“There’s nothing more dangerous than someone making a comeback." -TD Jakes.
Comeback: a new effort to win or succeed after being close to defeat or failure.
So many of us have been walking through seasons of loss, pain, depression, fear, lack, intimidation, health issues, divorce, heartbreak and/or darkness. I know the feeling of waking up and feeling like nothing will ever change, feeling stuck and wrecked. Every day is exactly the same or every day is a never ending cycle of crises and fires that never seem to burn out. I’ve had those nights where all I could do is cry and I would ask, “When is my ship going to come in?” God has been putting on my heart the need to share that your comeback season is coming! No matter how hard and hopeless your life may seem. No matter how far you’ve fallen, your comeback is coming.
Can you imagine losing all of that?! Maybe you’ve lost some or maybe you’ve lost it all, but one thing is for sure, your comeback season is right around the corner. There may be friends or family that have been telling you something different and put things in your head that you’ve caused this or say things like, “How can you have so much faith in a God that allows so much harm?” Just like Jobs friends blamed him and spoke on things they really didn’t know about.
What did Job do in the midst of all of his loss?
He didn’t lose the most important things: God, faith, prayer and trust in God.
What did God do for Jobs comeback? God goes all out and makes his comeback loud, big and more than Job could have ever imagined (especially when Job was in the midst of losing everything).
He restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. (Job 42:10)
All of Jobs brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him. (Job 42:11)
He blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. (Job 42:12)
He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. And he also had seven sons and three daughters. (Job 42:13)
He gave Job long life and he got to see his children and their children to the fourth generation. (Job 42:16)
How are you going to allow God to use your setbacks as comebacks? Do you trust that He will and is able to bring about a comeback? What are you doing in the midst of waiting on your comeback?
The clock has been set by God for your comeback Claim it and receive it in Jesus name
I wanted to share parts of one of my favorite poems ever written. It’s a poem I recite a lot in my mind and I have it hanging as a reminder on my wall.
