Summary: What is in you is greater than anything that has happened to you, you can recover from any disaster because your destiny is greater..
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
The Jewish Bible says it this way:
“I am sure of this, that the one who begun a good work among you will keep it going until it is completed on the day of redemption.”
Regardless of what you may now see or how you may now feel, the truth is- Your Greatest Days Are Ahead. You’re not a finished product. You’re a miracle in the making. You have not reached your potential. The work God began in you He will finish. What God started in you He will complete!
You may be in the midst of the greatest battle of your Christian life. Hell may have made an all-out attack against you. Maybe you are in the middle of a trial, an affliction, or a setback that you cannot see any way out of. But I have good news for you!
YOUR DESTINY IS GREATER
THAN YOUR DISASTER!
God will bring to pass what He has promised you. Hell doesn’t have enough devils and you don’t have enough enemies to keep God’s purpose and plan for your life from being fulfilled! God didn’t bring you this far to forsake you. He has too much invested in you to give up on you now. Hell is not in charge of your life.
You don’t belong to the devil, you belong to God. Satan doesn’t control your destiny and Hell doesn’t have the power to stop you or keep you down. Just as the devil couldn’t keep Jesus in the grave, neither can he keep you in the trial, setback, or the affliction that you may now be in.
“Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.”
Peter said, “It was impossible for death to hold Him.” Jesus did not have enough enemies. The Roman soldiers did not have enough power; even satan himself could not stop the resurrection. Jesus was destined to go into the grave and He was destined to come out!
“Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”
Jesus knew that He would be crucified but He also knew after the crucifixion there would be a resurrection. He knew that the cross was not the end but only the beginning.
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
A setback doesn’t mean it’s over. A setback is positioning you for a comeback! A door shut means a door is about to open. An ending only means that there is getting ready to be a new beginning. The road to destiny consists of endings and beginnings, setbacks, and comebacks. If you are experiencing a great setback at the present time then get ready to experience a great come back!
“And the Lord turned the captivity of Job,
when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.”
Job experienced great loss, but in the end the Lord blessed him with twice as much as he had before. His latter end was greater than his beginning.
“ So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
He had also seven sons and three daughters.”
YOUR DESTINY IS GREATER
THAN YOUR DISASTER!
God will bring you out of the trial, the affliction, or the setback that you are experiencing. God brought Joseph out of the pit! Israel out of Egypt! Daniel out of the lions den! And the three Hebrew children out of the fire!
And He will bring you out of what you are in!
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth them out of them all.”
“…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
No storm is made to last forever, neither should your trial, affliction, or setback. You shouldn’t be fighting the same battle today that you were fighting last year.
“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ…”
