more true that the Lord will come like a flood to propel us forward and set the enemy back! His standard will be raised in the midst of adversity and impossibilities! The fear of the Lord will come upon all who see what He does for you!
Don’t be sat down or set back but stand up and watch as the Lord propels you forward with a flood of His supernatural power. I hear heaven singing the old hymn, “There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb!”
It is being sung over you while angelic help and sovereign intervention is coming to release His glory in your story!
