Ever seen this meme going around?

It’s a lot like how a human would perceive what happened in Joshua 2:16.

16 She said to them, “Go to the hills so the pursuers will not find you. Hide yourselves there three days until they return, and then go on your way.”

The spies went west when they were supposed to go another way back to their camp.

The needed to go the wrong way to go the right way. They had to.

Sometimes, you have to go the wrong way for a while before you can go the right way.

Feeling Anxious All the Time

Sometimes, in the middle of an emotional crisis, the last thing we’d want is to hear is how God will use our lows to build us up.

Sometimes, we want to dwell in our depression. Depression is addictive in the sense that it gets comfortable, too comfortable to try to escape. It’s comfortable because it’s familiar.

What people are unfamiliar with, they tend to stay away.

So when unfamiliar setbacks come our way, we want to quickly get rid of it. We wouldn’t want to spend time dwelling on it, mulling whether it is good or bad.

However, sometimes these setbacks are what we need to get our frets off the ground.

Are there setbacks that seem directly contrasting with what you planned?

Maybe it’s God’s plan.

Maybe God wants you to wait on something you’ve been trying to rush into. Maybe God wants you to stop watching Netflix write that book you’ve been telling yourself to write for so long. Maybe you twisted your ankle so that you could get some well-needed rest.

Whatever it is, try to seek God in it. Because only by divine intervention can you walk into your purposeful life.

Call to Action

I want you to seek God in your setback.

Posture your heart upwards and ask: God, what are you doing in this season. Was that you who did __? I believe it was you and it was uncomfortable, but I believe it was meant to prosper me, not to harm me.

You have to ask God for His plan to be able to see how it will unfold
