“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.”
There are periods in life when we have to contend with setbacks. The most important thing in such times is your response.
The reason is simple. There are people who experienced the same loss of employment or misunderstanding or whatever you are facing, and triumphed. There are also those who failed. Your marriage may be on the rocks or your grades or finances may be suffering.
There are motivational buttons you can press which will supply you with adrenaline to overcome your setback.
- Remember your enemies. Don’t give them the power to rejoice over you.
- Decide not to stay down. It’s a temporary situation.
- Remember, the word of God is light for dark periods; let it guide you out.
The Lord is on your side. Now rise and overcome your setback!
