These are game-changing moments when a shift takes place and things begin to go your way. One word from God can shift the momentum forever.
I declare that the momentum has shifted. We are now on a comeback mode. Never mess with a person making a comeback. They are dangerous. They are violent. They had a brush with death and annihilation.
HOW TO MAKE A COMEBACK FROM A SETBACK
Finishing strong is impossible without divine assistance. Let God use your mistakes.
A setback can be because of our mistakes, failures and bad choices. Choices have consequences. We are not immune from bad choices and bad consequences. That is why we all need to understand that we can still finish strong and make a comeback from a setback.
WHEN IS REDEMPTION, RESTORATION AND RESTITUTION NEEDED?
Because there is a redeemer:
I know that my redeemer lives....
My Jesus I love you
I know thou art mine
My precious redeemer
I love you
We have a blood bought right to redemption; that right demands that God must have a people and we are that people. That is why the bible says, let the redeemed of the lord say so....those who have been redeemed from the hand of the enemy. Redeemed from the curse, redeemed from satan, redeemed from sin, and redeemed from sickness, disease, poverty and perversion.
WHAT IS REDEMPTION?
Define redemption: being bought from the slave market of sin and satan.
Price paid back in full.
Peace restored with God.
All the benefits of our covenant relationship begin to flow freely.
GOD ALSO GIVES BAIL- OUTS. HE DOES NOT ALWAYS ALLOW US TO FACE THE FULL FORCE OF OUR BAD CHOICES.
We make mistakes- when our choices bring bad consequences. God gives us bail-outs. It is called grace and mercy of God. It is undeserved. It is favor. It is not fair. God is not fair. He gives us what we do not deserve.
Romans 8:28- tells us how He turns our mistakes around.
Ephesians 2:8- by grace are YE saved through faith. Not of our own doing. It is a gift from God.
WE CAN BOUNCE BACK BECAUSE GOD IS A GOD OF RESTORATION
Romans 12:19- do not take revenge. Leave room for God's wrath. For it is written, vengeance is mine. I will repay.
How does God exercise vengeance?
Psalms 23:5-6: He sets a table in front of your enemies.
He vindicates you by success that shuts the mouth of those who hate you and wish you bad.
He also defends you and has ways of lifting you as a trophy of honor to vindicate you. That is why FALSE ACCUSATION AND JEALOUSY OF PEOPLE IS A SIGN THAT GOD IS ABOUT TO GIVE YOU A BIG PROMOTION. IT IS A SIGN OF DIVINE ELEVATION.
When we have been violated and treated unjustly by others or by circumstances. This is called Justice and Righteousness of God.
GOD IS OBLIGATED BY HIS WORD AND HIS NATURE TO BE A GOD OF RESTORATION AND RESTITUTION
Psalms 97:2- Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
Ps 89:14- Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; faithful love and truth go before You.
These are the two foundations of His throne. God must serve justice and God must act in righteousness. Vengeance is mine, I will repay. His vengeance is characterized by justice and righteousness.
We are living in the day of the vengeance of our God.
Isaiah 61:2- To proclaim the year of the favor of The Lord and the day of vengeance of our God to comfort all who mourn.
