Daily Devotional – 4/18/15 “Your Set up!”

I thought I’d share some of the devotional I did this same day last year because baby, it shoal will fit for somebody today! Yea, see; no matter what you go through, it is all a part of the setup that God has for you! It doesn’t matter what you face, it’s a part of the setup because after the setup it’s then time for those folks who counted you out to see God’s goodness. After the setup, those folks who’ve been waiting for you to fall will see God’s plan be manifested through your life! After the setup, those who said you’d never amount to anything are now stalking your social media pages trying to count your blessings. After the setup, those who put their mouth on you, now have nothing to say but they are ear hustling on your conversations to see how you did it! After the setup, those who were kicking dust on you, while you were down, are now dusting off your back. Oh, I wish you’d get the point I’m trying to make here.

After the setup comes a set up! Yea, God has now set you up higher – you’re out of harm’s way! God has now set you up out of the reach of man’s hands who try to stab you in the back. God has now set you up so that you can no longer hear what “they” say. God has set you up so that it no longer hurts, as bad, when fake friends leave. God has now set you up so that everything you touch is blessed. God has now set you up so that the path you’re walking is the one He designed. Yea! You have read in Psalm 23:5 where it says, “You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings,” haven’t you? Psalm 16:5 says, “LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.” What more do you need to carry on? Yes, this walk is hard but keep going because if you stop you have no way of knowing what’s next. Keep pushing through because God is simply setting you up for something major and when God sets you up there isn’t a man alive who can take it! Oh, after the setup comes a shouting that will shake some stuff loose. After the setup you’ll sing a song you’ve never song before. After the setup, you’ll never settle again but you’ll serve God wholeheartedly. After the setup, your spirituality won’t ever be the same because now it’s sanctified! After the setup, you won’t look the same! After the setup, you won’t talk the same! After the setup, you won’t even walk the same! After the setup come a set up! Look out for it!
