What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? (Romans 8:31)
I have always been inspired by people who have faced great setbacks in their lives, yet who have fought hard and achieved amazing comebacks. There is a long list of people who have done this: both real and fictional, secular as well as biblical, from centuries past to recent days.
I have tremendous news for you: Comebacks are not just for people you read about in the history books or the in latest edition of a weekly periodical. The power to bounce back is available to all. God is in the business of turning your setbacks into comebacks! Note what God’s Word promises the Christian in Romans 8:37: “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.”
Realize that God doesn't say, “Well, I’ll arrange things so you can just squeak by!” Neither does He say, “I’ll arrange your life so you can just barely endure.” No! He says, “In all things, you will overwhelmingly conquer!” We don’t just conquer; we overwhelmingly conquer, through the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And it is this amazing power—the power of the Creator of the universe—that will help you not to give up but instead to keep on keeping on so you can turn your setback into an overwhelming victory. May that victory be for the glory of God!
